We’ve chosen the house of Anna & Jeff Phillips for this month’s Pick of the Pads.
We wanted something Christmassy and their Sussex home, which is featured in the December edition of Country Living magazine, is just perfect.
It’s homely & warm with quite a Scandi feel – robust and elemental with wood, stone, textiles & flame. The influence of nature is strong, highlighted by the use of seasonal foliage, fruit & flowers.
Antique country furniture fills the house with character. There are lovely decorative touches everywhere you look incorporating handcrafts, vintage pieces & found objects – the fairy lights, candles & Christmas decorations give it a magical look.
There looks to be lovely natural light in the house, but no shortage of cosy corners too.
The bedrooms are inviting & peaceful, the dining area sumptuous – and we just love the handmade kitchen with its reclaimed wooden crates, blocks & shelves.
What a truly wonderful place to spend the festive season.
