The Summer Issue: A July/August 2018 PreviewCatching the Light
In classic fairy-tale fashion, a designer’s touch awakens a long-neglected property, restoring warmth and beauty to its storybook cottage and coaxing a barren landscape to blossom as never before.

  1. I was thrilled to see this issue in my mailbox and took to reading through it almost immediately while sipping tea on my terrace. Perfect weather coupled with frequent visits from friendly Chipmunks made for a great afternoon of reading – and daydreaming….

    This new issue is quite lovely and offers a wide array of different written and photographic features to suit every Victoria fan – Home decor, travel, food, entertaining, and gardens are all represented in this wonderful Victoria issue !

    My favourites include: Siren Song of the Sea (Favourite Things), Catching the Light, The Softer Side of Summer, The Allure of the Cottage Garden, and Cast in Stone. There are others as well, but these in particular really ‘spoke’ to my imagination and design sense.

    Brava Victoria for publishing another real winner with the new July/August 2018 issue !

    (Anxiously awaiting what is in store for us with the September British issue (my favourite !))

    God bless !

  2. I started to buy Victoria in 1993 and then got it by post for the years up to now-28 years! I always have issues next to my chair whereI have my quite moments. In fact, I paged through September 1998 yesterday and showed much husband the picture on page 38. This is a favourite of mine. I copied the idea of the vase with feathers in my house by the sea. Victoria took me through my years as young house wife dreaming about my house. I am retiring next year and will as elderly also sit with my cup of tea and a Victoria. This time just remembering. Thank you.

  3. I LOVE all the beautiful Victorian issues! I do think the cover for the Summer issue should have been the outside table in Provence that is in one of the feature stories instead of food. I associate Summer with the great outdoors.
    Keep up these lovely magazine issues – we so need beauty now!
