Kate Freud – The inside story

Barnes of Ashburton make the bathrooms of dreams…

If money were no object in the new house and I hadn’t headed up to a North London trade outlet to choose my bathrooms, I would have headed to Barnes of Ashburton, whose hand-craft range of bespoke designed furniture for bathrooms has my name written all over it. They also design kitchens, and furniture for other areas in the house, but their lovingly made pieces for bathrooms, put together in a Devon workshop, are particularly gorgeous. Many pieces are made from limewood and hand-painted with a distressed finish using paint from Farrow & Ball, for that lived in but luxurious look. And this is why I keep playing the lottery!
