What to expect from our August 2019 issue!

Bright, airy and stylish – these are the words that sum up our four distinctive homes this month, from a Victorian terrace to a former sea captain’s cottage. Make the most of your outdoor space with 10 impressive ideas for creating the garden sanctuary of dreams, whether that’s for work, relaxation or a fabulous extra space for guests. We meet the designers turning waste into striking homewares, and look back at the rich past of the baked-earth-hued material that has inspired artists and craftspeople for many centuries – terracotta. We also cross the Channel for a long weekend in historic Guernsey, and our columnist Jay Blades chats to us about his first forays into furniture restoration – a bug that has gripped him from day one.
