Hang on to your heart and soul

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

N your leader (April 5), you ex­tol the time­less­ness of rooms that re­sults from the in­tegrity of their con­tents, which look as fresh and rel­e­vant to­day as when cre­ated. As some­one look­ing for a house in the coun­try that hasn’t had the full ur­ban treat­ment, I’m be­gin­ning to de­spair. Con­cealed ceil­ing lights, bar stools and gran­ite work­tops have ob­so­les­cence built into them. Rather than re­sist­ing be­ing told what to do, de­sign­ers seem to have only one idea and that is to rip out the heart and char­ac­ter of what­ever they get their hands on and leave us with iden­tikit interiors.
