Enjoy a walk around this family home in Hampshire

The owners of this Hampshire home wanted ‘Nothing too dark or formal’ and went instead for a gentle palette of creams and taupes. Where once the words ‘rural idyll’ evoked a vision of low beams, flagstones and a dresser festooned with painted mugs, tastes have moved on and these days, well-heeled urbanites crave pastoral peace alongside unfussy furnishings, open-plan spaces and iPod docks.
