Join two of the world’s most celebrated designers, Paolo Moschino and Philip Vergeylen, as they throw open the doors to their enchanting renovated home in the English countryside
When London-based design gurus Paolo Moschino and Philip Vergeylen sought a country house for weekends out of the city, they embarked on an adventure filled with surprises, beauty, and the unexpected. Now, 12 years later, their Sussex home has become their base—not just a weekend escape for relaxation but a home filled with collections, an office, and a series of formal gardens that has proven perfect for entertaining. Nestled between pages of stunning imagery from some of the design world’s best photographers, Moschino and Vergeylen include engaging stories and anecdotes from their years spent in the English countryside, along with recipes from their favorite dinners and notes on their celebrated design philosophy. And now they invite you to join them, inside their beautiful country home.
About the authors
Born and raised in Italy, Paolo Moschino came to London at the age of 23 and never left. After working with famed collector and dealer Nicky Haslam for many years, Moschino eventually bought the company, which has now morphed into Paolo Moschino Ltd. With three interior design showrooms in London, the brand continues to evolve. Moschino’s partner, Belgian-born Philip Vergeylen, helms the company’s Design Studio and is now recognized around the world as a leading voice in luxury interior design. They divide their time between London and Sussex. Bunny Williams is a world-renowned interior and garden designer, and the author of several books. She divides her time between Connecticut and Punta Cana.
