Cook and author Skye McAlpine welcomes us into her 4,000 square-foot Italian apartment — part of the 17th-century Palazzo Gradenigo — just off the Grand Canal in Venice. Layered in history, Skye McAlpine’s Venetian sanctuary maintains plenty of the palazzo’s original details, such as the 18th-century fresco in the living room and the decorative flowering of rocaille in the breakfast room.

Joanna Plant's Home is Her Laboratory
When interior designer Joanna Plant and her husband Nick first saw their 1920s house in west London it was, by all accounts, something of an ugly duckling, yet they saw potential in it. “It’s evolved a lot,” she explains, “but it’s been very, very slow, and there was never a plan. I think for that reason, it doesn’t feel decorated, which I find I like at home. I don’t really want to live in an overly coordinated, thought-through home.”

As interior decorator Emma Burns has memorably remarked, if windows are the eyes of a room, pelmets are the mascara, and since we all know the effect a good mascara can have on a face, it's certainly worth considering the decorative potential of a pelmet. If they just seem a bit too granny-ish for you, think again! While we take delight in a traditional chintzy pelmet, there are plenty of styles that can work for contemporary houses, smart cottages and playful, youthful interiors.
