Materials play an important role in putting people at ease.
“The country is definitely not a place for fussy, formal materials like silks and satins," says Grace. "I use lots of linen. I also like mixing in really heavy, open weave knit blankets, burlap tablecloths, woven baskets and natural fibre rugs. Together with antiques, it creates a tactile experience and makes you feel like it’s okay to kick back.”
