We're excited to introduce our new events and editorial series : At Home With. The series brings together like-minded creatives over an intimate dinner setting in the homes of artists, tastemakers, collectors and designers - encouraging us to take a close look at what The Home means to each person, and how they have curated it to fit their personality.

Our first dinner and took place in the magical home of Partnership Editions’ artist Julianna Byrne who has produced a special series of original artworks to coincide with the dinner (available below).

We couldn’t have been luckier with the weather - one of the first hot days of Spring when it beckons the arrival of Summer - the warm glow of the setting sun gleaming through the hanging wisteria in her walled garden.

Julianna’s home perfectly echoes the style of her work - decorated with an unpretentious effortlessness, and an exceptional eye. As you would expect from an artist who paints botanicals, her home is dense with leafy ferns and potted plants - often found in her own ceramics, which have been adorned with hand-painted water nymphs.

Mia, our wonderful chef for the evening and long time friend of Julianna’s, created the most spectacular summer feast. Hand-made tagliatelli was dried on a washing rack, becoming a much admired art installation in its own right. As well as the seasonal produce sourced by Natoora, Mia used goat’s curd from her family farm - so fresh and light, and dangerously moreish. With local, homegrown produce being important to both Mia and Julianna, it made perfect sense to serve Raimes English Sparkling wine for an aperitif - its crisp fresh apple notes were a perfect refresher to the hot day.

Mourchon Rosé and Red flowed freely through the evening, and despite being the first time many had met, guests stayed until the early hours, chatting like old friends - immediately at home with each other.

For the full menu, see below.
