Elle Decoration Country

Welcome

LEADER OF THE REVOLUTION • Visionary architect Richard Parr is at the forefront of a movement to change the architectural landscape of rural Britain, one quietly rebellious project at a time

CASTLE ON THE HILL • With so many designs inspired by beasts and botanicals, it’s fitting that interiors and lifestyle brand House of Hackney has pulled up its urban roots for a fresh start in the Cornish countryside

(EXTREMELY) REMOTE WORKING • Everybody has their own strategy for making a success of working away from the office – whether it’s redecorating the spare room as a study, taking regular walks outdoors, or finding a new rhythm. Others have adopted a more inspired approach. Here, we meet three people who’ve transformed the concept of WFH by creating unique retreats

VICTORIAN REVIVAL • Renovating a 142-year-old seaside mansion was always going to be a grand undertaking, but interior designer Scarlett Gowing’s passion and perseverance has paid off

5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE YOU RENOVATE • Project completed, Scarlett shares the pointers that made it all possible

CULINARY PILGRIMAGES • Situated in some of the world’s most remote beauty spots, these destination restaurants reward only the most intrepid explorers

STYLE • Building a brutalist dream home on Mexico’s Baja California Sur coastline has ensured one family can enjoy the beach all year round

HOME ON THE RANGE • This farmhouse-turned-family home boasts a sustainable ethos and panoramic views across the wilder side of Australia’s Byron Bay

Ripple effect • Staring at the glistening horizon from their beachfront home has proved inspirational for Canadian design duo George Yabu and Glenn Pushelberg

THE NEVER-ENDING STORY • Completion of this Australian new build with an ocean view is just the start for its owners, who have big plans to rejuvenate the surrounding bushland

The edit Coastal • Capture the beauty of the beach with sculptural wood and stone pieces in a pared-back colour palette

THE SECRET GARDEN • Disguised behind a brick wall on a vast country estate in Devon, this eco-efficient home is at one with its bucolic surroundings

Out of this earth • Built respectfully into the landscape using only soil and stone, this architect’s retreat in South Africa is a remarkable experiment in sustainable design

CONNOISSEUR COUNTRY • Surrounded by Tuscan vineyards, this holiday home offers a luxurious new take on tradition for those with discerning tastes

Step into the slow lane • The perfect place to rest and recharge, this calming cottage on a sleepy island in New York State focuses on life’s simple pleasures

The edit Rural • Artisanal designs in natural materials create a more refined take on the traditional rustic aesthetic

THE ALPINE COLLECTION • At fashion supremo Massimo Giorgetti’s mountain home, which sits in the shadow of Mont Blanc, chalet style gets a modern makeover

THE ONLY WAY IS UP • What could be better than a quaint mountainside chalet? A luxurious six-floor interpretation, with an updated approach to alpine charm
