India is a country that inspires so much of what we do at Bamford and this is particularly true of our Spring Summer 2017 collection. Based on a palette of neutrals with injections of coral, the collection is almost entirely crafted by hand and inspired by the colours and shapes of the continent.
Seasonal table arrangements are one of my favourite ways to bring nature inside the home and can transform an ordinary table into something extraordinary.

The beginning of the year offers an opportunity to reset, rebalance and restore. This year we look towards a strengthened commitment to the relationship between our body and mind.
Cold January evenings are the time for curling up by the fire with a good book
I am so happy to announce the opening of our first Bamford Haybarn Spa in America. The beautiful spa is set within 1 Hotel South Beach in Miami – a hotel that I have long admired and which shares our love for nature and understanding of sustainable luxury and design.
January is the time for rest and recuperation and I am looking forward to our Health and Wellness Retreat, which returns to the farm from 27-29th January.
