I hope you’ve been keeping well and have adjusted successfully to the new normal – this has truly been a time we’ve all had to embrace our creativity, hasn’t it? Here at Homes & Gardens we’ve been thinking a little differently, going virtual to produce this issue, talking to each other via internet connections and watching as our colleagues across the industry find ways to adapt. Out of the difficulty, some amazing ideas have been born and it illustrates the positives that can happen when we’re forced to use the inventive parts of our minds. That is something that comes more naturally to some than others, so to inspire us all we decided to focus this month on homes that belong to brilliant creatives. The actress Anne Hathaway’s holiday cabin on…

I learned to use both the dobby and jacquard looms, and explored the boundaries of what weave can be, using traditional and unconventional yarns and creating structures from three-dimensional textures to draping fabrics for fashion and interiors. Q What inspires your designs? I find a lot of inspiration in nature: the patterns, textures and colour combinations.

a sense of drama

At the foot of the mountains, a chalet of dark wood and stone sits perched on a velvet green lawn. Given its Alpine styling, it wouldn’t look amiss in a Swiss or German fairy tale, but the property is in fact located in southern California. Built in 1906, the architecture is a quixotic combination of traditional Swiss mountain lodge and Californian arts and crafts styles.

Indeed, their choice of interior designer reveals much about their creative instinct – Pamela Shamshiri of Studio Shamshiri was a production designer on films before she moved into interiors and a sense of narrative is key to her work. Pamela was…
