Every season has its own unique beauty, but spring is the most glorious of all. As winter’s bleakness finally surrenders to the sun, and flora and fauna begin to reawaken, I too am renewed with a fresh sense of optimism and desire to experience new things. This month, I can’t wait to try my hand at the stunning wreath project on our front cover, created exclusively for Period Living by the super-talented Emma Hutchinson of The Bespoke Flower Company (page 86). It’s the perfect piece to welcome friends and family to an Easter celebration. To further get into the spirit of the season, this month we reveal how to choose and grow crops for your own vegetable garden (page 142). You simply can’t beat the flavour – and satisfaction – of…

Talent spot While the gardeners prepare to sow their seeds, textile artist Rachel Nettles, of Cabbages & Nettles, has been busy sewing her vegetables all year round. From carrots to cabbages, her lifelike sculptures appear good enough to eat, but look closely and you’ll trace a delicate network of embroidery, down to hand-stitched soil around the roots.

eye on design

What was the Bauhaus philosophy and what appeals to you about the movement? The lead principle of Bauhaus is that ‘form follows function’, which draws upon the understanding of basic design concepts, from composition to colour theory and technique.

How is Heal’s marking the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus? Our former chairman, Sir Ambrose Heal, was a true champion of the movement when it first emerged, giving…
