Hello there! How are you all? Whether you celebrated Easter or not, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I took a few days off to visit my family in the Cotswolds and it was total bliss! We took a long walk across seemingly endless fields, through damp woods and up steep hillside paths before enjoying lunch in a country pub, complete with a roaring fire. It felt great to spend a few days out of the city to recharge the batteries. Going home always reminds me how much joy I get from country pursuits: long walks, helping to look after the chickens and baking with my mum in the kitchen. These past few days left me inspired to find some organic, wooden home accessories, so I pulled together a handful of pieces from three top notch stores. I love those wooden dipped bread boards because they are the perfect marriage of organic material and colourful accents. What’s been inspiring you lately, friends?

  1. it's quite magical! i doesn't seem that places like this actually exist. it looks like the images from a fable.

  2. Those pictures look too good to be true! I visited my mama's house in the Virginia countryside today and was so happy just to see endless green grass and fields with cows in them… I think we need those escapes from time to time, don't you?

  3. Beautiful photos, Will! You've already made me put the Cotswolds down on my list of places to visit. Your Easter weekend sounds like a bliss … I love the baking part 😉

  4. it looks exquisite out there, i would love to see it. do you run into jeanette winterson?

    the sussex weald is glorious this morning but we were deep in rain all weekend, not a walk for us! though we are tending hens, such a delight. x

  5. Grt post. Glad you had a nice weekend in such a perfect spot. #proudtoliveintheuk Happy belated Easter:)

  6. Happiest week I've ever spent was at Well Farm outside Painswick with my husband and daughter. Like living in a beautiful dream!

  7. I was fortunate enough to visit the Cotswolds and fell in love with the English country-side. I wish I could live there or at least go back.

  8. I wish I could live there. Sometimes I have dreams about such a house and horses and the sceneries and all this air and beauty… how do you think, can dreams come true?…

  9. Oh Will this reminds me going back home to Czech so much! Long walks in the woods, helping in the kitchen..a complete bliss. Happy you had a great time, xoxo

  10. You, see, I'm from Brasil, so Cotswolds sounds like a dream with its beautiful cottages and endless fields.
    I must say you're such a lucky guy, but I guess you already know that.
    Warm hugs from Brasil.

  11. Love Snowshill ! One of my favourite Cotswolds village ! Lovely pictures.

  12. Oooh, the Cotswolds! I spent a long weekend traipsing around the area during a summer trip to London. So, so lovely!
