Parent & Child interviews

Rose 9, Daisy 8 years old – Exmoor (Somerset), UK

June 3, 2012

Rose is full of life. She loves animals especially horses. Daisy is a ray of sunshine, happiest on the rope swing outside her dad’s workshop, singing just for the sake of it. The two girls and their older sister live in a timber framed house built by their parents, Karina and Rob Heard. Have a look at the girl’s beds…dreamy. Rob also creates amazing Bough House sculptures, inspired by the rolling countryside surrounding his home. Karina works for her husband.

Your favourite children’s brands Boden, Joules and anything French or Scandinavian.

What do you buy online? Most things. Living where we do means a long journey to the nearest city.

A website that inspires you Gudrun Sjoden. She bases each seasons work on a trip to a different part of the world. It’s so colourful. I wish she would do childrens clothes!

Last item you added to your child’s wardrobe An angora cardigan by Noa Noa that I found in a charity shop! It was a bargain.

Most precious item you bought for your child There’s just something about their first socks…they’re sooo tiny!!

Best gift you gave for a child’s B-day My eldest daughter, Lily 11, is really into Rennie Macintosh. This year I surprised her with a trip to The Glasgow School of Art. She wants to study there when she’s older

Items that are hard to find Good quality, simple cotton clothes for girls that aren’t pink!!

Favourite pieces in your child’s wardrobe Often things that they have all worn at sometime. I have the first pair of red wellingtons that my son had when he was little. He’s 21 now and all the girls have worn them too. They will always sit on the boot rack.

The book on your bedside table  ‘I Capture the Castle’- Dodie Smith, ‘The Shipping News’- E. Annie Proulx.

The music in your ipod When I got my ipod I gave it to each of my friends and asked them to put a couple of their favourite tracks on it. I put it on shuffle and try to guess who’s who.

A film that you saw recently and that staid with you? The Woman in Black. Robert and I saw the stage show years ago and wanted to see how they filmed it. It’s really scarey!!

The film that you love to see with the whole family?  Usually Harry Potter

An unforgettable place you’ve travelled to I hate the cold but I have to say that my trip to Orkney was just amazing.

The ideal place for a family summer holiday Well the girls have made Hawaii sound just lovely!!
