Alison had been holidaying in Guernsey for 30 years before she decided to move there and John is a local, what she calls a ‘Guern’. Between them they have six adult children and have created a family home for many more holidays to come.
Their farmhouse, called St Briocq, reflects their combined style, bringing together all the things they love, with an eclectic mix of additional antique, vintage and modern furniture bought from auction houses on the island.
“Guernsey is only 7 miles by 3 miles so there aren’t lots of furniture stores. It’s the auction houses we’ve been to, to build up our home.”
To complement the rustic characterful interior Alison and John have created, the couple have bought several Nigel Tyas Ironwork products.
They chose our Emley wall lights in a natural black finish with fluted white glass shades for use throughout the house.
