With the smell of freshly baked pecan pie wafting through the House and Garden offices, we have taken the American day of Independence to heart today with a celebration of all our favourite things from across the Pond.
Resident American Bella Lewis has compiled a comprehensive travel guide to The Hamptons, the East Coast beach town where anyone who is anyone will be spending the day.
Our columnist Rita Konig has written an ode to American style and considers what influences it has played on her own tastes.
We have also picked out some of our favourte US homes to showcase today, like this incredible six-storey Manhattan townhouse owned by tech millionaire Jos White.
So happy 4th of July everyone, we hope you’ll join us celebrating.
