    Default A farm in Herefordshire

    whitecross farm, herefordshire, UK

    Sally and Mark Bailey, the proprietors of Baileys Home & Garden in the UK, espouse a simple philosophy: “Repair, reuse, rethink.” They applied these principles to Whitecross Farm, their home in on tiny village of Ross on Wye in Herefordshire. “One of our favorite things is to reuse unloved bits and pieces (small or large) that we find on our travels, and give them a new lease of life. It’s our version of recycling. Abandoned bobbins from old textile mills turn up on our shelves as egg timers, lamp bases, or string holders; scraps of floorboard become mirror frames, tables, or even kitchen units.” Photos via Light Locations.

    No. Too white, too barren, too spartan, uncomfortable chairs, it's trying to
    be interesting and playful (the airplane model, the "cycles" letters) but it's
    not effortless. The kitchen/dining area has potential and has succeeded
    best at what I assume they were going for.

    Way too drab.. I might have liked it if they followed through all the way with what they were going for.. but it's a farm house so I guess pragmatism trumps aesthetic appeal.

    Sadly, after the first picture, the first thing I thought was: If their sofas face each other, then where is the TV?

    LOL I think the idea is for people to talk to each other instead. But I don't like any of it. COLOUR please!!!!
