Pippa Paton

Twenty First Century Cotswolds is the first book from award-winning interior designer and spatial planner, Pippa Paton.

The book showcases the diversity of the characterful buildings of the Cotswolds as well as the various ways people choose to live in them.  An exploration of the breadth of styles that fall under the heading of 21st century design, Twenty First Century Cotswolds provides insight into how these beautiful buildings can be sympathetically transformed for modern-day life.   

The way we live has changed dramatically over the centuries.  We have now arrived at the 21st century desire for open-plan, multi-functional family homes; inhabiting living spaces in completely new ways.  An underlying demand for functionality, communication, ease of living, high-end technology and extremely luxurious amenities is also shaping the way in which homes are being designed and redesigned.     

Twenty First Century Cotswolds demonstrates a less invasive, specialist approach to transforming character properties for contemporary living.  The focus has shifted towards exposing, enhancing and protecting the historic features and materials of these buildings and celebrating their individual nature. 

This contemporary interior design book features gorgeous pictures throughout as well as a beautifully written foreword by Country Life’s Mark Hedges and a preface by celebrity Cotswold resident Rory Bremner.
