• Behind the scenes: Kent cottage

    Just thought I would post this picture of Houses Editor, Vivienne Ayers, at a shoot last week in the heart of the Kent countryside. Viv travels all over the UK to find and photograph the best country houses for the magazine.

    ‘This is Emma and Gareth Jordan’s beautiful 16th century white clapperboard bakehouse,’ says Viv. ‘The Jordans bought two virtually derelict cottages, originally the bakery and the baker’s cottage, and knocked them together. The house was literally finished hours before the shoot… the carpenter finished installing the units in their beautiful new kitchen the previous evening. Here I am arranging flowers for the kitchen. It was an idyllic setting – we had a lovely day of spring sunshine and it was just perfect shooting with the daffodils and blossom out.’

    Look out for the house in a Spring 2012 issue!
