Last summer we ‘sat spiritually’ upon a swing in a field in Gloucestershire and pondered the decorating features we would bring to you this summer. I loved rocking gently in the dappled light under the branches and I thought about cool indigo blues that felt shady and stylish. We took photographs of the swing seat, a fabulous design by Sitting Spiritually, and created our beautiful June issue cover (out now!).
We shot the rest of the decorating feature earlier this year mixing beautiful floral fabrics from Ralph Lauren and Jane Churchill at Colefax and Fowler and teamed it with blue glass and bed linens in relaxed ticking stripes. We hope you like the feature as much as we do. Take a look p.58-65, June issue.
