I love this time of the year. Nothing beats throwing open the patio doors and using the garden as an extension of my home. To celebrate the best that summer has to offer we’ve dedicated this issue to outdoor living – and the good news is there has never been a better choice of furniture and accessories for owners of period homes – top of my shopping list this month is a set of all-weather rattan armchairs. 

We’ve also selected gorgeous garden seating and beautiful baskets and hampers for those days when you want to enjoy a picnic in the great outdoors .

Our real homes have all been chosen for their glorious gardens and the outdoor lifestyle they offer their owners, from a country house in Wales with a stunning terrace covered with clematis  to a French manor in Perigord that the owner runs as a B&B.

To continue with the outdoor theme, we also have an extract from a beautiful book called The New Homesteader, in which Bella and Nick Ivins share the simple pleasures of living the good life with a lesson in the joys of beekeeping . However you choose to enjoy the summer, do it in wonderful style.
