A contemporary, light oak floor for a Lake House in the Cotswolds

Meet Osterley, our latest addition to the Landmark collection. Katie McCrum Studio was after a neutral floor with distinctive grey tones for a Lake house in the Cotswolds, and Osterley fitted the bill perfectly. The whole project has a whopping ten-page feature in the April edition of Elle Deco and is a brilliant example of how important the choice of floor is to set the tone in a scheme. McCrum took further inspiration from the natural earthy tones surrounding the property for the interior.

Light oak flooring

The light and bright tones of the Osterley oak floor form a sound foundation to this scheme featuring calm greys and bleached neutrals. The floor reflects the light streaming in through the large windows and works as a perfect backdrop to the many natural textures found in the rugs and accessories.

Diagonal flooring

Katie McCrum cleverly designed the floor to be laid on the diagonal in the living area, creating dynamic lines within the space and leading your eye towards the stunning lake view.

Adjacent to the living room is a hallway, separated by double metal doors. The boards in this flooring area run in the opposite direction, creating an interesting 45° chevron point where the two different floors meet. The staircase and landing on the first floor also feature Osterley. Note the balustrade with matching handrail which is meticulously set withing the floor and offers an interesting architectural feature.
