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…

sail the mediterranean with victoria hislop

Victoria Hislop’s gripping novel, The Island, has inspired thousands of fans to visit the deserted Greek island of Spinalonga, just off the coast of Crete. It’s a magical part of the world and there’s no better way to see it than on this exclusive cruise with the author herself. Departing in spring 2019, you’ll sail around Sicily and see the ancient temples at Segesta, as well as the charming town of Taormina and the palaces of Palermo, with our award-winning travel partner, Voyages to Antiquity. You’ll arrive in style at the Grand Harbour of Valletta in Malta before cruising across to Crete and meeting Victoria. She will give an exclusive talk, explaining why she set her epic family saga on Spinalonga, the deserted island that was once a leper colony, and…

bubble domes, finn lough

On the waters of Lough Erne, in Northern Ireland, you’ll find newly redeveloped Finn Lough (formerly Fermanagh Lakeland Lodges), run by siblings Michael and Gillian Beare. CHOOSE YOUR ROOM There are a variety of accommodation options to choose from, such as waterside cottages and catered suites, but we love the bubble domes with 180° transparent walls. The private dome area is tucked away in woodland at the edge of the peninsula, accessible through a locked gate, with each dome positioned for complete privacy. BUBBLE BEAUTY Both standard and premium bubble domes sleep two (and are adult only!), featuring four-poster handcrafted beds, rain showers, Nespresso machines and individually controlled heating systems. Guests staying in the premium option will also enjoy the extra space of interconnected domes, a freestanding stone-cast bath and vinyl record…

PROJECT PROFILE Owners Elizabeth and William Berrill, who live here along with their teenage children, Harry, Alice and Emily, plus their two Miniature Schnauzers, Maple and Truffle. House A six-bedroom Edwardian detached property in rural Berkshire. Project The existing kitchen-diner and an adjacent room were knocked together to add extra seating, and the over-burdened space was refreshed and redefined. Kitchen size 4.9x9.1m (excluding dining space) Designer Andrew Wartnaby, senior designer, Martin Moore. Cabinetry Martin Moore’s Modernist collection, painted in Bark Grey eggshell, also by Martin Moore. Main island unit in walnut veneer. A large island unit tops many people’s kitchen wish-lists but for Elizabeth and William Berrill the reality didn’t quite live up to the hype. ‘We loved the long, wide island that the previous owners had installed, but it did dominate the kitchen,’ says Elizabeth. When…

happy go lucky style

A HUT OF YOUR OWN A shepherd’s hut is perfect for an easy-going life. Open the door to a place where you can work quietly, read a book or sleep over!
