From the hot colours and tropical motifs of our decorating pages (p70) to our stylist’s notebook inspired by that garden favourite lavender (p15), there are plenty of ideas to bring the outside in.
Our selection of homes and gardens have all been chosen for the covetable lifestyle they offer their owners, from the beautiful cottage garden belonging to gardener-turned-florist Caroline Oleron (p22) to the dramatic contemporary exterior landscaping of a 17th-century manor house in East Sussex, which cleverly blends with the surrounding countryside (p59).
We’ve also got ideas to update children’s bedrooms (p20), our pick of the best and most luxurious roll-top baths (p87), DIY craft ideas (p78), the latest flooring updates (p91) and the story of a kitchen project that has provided the finishing touch to the restoration of a 1750s farmhouse (p82). Last but by no means least, don’t forget to enter our prize draws – we have two mini breaks up for grabs in Oxford and the beautiful Pembrokeshire countryside. Good luck!
