Julia's Place

Julia Bird

The house is an eighteenth century farmhouse tucked away on the edge of the moor, a few miles away from the sea and the beautiful port of Fowey. The house is surrounded by 10 acres of land, edged by the ancient granite walls which border onto a nature reserve where wildlife abounds. It is here that Julia Bird feels submerged into the nature that inspires my work. Throughout the seasons there is always rich and beautiful colour, pattern and fresh produce for decoration and the kitchen.

Julia Bird’s work is as a stylist and  is of course very visual and mood boards are an essential part of the process. Images are grouped together throughout the house. The guest bedroom upstairs features a large frame covered with fern printed hessian, which becomes the background for more plant images. The walls in my office awaiting redecoration are hung with foam art boards which are constantly edited as my inspiration swings from season to season.

The sitting room; Two rooms were converted into one, and tall French windows were added on all the ground floor rooms to introduce light and open up the house to the outdoors.
