CLOCKWISE, FROM TOP LEFT
An old school desk and desk lamp work well with vintage artworks; a corner of the stone-paved courtyard is reserved for potted plants; this multi-panelled casement window in one of the five bedrooms offers the perfect backdrop and wide sill for a vase and collectables; Scout and Alia love their country garden; ‘Owls of the British Isles’ wallpaper by Abigail Edwards features in Arlo’s bedroom; one of the two bathrooms is tiled in slate and has vintage fittings; a shuttered arched window throws light into one of the upstairs bedrooms; chickens at the garden gate. FACING PAGE The main bedroom features white timber panelling and an antique galvanised barrel as a bedside table. The art in the house has been collected over the years at local and overseas auctions. Many of the textile pieces such as the throws and pillows throughout are custom-made and from Poet’s Ode, which will continue as an online store.
