  1. I remember this article from last year and loved some of the key ingredients which I could easily relate to – the silver, the homey colours, the outdoor potting shed, etc…. – all lovely and classic luxuries!

    My home is a mixture of many styles but all have that quintessential English country feel – much like what this article conveys.

    Simple luxury is so endearing and welcoming to all my family, friends, and guests alike.
