Things I’ve seen, done and loved this month

Country Homes & Interiors - - LETTER FROM THE EDITOR - Vanessa x

As a ram­bler whose favourite walks of all time are in Scot­land, this is­sue makes me want to pull on my walk­ing boots and head north! Be in­spired by Emily and Hal Salvesen’s farm­house and its dra­matic and creative in­te­rior, lo­cated on the edge of the Cairn­gorms Na­tional Park (page 30), and fall in love with the Wards’ idyl­lic East Loth­ian cot­tage with its mod­ern, rough-luxe aes­thetic (page 52). Turn to page 76 to see our ideas for us­ing tar­tans, tweeds and quirky game bird pat­terns to give your home a fresh spin on tra­di­tional High­land style, and delve into the fas­ci­nat­ing life of Perthshire-based fab­ric de­signer Lady Caro­line Inchyra on page 94. Fi­nally, don’t miss our in­ter­view with Joanna Nor­man, lead cu­ra­tor at the new V&A gallery in Dundee, who evoca­tively de­scribes her love of the trip across the Forth Bridge, on page 178. If you spot some­thing in th­ese pages that you’d love to buy for your home, it couldn’t be eas­ier to treat your­self. Down­load the Own­able app, then search for Coun­try Homes & In­te­ri­ors and shop in­stantly for what­ever catches your eye!
