Ed Westwick & Amy Jackson’s Dream Home

Actors Ed Westwick & Amy Jackson build their dream home in the English Countryside, using Tannery Brown from the Deco Plank collection to create a contemporary-rustic design.

Last year, actor and musician Ed Westwick undertook a 9-month renovation with his fiancée, actress Amy Jackson, turning their country house into their dream home. Once complete, Ed took to Instagram to say that since moving from home at the age of 19 to relocate to America, he has lived in many places, but nothing had ‘felt like home’ until now.   Located just outside London, Ed explained how they loved the energy of the house, which had been cherished by a family for over 35 years before them; and now, it was their turn to put down roots and build a life together, with a home designed entirely by themselves.

“This is our first home together and our first time doing a full renovation. It was crazy and fun and amazing!

Sharing their design on Instagram, Ed explained some of the key elements that helped curate the contemporary countryside design the couple wanted: “We were after rustic-modern countryside feel. The limewash technique brought a natural element indoors and the colour was specially curated by the eco friendly yet super luxurious @kalklitir – a beautiful family run business in France which prides itself on sustainability. The art, from my favourite @maddoxgallery gave the room a real burst of life – Jay and his team are the BEST!! Then we finished it off with the warmth of rich @v4woodflooring which elevated the whole room.”

When it came to the flooring, Amy and Ed chose Tannery Brown from our Deco Plank Collection. With deep brown tones, tumbled edges and pitting details on the surface, this plank was the perfect choice to complement their rustic-modern design. Measuring 190mm wide and 1900mm long, these European Oak Planks were perfect for the large open-plan design that completed the ground floor. Whilst the colour oil provides a warming and durable finish, perfect for busy homes.

When discussing why they chose Tannery Brown, Ed explained: “We knew we wanted a darker wood which feels so rich and cosy. We found V4 through social media and contacted. The team was super helpful and quick!!”

The final design is a high-end, contemporary-rustic home, that perfectly captures Ed and Amy’s vision with its country charm. The large open space is flooded with light, creating a harmonious design between the deep brown hues of the Tannery Brown floor and the limewashed walls and ceiling. What’s more, the plethora of windows effectively connects the interior with its English countryside surroundings, effortlessly creating an internal sanctuary for the couple.

“The goal was to create a home that felt comfortable and elegant. Like anything it wasn’t simple, we tried things out and have got to where we are. We feel super good! The inspiration comes from our travels and experiences throughout life, Italy, Africa, India, America and of course England.”

When describing how he would describe the style of the home, Ed told us it was “a reflection of our life up to this point.” When asked what their favourite thing about the design was, Ed Explained it was the “reminders and a feeling which brings us warmth and feel settled.” Before going on to say “There has been so much living out of a suitcase over the years. It’s great to have this foundation.”

Overall, Ed and Amy have created their dream home, filled with charm and character. When discussing how they have found the floor since moving in, Ed concluded: “It’s everything we wanted. We love it!”. Why not order your very own sample of Ed and Amy’s Floor by clicking here, and start your dream flooring design today?
