things i’ve seen, done and loved this month

Mmm… early summer! It’s a favourite time of year in my country garden. Strawberries are ripening in pots, elderflower is blooming in the field at the back and lavender is scenting the pathways. It’s an idyllic time; a happy-go-lucky time. Dedicated to this theme, the pages of this magazine bring you daydream looks for the country home and garden. I adore the whimsical designs and contemporary toiles featuring shepherd’s huts, soaring birds and colourful pattern inspired by life on the road, on page 64. Advocates of slow-lane living also feature in our easy-going homes – from a Cornish coastguard’s cottage to a Buckinghamshire clapboard farmhouse – where large doors open onto patios and decks, and spare moments are spent walking the paths of the local landscape. Feeling rooted in the countryside came…

Pretty posy Fill your home with stunning faux hydrangeas this summer. These gorgeous flowers have all the beauty of the real thing, but with the added advantage of lasting forever. The faux Mop Head Hydrangea bunch, £102, is shown with the large Arranmore vase, £22, both from Oka. OUR FAVOURITE RATTAN DESIGNER Soane Britain Lulu Lytle grew up in the English countryside. She studied Egyptology and has had a lifelong love of Middle Eastern design, particularly rattan furniture. In 1997, Lulu and Christopher Hodsoll founded Soane Britain, with designs made in workshops that excel in traditional crafts throughout Britain. Lulu tells us more… How did Soane Britain come about? I wanted to make beautiful furniture and lighting, with a commitment to British manufacturing. I spent a summer travelling around England to find the best craft…

CREATE A BUZZ Did you know that a single lime tree in flower provides the same amount of forage for bees as a 3,000sq m wildflower meadow (that’s half a football pitch)? This, and other fascinating facts about supporting the honeybee, can be found in this beautiful little guide, Planting for Honeybees by Sarah Wyndham Lewis (£12, Quadrille). Q&A WITH A SHARING GARDENER Pick of the scented roses Now’s the time to sink your nose into the roses. We asked one of world’s leading rosarians, Michael Marriott of David Austin Roses, which ones to grow for the best fragrance. How should gardeners go about choosing a rose scent? Smelling roses has the almost magical ability to calm you down and at the same time raise your spirits. Smell different varieties for yourself by visiting a…

We want this now... Evenings can get chilly once the barbecue has burnt out and before the firepit gets going, which is why we love how Chesneys’ new Heat 400, from £2,484, combines the best of both alfresco worlds. Cooking modes include smoking, baking and slow cooking, and it offers a healthier experience than a firepit, as it uses clean-burn tech to reduce harmful emissions. Get grilling and keep cosy all night long. OUR FAVOURITE BIO YOGURT MAKER Mossy’s Original The recipe behind Mossy’s Original has been a family favourite since 1935, passed down to the brand’s owner Amos Smith by the yogurt’s creator, his Auntie Jo. Based in the quaint town of Aldeburgh, on the Suffolk coast, the bio yogurt is still made using the same methods as always and is sold in…

cotswold grey

Once a traditional ironmongery in the historic Cotswold market town of Moreton-in-Marsh, Cotswold Grey is now a chic interiors and lifestyle emporium founded by Simon Jeffrey. Simon combined his passion for travel and interiors when he opened the store in 2014, selling beautiful things from around the world. Here, he tells us more… WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO SET UP YOUR SHOP? I love travelling and I like nothing more than exploring an interesting place and scouring furniture shops, antique and flea markets – I have an obsession with collectables and love to rummage in salvage yards. I also like to visit different hotels in an area to get interior-design inspiration. HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE COTSWOLD GREY STYLE? It’s a mix of unique, unusual and eclectic pieces. The team at Cotswold Grey…
