Remember a few weekends ago when I visited Home Barn? Well, despite winter deciding to come back in full (gail!)force on Monday – the wind was biting and snow was gently falling – I decided to venture back out to Home Barn, this time with my pals Igor and Caroline joining me for the antiques adventure. When you enter Home Barn there’s a real sense of excitement as you have no idea what you are about to find; a feeling only accentuated by the softly falling snow that managed to fall through the gaps in the barn’s roof. The barn itself is of lofty proportions, with wooden beams so wonky they might as well call them The Definition of Character! Swooping drapes accentuate the height and create an almost theatrical feel to the space, within which I discovered an eclectic mix of vintage furniture and accessories across industrial, reclaimed, antique and modern themes. The owners, Sarah and Sally, regularly change up the assortment of products and finds on offer, cleverly weaving modern day trends through the myriad of vintage pieces. This is most notable with the fluro accents seen across both furniture and accessories throughout the barn. I may have left HomeBarn with a cold nose but I was fizzing with creative ideas for my home – have you ever had a magical antiques experience?
