THE LIVING INFLUENCER
Red’s best home buys this month
TO DINE FOR
Anthropologie’s team-up with award-winning designer Bethan Gray brings a beautiful range of furniture to the high street. To sit in these velvet dining chairs is to be enveloped, chicly.
TOP OF THE MORNING
The quest for perfect porridge continues. My current favourite includes a dash of this sweet and fragrant rose cordial stirred into oats and coconut milk, with pistachios added on top. £9.99 for 250ml,
SITE FOR SORE EYES
Ah, the joys of shopping online for vintage pieces. It seems to be either an overwhelmingly vast mixed bag (hi, Ebay) or wishlist-worthy prices only (1stdibs.co.uk). Step forward, new site Selency, which hosts an edited range of antique and design classic sellers, but validates each listing and regulates the delivery. I’m currently bookmarking several Art Deco pieces.
A TREE IS FOR LIFE…
The most anticipated hotel launch ever has finally happened
(I ran the exclusive on Heckfield Place in Red ’s April 2013 issue as delays began…). In the Hampshire countryside, it’s bucolic, grand and I’m particularly inspired by the indoor trees. It’s a statement that moves the house plant trend one step further. Tree ferns, parlour palms and olive trees, as seen here, all thrive inside.
