This month we’re celebrating 35 years of Country Homes & Interiors. Looking at the first issues, it’s fascinating to see how much our homes have changed. Interior styles seem simpler now and the traditional farmhouse kitchen has morphed into an open-plan space where all of life happens. What remains the same is a deep love of country style, with its connection to nature, uplifting colours, patterns and prints, and lovingly crafted furnishings.

EVERYWHERE I LOOK REMINDS ME OF SOMEWHERE I’VE TRAVELLED OR AN ANTIQUES FAIR I’VE VISITED ❞ You can see right over to France from the top floor,’ exclaims Sophie Rowell about the pretty pastel-coloured terraced building she calls home. It is one in a row of elegant townhouses in the quaint Old Town area of Folkestone. ‘They were originally built to house the captains coming up from the ships in the harbour below,’ she adds. It seems only fitting, therefore, that interior designer Sophie has chosen to furnish it with antique and vintage finds from near and far.
