21st century living in an 18th century house. Now that is my kind of luxury. I’m daydreaming about this Georgian-era stone house in the Cotswolds especially the new green oak and glass dining conservatory next to the bespoke kitchen. It’s a marriage of new and old, carefully considered and beautifully curated by interior designer, furniture designer and antiques dealer Charlotte Hughes of Sutton House Interiors. Time for an escape to the country I do believe.
There’s something about that green. Cool, calming, refreshing like a dip in the ocean or a drop in the temperature on a hot, hot day. Add the gold accents, the hint of lucite and pattern repeat of lattice and I find myself scheming a way to include a small garden room in my own home.

This three storey Victorian terrace house in Fulham’s Parsons Green district has been carefully redesigned and redecorated by the Sims Hilditch team to create a feeling of a family home with warmth and character, a city residence full of country charm.
Refined yet rustic. Elegant and extraordinary. Let’s throw in the words luxe, historical revival, desert oasis and South West style. Stone and terracotta tile, timber beams and whitest of white render, lush green gardens and stylish outdoor living. A piece of paradise in Arizona’s Paradise Valley by Scottsdale-based Oz Architects.
Take a traditional style home. Add a liberal dose of colour and pattern. Don’t forget it should be light, bright and lively and definitely have a youthful exuberance. The result? A wonderful family home, bright, fab and fun. Hancock Park house by Jennifer Culp of JC Studio.
