I’m writing this having just had my first Covid vaccine dose a couple of hours ago. Thankfully, aside from a sore arm, there are no noticeable side effects. Apart from the fact that I’m beside myself with excitement, that is…
I’m frankly light-headed at the thought of the tantalising freedoms ahead. The chance to hug and hold loved ones close, the opportunity to press up against sweaty strangers as we dance at a live music gig, get served in a packed pub and swig a cold pint of draught beer.
Beyond these endless anticipations, I also can’t wait to get away from the hard, urban confines of London, to stride through fields of sunflowers or feel the sea washing over my bare feet.
As ever, this issue of ELLE Decoration Country was wholeheartedly conceived with escapism in mind, bringing you the most gorgeous homes in rural or coastal locations across the world. Hopefully it will also give you something to get excited about, too.
Maybe not quite a vaccine, but still a shot of optimism and a sense that things can and will get better soon.
The ultimate dose of escapism, this latest issue of ELLE Decoration Country includes…
- Access to the world’s most beautiful homes in the countryside, from a sunny, smile-inducing villa in Ibiza to an architectural masterpiece on the shores of Porto Cervo
- Your invite to explore Kelly Hoppen’s Cotswolds barn, as well as the new abodes of more creatives quitting the city to enjoy the post-urban lifestyle
- Shopping edits to help you adopt the look of your favourite homes
- Our ELLE Decoration Country Directory – packed full of the interiors, homeware, antiques, bathroom and kitchen brands you need to know
