  • The Cornish artist giving timeworn driftwood a new life
  • An eclectic mix of homes, from a 17th-century cottage to an architect’s new-build packed with retro finds

The weather is telling us that summer has arrived and with it comes H&A’s August issue, bursting with tropical patterns and punchy colours to get your home sizzling for summer.

From statement cushions and mismatched brights to palm-print wallpaper, we show you how to bring a little piece of paradise into your home.
