Plenty of space
The Richardsons bought their home five years ago – they wanted to be closer to the kids' schools and they were after an older home that had plenty of space for entertaining.
“We used to live in a security estate and desperately wanted something with character,” Bridget explains.
When they found this house, she and Bruce fell in love with its architectural detail, arched doorways, high ceilings, Oregon pine floors and, of course, the corrugated-iron cottage from which Bridget and her two assistants run the business. A print of the world map in the dining area was designed and created by Love Letters Stationery. “When we’re stuck for what to make for dinner, we pick a country on the map and find a recipe for a classic dish that originates there,” Bridget says.
