Anyone who knows me, understands my obsession with all that is anything English country house….and after seeing some of the photos from the weekend house of British fashion designer, Jasper Conran, maybe you will understand. Conran’s country estate, Ven House, in Somerset was recently featured in the November issue of my favorite “decorating porn” magazine, World of Interiors. The conservatory is straight out of a Jane Austen movie set.
According to an article in The Telegraph, Conran’s ideal weekend includes walking his dogs, growing blowsy peonies, browsing through second hand bookshops and buying antiques. He loves to wake up early on a Saturday and listen to BBC Radio 4 while making a cup of tea and a poached egg from one of his Rhode Island Red hens, in this most well appointed English kitchen.
Conran recently published a book of great inspirational photos of English country homes and people called Jasper Conran Country.
