Lena Tindall, the second daughter of Zara and Mike Tindall, is celebrating her fifth birthday today. She is being raised, along with Mia and Lucas Tindall in Aston Farm on the Gatcombe Park estate, which is owned by Princess Anne.
In fact, the Princess Royal lives on the main property on the Gatcombe Park estate just up the road from her daughter’s family.
Kunal Trehan, the Design Director at Touched Interiors spoke exclusively to Express.co.uk to explain what Aston Farm looks like inside.
He said: “Aston farm resides on the greater 700-acre estate of Gatcombe Park owned by Princess Anne.
“There is often some confusion with reference to the main house in which Princess Anne resides, but the seven-bedroom farmhouse Aston Farm is different visually and in size when compared to the main residence.”
The expert explained whether or not the property reflects Zara and Mike’s down-to-earth personalities.
Mr Trehan claimed: “The farmhouse has a rustic yet prominent exterior and a warm and inviting interior which really makes a connection to the great outdoors.
“Its exterior appears to be a little wild but yet tamed. The interior design is modern but grounded with earthy greys mixed with warm hues and splashes of metallic copper, which echoes the couple’s personality. This is a house that is designed to be lived in, and comfort is at its core.”
Also exclusively commenting on Zara and Mike Tindall’s Gloucestershire home design, Sam Greig, a Senior Designer at Swoon, said: “The two main styles that we see in the living areas are country chic and industrial. Exposed brickwork is softened by intricate wall art, and statement sleek marble furnishings are contrasted by rustic original wooden beams.”
Mr Greig claimed that the Tindalls do have colours and themes inside their home that shows “power and importance”, despite them being a down-to-earth couple.
He explained: “In any space, the dramatic hue, navy blue, plays a role of elegance, opulence, and sophistication. As the shade was originally worn by royal officers in the 1700s – hence the term ‘navy’ blue – it can also signify power and importance.
“The shade is playfully used in the Tindall home in their kitchen, featured in the cupboards, and dining seating. This is classily complemented with copper hardware and drop lighting to create a beautiful contrast between dark and light.
“Panelling is a simple yet effective way to give your space a distinctive look and feel without overbearing the overall room design and can be chicly carried throughout the home using additional wooden accessories – just like Zara does.
“We see a few examples of wooden panelling and accessories throughout the Tindall home, with a feature media wall surrounding the TV and sound bar.”
Francesca Hadland, a Styling Expert at Bridgman exclusively added: “Aston Farm, the home of Zara and Mike Tindall, along with their three children, offers the family a spacious space to relax and socialise with their royal neighbours within the Gatcombe Park estate.
“Whilst the property itself is a heritage-listed haven, the interior is much more contemporary, reflecting the taste of this younger branch of the Royal Family tree.
“The inside of the home features gorgeous oak beams on the ceiling and rustic brick walls mixed with modern elements such as a media wall and in-built kitchen appliances. A colour palette of muted tones allows the property to bridge the gap between the home’s traditional exterior and updated interior.”
