Marina Fogle's country cottage

Writer, broadcaster, producer, mother, and wife to Ben, Marina Fogle welcomes us into her Oxfordshire home.

Bespoke solutions with inspirational shutters

With renovations almost complete on their country cottage, Marina wanted to find the right solutions for her kitchen, bathroom and summer room. She called in Thomas Sanderson to see if we could help her create a shutter look that suited her needs. We had the perfect solution.

“I really like the clean look of shutters”

Marina appreciates the seamless uniformity that shutters bring to any room, while displaying a relaxed style of decor throughout her home, with eclectic artifacts from travels and a love of bold colours. There's lots of different colours in each of the rooms, from the mixed kitchen units to the decorative bowl sinks in the bathroom, so the soft white shutters bring a sense of calm to the decor.

“they look and feel exactly the same”

Authentic and natural are bywords for the Fogles, both in life and in decor, and Marina was surprised by how wood-like her vinyl shutters were. With the perfect combination of practicality and good looks, Marina can just use her shutters without any worry over warping or cleaning, leaving her free to enjoy her busy family life.
