Over the coming weeks, I’ll be throwing the French doors open, polishing up the garden furniture and nurturing my little plot back to life. Welcome to the return of indoor/outdoor living!If, like me, you love all that spring has to offer, you won’t fail to be inspired by our pick of stylish houses (from page 53). With their sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows and rooms drenched in warm sunlight, they epitomise the vision of the relaxed and informal lifestyle we all aspire to.On page 136, our very own living well expert, Oliver Heath, extols the health and wellness virtues of biophilia - in other words, how we can better connect to nature…
