The Baileys

Everything in their16th century hillside vicarage near Ross-on-Wye is reclaimed from something – an old factory, a church, a junk shop, an atelier, a fruit farm. Wooden boxes nailed to walls work as bookshelves. School lockers are remade into kitchen cabinets. Bottles become lampstands. And nothing is too polished. Floorboards reclaimed from old houses are roughly painted in off-white. Paint and wallpaper has been steamed off to expose gorgeous shades of sand- and peach-shaded plaster which they have left bare. Decorations consist of old shop signs, giant scissors that once advertised a barber’s, shelf after shelf of garden tools, shoe lasts with antique clothing hanging from it, mannequins with Sally’s collection of ethnic jewellery round their necks. Everything is warm, used, and oozing character. Writer lisa-g@freeuk.com
