Traditional glassware from Garden Trading, the like of which I remember seeing in my great-grandmother Lorna's kitchen.

I love the sound - and look - of this Yorkshire campsite. The showers are in original wooden shepherds huts and there's an open-air roll-top bath, a wind-up gramophone and a dressing-up box. You can rent out one of their hand-painted caravans, or a tepee, and everyone eats breakfast in the circus marquee.

If money were no object, I'd own a rambling Tuscan farmhouse like this one, owned by Mark and Domitilla Getty. I love how she's decorated it in such a spare way - leaving the rough patina of the stone walls, but cleverly bringing in colour with a stripy rug or bright lampshade.

I've been boring my friend Matt with my pipe-dream of one day opening a coffee shop... and to inspire me, this morning he sent me a link to Attridge & Cole, the most swoon-worthy coffee cart I've ever seen: a lovely old Citroen van that drives around Belfast selling cappuccinos and pastries. I love.
