I'd like to live at Gipsy House.

The spring/summer issue of Vogue Living opens with an article by fellow bibliophile, Sophie Dahl, reflecting on her childhood memories of her grandparents' tumbling cottage in the English countryside, Gipsy House, ripe with late 1970s halycon days and potent sadness to fuel my mania for Anglo-childhoods.
