CHRISTOPHER HOWE Designer An antique dealer as well as a decorator and furniture designer (many of the houses we feature are furnished with his pieces), Christopher Howe doesn’t believe in seeking perfection. ‘I’ve spent my whole career watching people trying to create perfect interiors rather than spaces to suit themselves and make them happy.’ While completing a fine art degree at Goldsmiths, Christopher began restoring furniture and frames as a means of earning extra money. This led to him buying pieces that he could restore: ‘Reluctantly, I gave in to the idea of selling them to pay for my daughter, who now works with me 28 years later.’ Christopher decorated the Gloucestershire barn featured from page 102. What type of projects do you enjoy working on? ‘Those that allow me complete freedom in…

Having just got back from a very happy week in North Yorkshire and Dorset, where my phone hardly got a look-in – save for the odd use of it as a camera – a country ‘retreat’ seems almost essential. As Rita Konig points out on page 63 of this issue, living in two places comes with its complications – logistically and administratively – but ‘the payback is waking up to the sound of birds, the open sky and fields’, and for me the joy of not pounding the pavements the moment you open the door. The second home Rita is referring to is an escape from city life, the sort encapsulated by the tiny barn in a meadow decorated by Christopher Howe, from page 102. It is about living the…

When it was announced last year that Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler was leaving 39 Brook Street, its home for over 70 years, there was a collective gasp in the interiors world. But it was a good thing in many ways. ‘As beautiful as Brook Street was, it did not allow us to show how we had moved on, because we were very much locked into decorating a series of eighteenth-century rooms,’ says Philip Hooper, one of the decorators.

Occupying five floors of a late-nineteenth-century red-brick terrace, this has the designers’ offices upstairs above…
