House Call: Whitecross Farm

Sally and Mark Bailey, the proprietors of Baileys Home & Garden in the UK, espouse a simple philosophy: "Repair, reuse, rethink." They applied these principles to Whitecross Farm, their home in on tiny village of Ross on Wye in Herefordshire. "One of our favorite things is to reuse unloved bits and pieces (small or large) that we find on our travels, and give them a new lease of life. It's our version of recycling. Abandoned bobbins from old textile mills turn up on our shelves as egg timers, lamp bases, or string holders; scraps of floorboard become mirror frames, tables, or even kitchen units."
