& Over the past months, the H&G team has been working on the 2021 Design Awards. Every year our panel of esteemed judges whittles down thousands of entries to come up with the ultimate edit of people, products and projects (see the winners on p79). What the selection underlines to me is that living in beautiful surroundings is about more than just aesthetics – it can boost wellbeing, too. I see this as the art of luxury today – we now look for spaces that nurture and nourish us as much as we look for glamour.

To celebrate its 75th year, Farrow & Ball has joined forces with Liberty to create a stunningly curated collection of 15 paint colours from the firm’s archive of 114 much-loved hues. We caught up with Joa Studholme, Farrow & Ball’s colour curator, to find out more. How would you best describe the overall look and feel of the collection? The combinations are irresistible! From the edgier but complex tones of Pantalon and Chemise to the simple appeal of Archive and Clunch, these 15 colours might have their roots in the past but they are perfect for the contemporary home and, like the fabrics they complement, feel both exciting and dependable. Can you explain the creative process when collaborating? It was natural – Genevieve Bennett from Liberty and I worked closely together mulling…
