against the grain

THE COTTAGE STOOD in a wood in deepest Dorset. It was small, almost dainty. It could have been the setting for a bedtime story, perhaps something involving gingerbread or cloaked wolves. When I pushed open the door, I found myself in a book-lined room. I had the sense that the occupant had just stepped out and would return momentarily. I listened for footsteps, perhaps a voice from the stairs. But the house was still. Birdsong drifted through the open window. On the far wall were black-and-white photographs. They deepened the unreal sense of the place. They showed a young man with piercing eyes in the traditional headdress of the Bedouin of the central Hejaz – an Aladdin, perhaps, in a West Country wood. Now owned by the National Trust, Clouds Hill was…

Right now, a staycation seems like a sure-fire summer hit. From historic destination cities to pretty rural escapes and gorgeous beaches, there is so much to discover without leaving the UK. One simple way of deciding where to explore next – and, crucially, where to sleep – is by signing up for the Marriott Bonvoy travel programme, where members receive exclusive rates and upgrades, and earn points for stays. Over 30 global hotel brands, including The Luxury Collection, EDITION Hotels and Autograph Collection Hotels, are part of the programme, and with more than 100 hotels in the UK, there’s plenty of choice. For instance, there’s the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in Edinburgh, which has castle views and a wow-factor rooftop hydropool; the Martin Brudnizki-designed University Arms, Autograph Collection in Cambridge,…

SHACK UP INN MISSISSIPPI ‘It’s where the best blues musicians perform, and the shacks you stay in are actually those that old blues players used to live in when it was sharecropping time on the plantations. There are festivals every year, King Biscuit, Sunflower Fest and Juke Joint, and people come from all over. If you talk to any of the blues cruisers, they’re going to know exactly where Shack Up Inn is. They’ll also know Red’s Lounge, in Clarksdale, Mississippi, and Morgan Freeman’s restaurant, Ground Zero. This is the home of the blues, for real.’ shackupinn.com THE RUBIN MUSEUM OF ART NEW YORK ‘There’s a room here, I call it the meditation room, but it’s actually a gallery where they keep candles, Buddhas, bells, singing bowls and recordings of monks chanting on repeat. You…

In the trickiest of years, a timely wave of launches has brought fresh aesthetics and hope for new beginnings. Enter the rainbow – known as jewellery’s most pleasing, most uplifting palette – and its undeniable arrival in the watch industry. For many makers this is uncharted territory, as seen at Piaget; interestingly for a house that channels an upbeat vibe, the Limelight Gala Precious Rainbow is the first example of a setting created from a kaleidoscope of tsavorites and sapphires. Breitling is getting into its rainbow stride – following last year’s SuperOcean Heritage ’57 with its multi-coloured indexes, the Chronomat South Sea has easy-breezy tones and a bezel inspired by cocktail hues. Zenith’s offering is more intellectualised, via a collaboration with artist Felipe Pantone. His signature graphic aesthetic and Op…

TAKE IT AWAY Nothing defines travel as an impetuous, romantic yearning quite like a Vespa. Ever since chaperoning Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn in the 1953 film Roman Holiday, it has buzzed stylishly through our cultural psyche – liberty on two wheels – whether steered by Princess Margaret or parka-tailed Mods on Brighton seafront. This year, everyone’s dreaming of an Italian escape – to the villages of Cinque Terre, maybe, or the rampantly baroque Noto in Sicily, pictured. Fashion maisons have been paying homage to their roots – Silvia Fendi to Ponza, Veronica Etro to Naples – while Jacquemus, Michael Kors and Gabriela Hearst have created Riviera-ready looks. As for the scooter, it’s the result of Dior’s collaboration with Vespa, with matching helmet, luggage box and book tote in a chic…

dominique crenn

French-born Crenn was the first female chef in the USA to earn three Michelin stars for her restaurant Atelier Crenn in San Francisco, and is also behind two more of the Bay Area’s most talked-about spots: Bar Crenn and Petit Crenn. Throughout the pandemic, she sent out 2,000 meals a week to help feed homeless people. Here, showing her excitement for California’s forward-thinking gastronomy, Crenn shares her tips on where to eat in the state she calls home. ZUNI CAFE IN SAN FRANCISCO ‘This has always been my ultimate go-to-in the city. It launched about 40 years ago and was the first restaurant I ate at when I came to California in the 1990s. The space is timeless, with interiors that make it look as if it could be in the middle…
