With well above average UK temperatures for the time of year, I've found my thoughts wondering to stylish summer holiday escapes. Much of this daydreaming has centered around relaxed countryside living, where open doors allow a gentle breeze to blow through the house, as the sound of crickets fills the air. There would be rustic furniture in every room - much like the details seen in this dining room - with colourful additions to add a playful tone to each space. Fragrant, freshly picked blooms would adorn vases for a casual centerpiece, and old linens would soften wooden tabletops. There would be good food, great wine and even better friends. What would your ideal country escape be like?
