The model and beauty influencer takes us for a tour of her elegant Georgian home
Ruth Crilly bought her Somerset country house in 2017, after having been understandably won over by its elegant classic Georgian architecture. While its previous owners had painstakingly renovated it, reproducing original cornicing and restoring shutters and doors, it lacked the warmth that the writer, model and beauty guru wanted for her family home. The white and grey shades that looked so chic in the pictures felt a little cold in reality, so the next few years have been spent redecorated to give it the vitality and cosiness she wanted.
"We bought our home because it looked like something from Pride and Prejudice and I had a mental image of myself swanning about reading romantic novels in window seats, which hasn’t happened yet," Crillo laughs. "It’s rambling and old, but it has a welcoming, happy vibe."
