Now and again we love to feature country homes around the world, in particular when we come across them via instagram. Here at My French Country Home I have my own routine, my colour palette, my seasonal preferences, but I think its fascinating to see how that plays out around the world in other country homes.
Today I am happy to feature the beautiful world of Harriet who lives in Herefordshire in England and publishes her pictures on the instagram page called @yomargey. On her IG profile she very endearingly describes herself as : “Recalcitrant wife : mother of my four children : instagran : failed gardener : professional loafer”.
Harriet and I have never met – not yet at least – but we have chatted on the phone and I am very happy indeed to introduce my readers to this talented and gentle girl, who knows how to recognise beauty in her everyday life, and that is a quality I will always relate to. I hope you enjoy my interview with Harriet.
I studied history of art at university and I’m sure that helps with composition in my pictures. I also used to develop and print the photos from my old SLR camera, so I have always been interested in photography.
Was the greenhouse original with the house? What are you growing in your greenhouse right now -or- what are you using it for?
I’ve always enjoyed doing flatlays and arranging things appeals to my love of order I think. I only recently discovered the art of knolling, and I’m a big fan! It seems to have struck a chord in people and I often get tagged in their knolling pictures which I enjoy sharing in my stories.
What do you enjoy growing in your garden?
I love growing vegetables, they always taste so much better don’t they. A wide range of salads, tomatoes, courgettes, beetroot and some soft fruit.
What is your favourite season at home?
I actually love all the seasons, it would be so dull if it was sunny every day! Having said that I am and always will
be a Spring girl!
Thank you Harriet for sharing your home with us.
