Relax into summer This month we celebrate the wonderful places and resources that continue to inspire us, from favourite collections chosen by antiques dealers and designers, to five of the best virtual tours of museums and galleries around the world. As well as showcasing four elegant homes exuding unique charm, we take a detailed look at the key styles of the Georgian era and discover the people and places that sparked this quintessentially British design period. We delve into one of Spode’s most iconic patterns, and we head out into the garden to dine al fresco in the most stylish and decadent way possible.
