The countryside has always held appeal for those trapped in the urban jungle, as it can be difficult for artful minds to isolate themselves from the 24/7 stimuli that cities bring. With a greater appetite for `authentic' experiences, working practices and creative inspiration, metropolitan talents are setting up studios far from the madding crowd. Combining a more relaxed lifestyle, budding entrepreneurship and social media, a new generation of young creatives is redefining `country living'. Creative Living Country celebrates this new breed of artists and creatives - from photographers to textile designers, from ceramicists to musicians - who have found a way to make their homes, work and lifestyle a seamless whole away from the city lights. Looking at 25 houses across the UK, Chloe Grimshaw and Luke White provide a glimpse into truly original homes that could only have been inspired by country life. From the East Anglian fens to the Cornish coast, from the hills of the Lake District to the moors of Scotland, the unique landscapes that make up the British experience take on new meaning in the hands of these creative pioneers and provide inspiration for all of us, no matter where we live.
