Let’s Brighten Things Up!
While our homes are the places the majority of us are spending most of our time at the moment, the need for them to be uplifting and inspiring places is more important than ever. In this issue we reveal five colour palettes that will create the right mood for your furniture and collections, we also show you 10 brilliant ways to shop for antiques from your living room, and explore four houses that we’re sure you’ll find as charming and restful as we do. Plus, Selina Lake takes us through four simple ways to style summer flowers to bring a little bit of the glorious outside in.
