A Legacy of Loveliness: A Welcoming Summer Home

Marigold, one of three family cats, lounges atop a table outside Margot's charming house.

“When we first bought the place, it was all one color—a pinky cream,” Margot recalls. “It was pretty, but I wanted to get out my fan deck of paint colors and have my way with it.” Drawing ideas from her travels, books, and artwork, she chose a palette that better suited her love of color and offered the perfect backdrop for the furnishings and accessories the couple had accumulated separately and together. With few exceptions, Margot painted the trimwork the same shade as the walls, believing it makes rooms appear larger.

  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.
