Inside a Renovated Former Rectory by Sims Hilditch

In a quaint English village, renowned interior design firm Sims Hilditch transformed a historic home that had once been a rectory into a subtle, cottage-style weekend escape. The structure dates to 1630; a couple of additions were made throughout the following centuries, and Emma Sims Hilditch, the designer behind the company, wanted to bring together the house's various styles into a cohesive design for the homeowners. Caught up in the busyness of London life, the clients were hoping for a restful retreat from the city that would also honor the home’s history. “They wanted the style to be sympathetic to the age of the building,” says the designer, “but still at the contemporary end.” Read on for our tour of the refashioned rectory.
