Turning a Dream into Reality
We create, garden, draw, design, sew, refinish furniture, write, bake, and . . . We're always dreaming up something new.
The Potterton Hill team has a combined 40+ years experience in interior decorating and design, gardening, and culinary arts, and we have taken that experience, and our united talents, to create a place and lifestyle we love.
Our holiday enthusiast goes a bit crazy decorating, and we delight in every seasonal transformation. We enjoying tilling the garden soil as much as we like experimenting in the kitchen and shopping antique markets. Our blog is a place where we unleash all of our creativity. We hope you enjoy the time you spend within these pages, and if you're a travel enthusiast, we hope you drop us a note and share your travel experience for a chance to be featured at the blog.
Like any great novel, there is always the beginning of a story that draws readers into the imaginary world created by its author. Once upon a time, an award-winning author and baker, along with her super-talented interior designer mother, decided to spend more time pursuing creative endeavors and look beyond the long-time corporate businesses they'd built.
Born from their love of gardening, baking, design, and home keeping, Potterton Hill offers an eclectic array of lifestyle posts, decorating and staging tips, recipes, and products.
Every story evolves over time, with each chapter expanding on the one before. We welcome you to join us on our creative journeys and Potterton Hill adventures.
