'I don't believe in deciding on a "look" and going out to find it; I get drawn to one thing and the room grows organically around it.' Christina Strutt Living Life Beautifully tells the story of how Christina founded legendary fabric company Cabbages & Roses and grew it into a lifestyle brand. Christina talks about her inspirations and influences, and how she works these into her products. Specially commissioned photography allows us a peek into her newly acquired London apartment, and we see behind the scenes at her family home in the Bath countryside.

This 600-year-old cottage is the backdrop for constantly changing interiors - it is where Christina designs her fabrics, experiments with her new wallpapers, and gathers all her favourite antiques, inherited gems and newly sourced vintage aquisitions. In addition, Christina shows us a selection of other homes and lifestyles she finds truly inspriational, including those of Brigette Buchanan, of interiors company Odd Limited and Maureen Doherty of Egg interiors store.
