Description

Perhaps the most charming room in the house is the parlour that won Penelope and Steve over when they first viewed it. The original elm floorboards were in great condition and helped inform the pink and brown colour palette of this room. Property expert Katy Campbell and acclaimed photographer Mark Nicholson offer an insider’s look at the Cotswolds’ most charming and inspirational private homes. Now you can travel with Katie for a design-lover’s tour of sixteen romantic Cotswold homes and their stylish, contemporary interiors. In the drawing room, for example, there are Italian wall lights and Spanish leather topped stools from the nineteenth century alongside eighteenth century French armchairs and a Dutch bleached oak table.

A period spent in Turkey learning how to make kilim designs for her bags yielded some beautiful finds, such as the suzani-style embroidery bought in Istanbul that now covers a side table.

Our latest edition of Impacts, themed ‘reconnect’, explores how real estate is fundamental in helping people and businesses to connect and thrive. With their children grown up and no fixed timetable to follow, the couple split their time between here and their house in Notting Hill. Penelope’s expert eye for colour can be seen in the paint colours throughout the house, many of which she mixed herself, and she also painted all the rooms herself during the Covid lockdowns.

The previous owners, who had lived here for 60 years, replaced a lean-to barn with an extension in the 1970s, so the proportions are quite different from the rest of the house. With their distinctive honey-colored stone walls, set amongst rolling hills and beautiful countryside, the décor of these houses expresses inspirational ideals of English country style that readers will love to explore and emulate.

With the homes' idyllic settings-and a foreword by the Duchess of Marlborough-this collection presents inspirational ideals of English country style certain to fascinate and delight. A fascinating book showcasing a selection of the most attractive homes (large and small) in the Cotswolds.
