SARAH PRICE Landscape designer Soon after earning a degree in fine art, Sarah Price says that she started ‘obsessively reading about plants and gardens. I found gardens and landscapes more inspiring than “white cube” gallery spaces’. She went on to become a gardener at Hampton Court Palace. Her big break came when she won a gold medal at the RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in 2006. She has since gone on to design medal-winning gardens at Chelsea, as well as the 2012 Gardens at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. ‘Designing half a mile of perennial plantings for the gardens there was a creative dream,’ she says. For this issue, she explored the gardens at Nant y Bedd (from page 112), near her home in Abergavenny. Which plant are you obsessed…

We are currently looking at plans to do redo our loft and ringing in my ears, as my husband pushes us to seek planning permission as quickly as possible, is the advice our columnist Rita Konig imparted in her talk at the recent House & Garden Festival: ‘Take time over your plans, sit with them, show them to other people. The longer you spend on the plans, the more exciting the spaces become, and more comfortable.

Even the approach – whether by car down a narrow driveway, or by foot across a meadow – is enchanting. The owners of Petersham, the Boglione family, have now decided to bring the enterprise to the distinctly more urban environment of Covent Garden. ‘Over the past few years, we have done a few pop-ups at places like Dover Street Market, Selfridges and Frieze Art Fair, and I realised how great an appetite there was for Petersham in central London,’ explains Lara Boglione, the…

introducing: the invisible collection

Isabelle Dubern (above left) was thrilled to learn that Pierre Yovanovitch was designing the New York apartment of her friend Anna Zaoui (above right). This finally gave her the chance to get her hands on his iconic ‘Papa Bear’ armchair, which she had been lusting after for years. As with many pieces created by designers for private clients, the chair had never found its way onto the market and there was no way to purchase it save employing Pierre. The conundrum prompted Isabelle and Anna to launch The Invisible Collection – a website selling limited-edition pieces by a carefully curated list of designers. ‘We wanted to assemble a tribe of impeccable talents,’ says Isabelle. So, if you hanker after India Mahdavi’s ‘Shadows’ wall lamp, Jean-Louis Deniot’s ‘Héros’ stool or Erwan…
