Old Meets New in a Magnificent 18th Century House

Do you dream of moving to the countryside? Or perhaps you already lead a rural life? I often fantasise about exchanging our townhouse for a rambling country home. I have a vision of muddy walks, rosy cheeked roasts in country pubs and long breakfasts with tea, jam and toast (do you get the sense I'm getting carried away?! Tell me country friends is it like this, tell me it is?!). This is probably why I came over all giddy when I stumbled across Yeabridge house in Somerset, South West England in the photography portfolio of Benjamin Edwards. Dating back to the 18th century, Yeabridge house is blessed with high ceilings, open fires and a winding staircase which leads up to a galleried landing and eight bedrooms. The house is owned by Mark Homewood who has created a fascinating, eclectic home where beautiful vintage and antique finds sit beside eye-catching contemporary design pieces. All in all, one fabulous house! Enjoy the tour!

Isn't this space wonderful? Could you imagine living here?!

Just in case we're not ready to up sticks or a country pile is slightly out of our reach (right now at least), we can still steal a few ideas.....

Here's my pick: kitchen - this mobile is similar, vintage chopping boards. workspace - vintage metal chairs. sitting room 1 - Yellow eames chair. sitting room 2 - Beni ourain rug, rattan chair. Combine an IKEA sofa with BEMZ urban loose fit cover for a similar look, Knoll Plantner coffee table. Zuo table. Bedroom - I like this sunburst mirror.

I love the way this home has been captured by Benjamin Edwards. I've been a big fan of his interior photography since receiving a copy of the beautiful book: Urban Pioneer: Interiors inspired by industrial design. There are so many beautiful homes in his portfolio too - take a peek here.

Oh and Yeabridge house is available for photo shoots (oh yasss!). For more information contact: markhomewood@me.com.

Have a lovely day!

  1. Gorgeous! I love the old stone floors. We're ex-city folk now in the countryside. The downsides are all the driving needed and waiting for hours in town while the kids do their activities. Not always peaceful as we all have large gardens here so often lots of ride on mowers, strimmers and chainsaws on the go! Nevertheless still quieter than town and if you enjoy gardening, walking and bird watching there's plenty of that. Amanda

  2. Our family lives in a downtown area but are slowly giving it a country feel. We have chickens and a garden that keeps us in flowers and vegetables all spring and summer. A lemon and fig tree give us fruit. It’s our tiny little urban homestead.
