We have created seven different rooms (including a bathroom) that effortlessly exude mid-century style, from collectable kitchenalia to classic furniture, on page 44. My jaw dropped when I saw the first shots of Ed Ray’s sumptuous art deco apartment on the St Leonards-on-Sea shore. It, too, is filled with antiques he makes use of every day. Turn to page 82 to see gold mirrors against sublime teal walls, indulgent cocktail…

BOWIE BOLT This lamp, painted by homeowner Chloe Jonason, makes me wish I shared her artistic skills! A 50s ICON Eagle-eyed ceramics fans will have spotted the stack of Ridgway Potteries Homemaker plates on our cover. HAMMER HIGHLIGHT I just love the shimmer on this William De Morgan bowl.

Beads of Blue John Your magazine never lets me down on interesting things, and I’m so glad you included an article on Blue John in your May issue. As a pearl threader, I was once sent a spectacular row of Blue John 30mm beads to thread. They alternated with the dull yellow-colour beads, also Blue John.
