A Noble Retreat

Babington House is a stunning relaxed country retreat located in Somerset UK and was recently refurbished by the talented Ilse Crawford.  I could not think of a better place to spend a few days at the moment. 

I think the hardest thing would be choosing which room! 

The bathrooms are all beautiful...

The Lounge...

The Library and its gorgeous chairs and so many more beautiful images to see here.

Lest we forget...

At 2.30AM on the 25th April 1915 the Australian - New Zealand Army Corps landed in Gallipoli, Turkey and suffered the worst military defeat in our history. Today this beautiful poppy field is far from the events of that fateful morning where many young men lost their lives. 

It is here the ANZAC spirit was we remember.

Home Beautiful

I was so excited to get my copy of this Month's Home Beautiful and read the interview with Michelle Adams from Rubie Green.  Her fabrics are stylish and sustainable, if you have not got a copy, you can read the interview by enlarging the picture below.

Simple and beautiful

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I have not posted much this past week due to a huge amount of work I had on.  I am so happy I managed to finish most of it before my daughter started her Easter school break.

This charming white family room  is currently featured on Cote Maison -   large sofa's and armchairs to relax and lovely big windows to bring in lots of light makes this a space I would love being in.
