Tour this farmhouse home full of artistic decorative touches

With a little help from artist Philippa Jeffrey and her husband Jonathan, this Grade II-listed 18th-century farmhouse has stepped out of the shadows and into the light. When they bought their country home five years ago it was very dark, with a dull gray and beige décor. But it is fast becoming a latter-day interpretation of Charleston style – the decorative Sussex home of the Bloomsbury Group. Rich, inspiring and uplifting shades and thought-provoking patterns make their marks in every room of the house. Philippa has left no surface untouched. 

And the truly unique decorative finishes make this one of the world’s best homes, full of inspirational touches we’d all love to see in our own homes. Here are the highlights.
