My last guests left with the husband realising that their weekend away could potentially be expensive for him as his wife turned to me as she left and said, “Thank you Lucy for inspiring me to go home and redecorate my whole house”!
More and more male guests are leaving with the new knowledge that their home is about to be totally redecorated or in some extreme cases, an extension built when they get home! For female guests, they leave armed with a list of interior decoration ideas to implement and projects to complete.
More and more guests, especially female guests, are leaving Huntlands Farm Bed and Breakfast full of motivation to redecorate their house, plan a new kitchen or reupholster or recover their old chair that they started in earnest many years ago but have never got back to.
My passion for interior decoration started when I had to renovate the house and start planning each room. I love putting fabrics and colours together with old furniture finds, whether they be from free cycle, an antique/second hand shop or in some extreme cases, the tip! There is nothing more satisfying than finding something old and possibly unwanted that you know can be renovated and turned back into something useful and possibly cherished.
If you share my love for old furniture and renovation, why not satisfy your craving and come along to one of my beginners’ upholstery classes; the first one is this weekend which should be fun. Next week I’ll put some photos up of student’s work and their progress. It may just stimulate your interior dreams and make them a reality!
