One of the really interesting aspects of my business is seeing some beautiful properties and being privileged enough to see people in their home environment.
Today I met a couple who’ve spent several years renovating a farmhouse and are most of the way through converting a granary which they’re planning to let out for holidays. A very long high-banked drive (always such an inviting way to approach a house – makes you feel as though you’re being drawn in and you never know what’s awaiting you at the other end) led into a courtyard with the granary straight ahead – with the most striking large turquoise windows and doors. A really bold choice and, wow, it works. The owner really knows how to use colour; I can’t wait to see it when it’s finished.
