When our founder, Liz Houghton, completed the re-fit of her 1904 Miss Marple Buckinghamshire home, we couldn’t help but share with her favourite interior’s magazine Living ETC.

Scandi Hallway

Flash the dog welcomes guests whilst perched on the battered leather sofa with soft linen cushions.

In the September issue take a peek inside her home which tells you everything you need to know about her taste and homage to hygge (pronounced ‘hue-gah’) the Danish word embodying togetherness, a feeling of being warm, safe and comforted.

“I loved the idea of an interior that’s like a cashmere jumper, cosseting and comfortable”

Neutral layers flow throughout the house along with thoughtful features that are both practical and decorative, Scandinavian industrial style with a splash of glam. The home is a haven, a space to feel cocooned not engulfed by things.

“In a crazy world, the idea that you can come home to a calm sanctuary is very appealing”

Scandi Kitchen Diner Mint Velvet

The family area with natural textures and honest materials.  “I like to work at the kitchen table while [my daughter] does her homework. What matters is being together.”

Discover how the laid-back stylishness of Mint Velvet’s mantra Relaxed Glam runs through her home in Living ETC’s September issue OUT NOW.
