Things I’ve seen, done and loved this month
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.
