One of my favorite daydreams is to someday give up big city life and retire to the English Countryside, a dream shared by Paula Sutton, creator of the popular blog The Hill House Diaries… Born and reared in London, the mother of three worked in the fashion industry for years, serving as Head of Press for Elite Premier Model agency (when Supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington were in their heyday) and producing shoots for Elle magazine. But one day Paula decided to take the plunge, and off she moved with her family to the countryside. A lover of traditionally English interiors and designers such as Nancy Lancaster and John Fowler, Paula enjoys finding bargains at auctions, carboot sales, eBay, local flea markets, and antique fairs. She paints and restores many of her treasures to sell at a local decorative antiques emporium in Norfolk. Her blog features interior decoration to suit all budgets, vintage finds, traditional British design and English country house inspiration. Today, we will take a peek inside Paula’s dreamy world via images from her Instagram account (with over 400,000 followers!) @hillhousevintage.
Beautiful, classic, and timeless style! For ongoing inspiration, I highly recommend following @hillhousevintage. Along with lovely images from her home and adventures in the English Countryside, Paula’s sense of humor and delightful disposition will bring joy to your day.
