From a 17th-century farmhouse in Dorset to a former Turkish bath house in Hastings, this month’s homes reflect their owners’ passions and tastes in wonderfully creative ways. With warmer evenings on the horizon and the hope that we can continue to hold small gatherings outside we take tips for stylish entertaining al fresco from Selina Lake and reveal gorgeous setting ideas for your get togethers. We take a look behind the brand at Burleigh Pottery which is celebrating its remarkable 170th anniversary this year, consider the curiously compelling world of dummy boards, embrace the exuberance of Swedish rya rugs and take a trip to Ludlow. Meanwhile our columnist Willa Latham focuses on Chelsea porcelain and explores how its founder helped to shape British ceramics.
