Sneak Peek: A Victorian Bristol Home that Mixes Old and New
This sneak peek inside the Bristol, UK home of Greg and Jill Murray comes to us with a little help from Cassandra Linton. Cassandra co-runs the antique furniture and decorative item shop Dig Haushizzle, and she started to notice the fabulous style of her clients’ homes. As for this home, Greg and Jill moved in 9 months ago after they both fell in love with the Victorian features of the high ceilings and original proportions of the house, not to mention the great bars and restaurants nearby. Style-wise it’s a mix of old and new pieces. For years Jill has worked as a fashion buyer in London, with a love of textiles, furniture and homewear. Nearly two years ago she and her brother David decided to go into business together and own a clothing shop called Henry based in Cape Town, South Africa, which sells Danish and British menswear brands. Their next adventure is an interiors shop called House of Henry based in the UK and is due to be up and running in the New Year. If their home is any indication, I can’t wait to see the shop! Many thanks Jill, Cassandra, and photographer photographer Anni Skilton from Annik Media! –Anne Image above: In our dining room the wall is painted in soft black and an old cupboard turned into a drinks cabinet.
