Divine style with Suzie Anderson at Home...

There are moments when you walk into a space, whether it be a home, a retail store or a hotel interior, & you think, this is absolutely divine! Such is the style of Suzie Anderson, owner of the magnificient Hopewood Country House in Bowral, NSW, & home to the gorgeous "French & Country".
When the time came several years ago for Suzie to sell her much loved Blue Mountains retreat, the many pieces that she collected & restored were relocated to the Sudney Antique Centre, where they were featured in a small French flavoured stand. From then, her collections expanded to include a European style, favouring original painted pieces in shades of faded greys, sage greens & white, all of which remain constants in her interior palette today. A more contemporary, masculine balance has evolved in recent years with Belgian accents adding a stronger focus to rustic collections.
From the idyllic setting of her home, the historic Hopewood Estate, French & Country expanded to occupy the old property stables. Through a series of Open days & appointments, customers were invited to enjoy the beautiful ambience of Suzie's interior magic in her Highlands property.
Her love for creating "a home environment...a tribute to all the senses", (which I completely appreciate & endeavour to emulate whether at home, for a client or in retail interiors), is once again evident in her latest decorating emporium, Susie Anderson Home. Again, this divine environment reflects her personal style with unique & wonderful pieces. Enjoy a weekend retreat at this stunning estate & experience it from the moment you arrive...
