Ginger Barber

This home belongs to a fantastic Interior Designer, Ginger Barber. I love her take on this home, with all the natural materials...with a bit of shiny! I would love that wicker wing chair as my office chair.
Hints of vintage salvage, classical pieces re done (like the big check chair), all anchored by texture underfoot, create a warm relaxing space that won't date.
A beautifully simple staircase, matched with vintage framed herb prints, and that gorgeous bench seat, set the scene for the rest of her home.
Linen..linen...I love it! It is used in abundance here and matches all of her Architectural finds and Vintage pieces like they are made for each other.
Even the back porch is given a beautiful face lift by adding neutral tones that look inviting against the potted boxwood and topiaries. A welcoming home doesn't get lost in the natural palette. xx

  2. That's ok Chris. I would love to know when you have them for sale. I have been looking for a great ladder to use as a display. I will have to head up your way and visit your stall. I would love you to visit me when I am up and running...which hopefully won't be too long now. Take Care, Ness xx
