After 10 years of living in London, I had decided that I wanted to move to the countryside, get a dog and start a new adventure. Then, about five years ago, the ideal opportunity arose! I bought a 200 year old cottage, in need of a full renovation, in a pretty little village in rural Bedfordshire. When it came to creating the perfect interior to compliment the age of the property, I found everything a little too chintzy, “country cottage” and dated for me. So this sparked the idea of Plum & Ashby! I thought if I’m searching for these types of interiors, then others must be too!
A contemporary take on the traditional general store with a modern country look in a timeless style and quality products with lots of attention paid to detail.
I can spend hours wandering around antique shops and fairs, I’m always so fascinated about the history and I often find bits that make me nostalgic about my own childhood memories. So it is usually a mix of vintage inspired items and things I find in antique fairs!
Bertie likes to comes everywhere with me and has become a star in front of the camera as well as turning up at all the important meetings! He is quite used to all the attention and can’t bear to be left out of any Plum & Ashby projects!
Our knitted Bertie cushion that is exclusively created for us by expert knitters in Devon. I think it’s a really special piece!
I love to get outside and walk Bertie! I also love cooking!
It has got to be a facial. After staring at a computer screen all day it’s lovely to have a facial and feel relaxed!
Bertie! Food. Books.
I’m taking time out to take sailing lessons!
