Can you solve our July ‘Room with a Clue’ puzzle?
Each month, we show you a room from a house of significance and ask you to work out either what the house is or who lived there. There’s a prize up for grabs, so see if you can solve the riddle...
A life in colour
It was in 1883 that a prominent artistic figure first made this French country house their beloved home, adapting it over the following decades to fulfil their great professional and familial needs. The house was enlarged to accommodate a substantial family, and a barn next door converted into a studio, although this isn’t where our homeowner is known for creating their influential works. The bright interiors reveal a passion for colour, although it’s what lies through the window that really gives the game away as to who lived here.
If you think you know this month’s home you could be in with a chance of winning this Red Gingham Blooming Good Tea half-pint mug, worth £19.95, from queen of ceramics Emma Bridgewater. Based in the heart of the potteries in Stoke-on- Trent, Emma’s factory has been making your everyday cup of tea just that little bit more special since 1985.
