While most of us were relaxing over the Easter break, Michael headed for the wilds of Norfolk. There, in the tranquillity of the Broadlands, under clear, open skies, he met up with two of our best-loved designers, Helen Howes and Helen Butcher.

The purpose of the visit? It turns out that the natural surroundings of this beautiful, unspoiled corner of England, provide the perfect spot for incubating creative ideas. We can't yet divulge any detail, but here's a taster of some of what's in store. (Details to follow in our newsletters and here on our website shortly.)
We're fortunate to have collaborated with both Helens for several years and the fruits of our relationship - an impressive roll call of projects - are available for you to enjoy too. For a list of their current projects and to get an insight into their approach, check out our designer spotlights: Helen Howes, Helen Butcher.
