We love that link between past and present

Lucy and Will Saggers’ attention to detail has given their period house a new lease of life

Photographer Lucy Saggers specialises in pictures of country life and her evocative images of local people and landscapes fill her family home in North Yorkshire. ‘I love that link between past and present,’ she says. ‘Every picture tells a story. That’s why I love to mix old and new, it gives us a sense of belonging and turns our home into something more than just a place in which to live.’

Good idea!

Give plain shelves in an alcove a built-in look by framing the alcove with architrave that matches your door frames.

Will turned a plain alcove into an elegant set of book shelves by framing it with architrave. Lucy painted the floor in Farrow & Ball Hardwick White and the walls in Clunch to create a lovely tranquil atmosphere. The rug, from Rugs of the World, and colourful accessories give a favourite old armchair a modern edge

The one-time village tea shop has nestled on the edge of the village stream for over 300 years and is Grade II listed, standing in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the very edge of the North Moors National Park.

About Your Home Magazine

We’re halfway through the year now and summer is in full swing, so there’s no better excuse to get out into the garden. In this month’s issue we’ve got lots of great ideas to help make the most of your time outdoors. On page 36 we take a look at this year’s hottest trends for outdoor living. From classic country style to laid-back coastal blues and tropical brights, you’re sure to find a look you love that will help you create your perfect room outdoors. And, if you’re feeling creative, then try your hand at our brilliant upcycling project (p.62) which transforms an unwanted old bed into a gorgeous garden bench, or stitch up a storm and create our beautiful embroidered hanging storage pockets (p.64). If your beds and borders are looking a little lacklustre, then take inspiration from the latest trend from the RHS show gardens – elegant blue and white is the most beautiful colour combination to make your garden look truly stunning this summer (p.114). We’ve also got a simple step-by-step project (pardon the pun) to help you create a set of rustic log steps in your garden (p.66). The warmer weather also means most of us start to hanker after lighter, fresher meals, so we’ve rustled up some super salad recipes in this month’s food section. The roasted sweetcorn and halloumi salad is my favourite. Finally, we’ve also got some truly inspiring makeovers and real reader homes for you to take a peek at. Enjoy!
