6 Cotswolds home transformation stories to follow


From stone cottages to creative modern renovations, there are so many beautiful homes in The Cotswolds to get inspired from. Below are a few of our favourite Cotswolds home transformation and renovation Instagram accounts and overall home innovators in The Cotswolds.

Bee Osbourn


Bee is an interior designer and one of our favourites when it comes to Cotswolds home inspiration. She made the sudden move to the countryside and turned a run-down thatched cottage into the dream home you see across her Instagram page today.

Her amazing interior and renovation work has turned into a professional studio, bringing her signature style to hotel and residential projects. You can also visit Bee’s shop in Chipping Norton to pick up her designs to take home with you.

Castellum - Dorcas George


The Red Sheds is the most innovative renovation we’ve seen this year, creating an amazing home from four farm barns. We spoke with Dorcas George-Jones of Castellum, an award-winning prime construction company about building this dream home in one of our journal posts. You can read it here but here’s a little spoiler, expect lots of beautiful Cotswolds stone paired with pops of bold colour, metal and creative eco-conscious home solutions!

Brooke and Paul - Our Cotswold House


A Grade II listed Cotswolds cottage and barn renovation, we love Brooke and Paul's Instagram account for documenting all the hard work that goes into a beautiful historic home renovation. A few years in and the works are still going. Their Instagram shares a combination of gorgeous interiors and the progress made on the home so far while documenting the continuing journey of the cottage’s renovation including the farm barn.

Emma - The Little Stone Cottage


Emma’s little Cotswolds home is cosy, lovely and we adore her vibrant yet simple interior styling. She has just taken on her first client project, which is actually converting the beautiful Cotswold stone barn for Brooke - Our Cotswold House (above!). Emma has been documenting the barn’s plans and journey across her stories and grid posts so definitely worth following along to see how the barns evolves into something gorgeous!

Hugh and Hannah - A Cotswold Farmhouse Project


Hugh and Hannah are currently renovating an 18th Century Cotswold farmhouse and you can follow the entire journey over on their Instagram. We love the detailed breakdown of how the renovation works are progressing, from blueprints and designs to capturing the amazing transformation work that’s already complete.
