Costello and Poppy, styled by Gayle Scott
Renovating a 350-year-old cottage in the English countryside, interior influencer @thecottagebythebridge perfectly pairs the Costello sofa in Stone brushed linen cotton with the classic Chesterfield design of the Poppy armchair in Taupe brushed linen cotton to create a rustic elegance in her restful snug.

Upholstered in fresh-feeling linens and featuring warm wooden legs for a space inspired by natural materials and organic textures, Gayle’s chosen comfy couple beautifully blends in with her minimalist interior style.
- Keep it minimal: For a simple rustic elegance, keep your colour palette minimal. Investing in tonal neutral shades creates a calming space that feels classic.
