Pretty Country House


It really is such a treat being able to work in beautiful houses.  I am currently working on a house out in the country which has a big fabulous barn, horses and very pretty gardens.  It is an old white Queenslander and it really is something very special.  I love it so much I had to share it.  Here's a little snapshot of the front garden.  I've also posted a few photos below of the beautiful sofas, cushions and rug we delivered there this week.  Next on the agenda is a custom built-in bookcase which will cover an entire wall floor to ceiling.  I have also been asked to find a beautiful Antique dining table and chairs and the best part of all is that the clients are so kind and so easily pleased.  They love everything I show them which makes my job so easy and at the end of the day I think it makes the look so much more beautiful too...

Anna, you are truly gifted. Those blue stripe sofas are incredibly chic; I've never seen sofas like them before. Perfect cushioning, too.

I love the fabric. Is that a dhurrie or a denim stripe?
Tell me more. It looks modern yet a tad bit rustic.

Question... that artwork with the horse.. something you sourced?? Looks perfect for the spot, nicely complimented by the little iron sculpture as well!

Absolutely fabulous! What can you tell us about that great area rug underneath the striped sofas? Is that seagrass or something else? thanks so much,

What a dream home, inside and out. One could live snug as a bug in it ... or outside of it!
