Beauty + Utility: Rustic Storage at Baileys Home and Garden

Issue 35 · The Organized Life · September 3, 2014

Mark and Sally Bailey were early to the game with their “repair, reuse, and rethink” design philosophy (we've posted about their housewares emporium Baileys Home & Garden frequently over the years). The couple has written three books: Recycled Home, Simple Home, and Hand Made Home, and converted a series of farm buildings in the Hereford countryside of England into a destination compound for interiors enthusiasts in search of an honest utilitarian aesthetic. They're constantly innovating and updating their offerings; take a tour of the latest developments.

Above: The Baileys often create modular shelving systems with American Crates on Wheels, which are larger in scale than standard crates. Placing them on wheels means they're easily transportable.

On Gardenista, an indoor garden in Steal This Look: A Sunny Work Studio (Fiddle Leaf Included) is inspiring us all to get back to work.

Baileys Home and Garden is in Hereford, near Wales and about a 3 1/2 hour train journey from Central London.
