Searching for the perfect home in the country

I recently filmed an episode of Celebrity Fantasy Homes* with the lovely Gaby Roslin who was helping me look for the perfect country house. Being able to take a break in the Oxfordshire countryside, if even for the weekend, offers much needed respite from my busy schedule. I love being surrounded by rolling hills and the slower pace of life in the country. Having the chance to get outside and just breath fresh air really helps me stay balanced.

Gaby and I had a great time, as you can see on the show, and looked at four very different properties. I loved the big grand country house the best. The space felt right and the views were just stunning! The house I was most shocked by was the one shaped like a fish. The design was very personal to the homeowner and I think it would be hard for anyone to imagine themselves living in someone else’s very distinct vision.

When working on the Lakes by Yoo properties I really wanted to create a homey feel by blending a bit of urban style into a country setting. The look of spaces is a sort of shabby chic featuring vintage pieces, loose linen throws and gorgeous textures all finished off with modern features. I think the spaces struck the perfect balance between country and city so that anyone would feel at home in the space. Of course it helped that the properties also boast amazing views and stunning external building design thanks to the vision of John Hitchcox and the rest of the Yoo team.

In the end none of the four homes quite ticked the boxes for my ideal country home so my search continues. I did have a great time with Gaby and was reminded of the best approach to decorating a country home which I could share with you.

*Celebrity Fantasy Homes will be airing on at 16:00 on October 7 and 20:00 on October 9 on UK TV channel Home (Sky 246 and Virgin 265).
