Newby Hall


Today we visited Newby Hall. Daniel Hornsey who own Hornseys in Ripon a lovely gallery who have been selling my work for some time, recently (well I guess it's a couple of years now) started running the Shop at Newby Hall and now sells a wide selection of beautiful design led goods. We didn't visit the house itself (the gorgeous print above is by Ed Kluz) but the shop, garden and tea on the lawn was inspiration enough.


It was nice to see my lamps nestled in amongst friends. See the Lush design cushions and the Angie Lewin cards, all folk I sell at Radiance.

The gardens were lovely and peaceful and I'm glad I had my camera to capture the gorgeous colours.

I couldn't quite believe the colour and cuteness of these maple seeds.

The ferns were just beginning to unfurl.

The wild garlic was just beginning to flower.

Anyone know what this is. It was growing by the ponds (quite zoomed in here).

He is a fine fellow isn't he! He was noisy though!

This would be a lovely place to visit with young kids. They have sandpits and a lovely play area, lawns to run on and a little train that takes you round the gardens.

Dan reckons I should design a lamp especially for Newby Hall based on all the wondrous plants in the gardens. Sounds like a plan!

I used to go to Newby Hall when I was much younger - I remember rowing around the lake... or was it a moat?? Can't quite remember! x
