Hip hygge hideaway


Lady of the lake





The Huntsman Lakehouse, a three-storey luxury villa in the Cotswolds, topped with a solarium suite, shows off the artistic mettle of the Yoo Design Studio’s creatives. There’s ample country cosiness, with armchairs by the fire, tactile fabrics and barnwood furnishings, but charcoals enhanced with splashes of acid yellow and dainty knits matched with industrial lamps and teal-lacquered finishes add modernity. An adorably dressed children’s room makes this family friendly, and terraces overlook tranquil Huntsman Lake.
