While Alasdair Cameron of @camerongardens spends most of his time designing gardens for other people, both in the UK and abroad, it is his own plot in Devon that has had an increasing pull since he moved here in 2011 with his wife Tor and their children. He has transformed it from farmyard and field into a charming family garden that feels rooted in its rural landscape. ‘The aim was for the garden to melt seamlessly into the landscape, using borrowed and framed views to enhance the atmosphere,' he says.

Villa Mauresque outside Marrakesh belongs to @trudi .ballard, who for many years has steered the press and publicity of @sibylcolefax . Trudi's project began over 10 years ago. 'I've always loved Morocco - the light, the smells and complete costrast to London living. While I was there, I had heard that someone was building a small group of houses between Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains. I went to look at the site and loved it immediately.'

A few years ago, Jos White and his wife Annabel of @lubelleloves moved back home to the UK from New York, purchased a house in west London, and brought Basil Walter of @bwarchitects on board to work his magic on the house, and their friend @suzanne_sharp , co-founder of @therugcompany , to mastermind the interiors. At the back of the building an open-plan kitchen and dining room runs the width of the building; this feels like a garden room with its views through the windows, plentiful indoor plants and cane furniture.

Kate and Nicholas Coulson’s hilltop garden in Provence is perfectly adapted to its surroundings, with a mix of low-maintenance plants that thrive in the extreme conditions. It sits blissfully in its ridge-top position, the table-top mulberries stretched out against clear skies, and in the shade of its wind-blown trees there is always a perfect spot in which to lie quietly and dream.

Sometimes it is the smallest and simplest of details that can upgrade a scheme from good to great. @adambraydesigns has taken us through a house he designed in Hackney and explained the clever touches that elevate his schemes. 'It is hard to use curtains in bay windows successfully, but I think we have found an elegant solution here. We extended the curtain pole all the way to the adjacent walls, so the shutters – a beautiful feature in their own right – are still visible when the curtains are open. The owners of the house are a young couple with children, so it felt right to do something informal and unlined – and this vibrant scarlet wool melton drapes beautifully.'

On the site of a former vicarage in Hampshire, Andrew and Sarah Hills of @portaromanauk have created an elegant and distinguished family house, which has an established feel despite its modern reconstruction. The moods of the rooms are diverse, moving from cool and refined in the living room to opulent and colourful in the dining room, then to ultra modern in the kitchen, and pretty and traditional in the main bedroom. @farrowandball 's ‘Black Blue’ paint adds to the dark, moody atmosphere in this library corner. 📸 @michaelsinclair

Having bought a virgin plot in Palo Alto, its owners had planned on building a house in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, a look characteristic of the West Coast. Interior designer @davidbentheim however, pushed for something with a distinctly more European flavour, and in the end his intervention proved decisive. Externally, the house - roofed in terracotta and painted in shimmering white - would not seem out of place in Palma or Ibiza. Indoors, the Mediterranean sensibility is stronger still.

When interior designer Diana Sieff bought Ebenezer Chapel, a very small, converted but unmodernised Methodist chapel in Oxfordshire, she set about reworking the space for modern living. When initially converted, the chapel had been divided up in the old­fashioned way into lots of small rooms, which she opened up and extended. Here double doors, from Cox's Reclamation Yard in Moreton-in-Marsh, open from the entrance hall into the sitting room.

‘My floristry is entirely led by what’s in season,’ says Polly Nicholson of @bayntunflowers , the business she runs from Blackland House in Wiltshire. ‘We have 100 acres, so I harvest from the hedgerows and trees as well as what we grow. In fact, I cut from the whole garden – practically everything is planted and designed with that in mind.’ At the front of her house, plants such as erigeron, verbascum and salvias are allowed to self seed to soften the terrace.

Such is @sibylcolefax decorator @violetburns ' devotion to books that when she converted a barn at her country home into a sitting-room-cum-guest-cottage, she made them its main focus. 'This place used to be a glorified garden shed,' she explains, 'and though it seemed daft to have so much space and not do anything with it, we couldn't decide what. Then we moved from our old house in London into a much smaller one and ended up with all these books sitting in storage, so we decided to make it into a book room.'

A quintessentially English walled garden by @xatollemache at a Regency house in Hampshire. A combination of the formal and informal, the garden is filled with all you could wish for – from water and wisteria tunnels to roses and clipped box borders. ‘It is a love affair,’ says Xa of the owners’ passion for horticulture. ‘We work on the garden together to make it ever better.’ Follow the link in our profile to see the house, with its interiors by @sibylcolefax designer @misterpip . 📸 @michaelsinclair

'There is not enough good domestic architecture being commissioned in this country,' says Jacob Rothschild, who commissioned Flint House, in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor, from architect Charlotte Skene-Catling. Charlotte conceived the idea of two wedge-shape flint buildings, the main house and an annex, 50 metres apart but facing each other and engaged in a dialogue. They seem to emerge organically out of the earth, like geological extrusions thrown up by tectonic upheaval. David Mlinaric helped with the interiors, acquiring the odd new piece of furniture and dipping into the Waddesdon storeroom, known as 'the Pink Shed', for others.

Human nature being what it is, disasters make the best stories. So what is there to say about a covetable family home, on the edge of a Dorset village, spick and span after a major makeover that was as harmonious in progress as it is pleasing in completion? The house already had bucket-loads of charm. Home to generations of wealthy gentleman farmers, it dates from the 16th and early 17th centuries, and has now been refreshed with interior designer @samanthatodhunterdesign 's 'crisp, fresh take on country-house style.'

The writer and garden-maker Umberto Pasti and his partner Stephan Janson, a French-born fashion designer and couturier, fell in love with Morocco more than 30 years ago. ‘We drove through the mountains towards Tangier and came across fields of irises as dramatic as an El Greco painting. It was raining and there was the most beautiful double rainbow.’ The gods were clearly pointing them towards Tangier, which in those days was like a ‘big village’, so they bought a house with some land not far from the city centre and Umberto began to make a garden there. He now has another house and garden in the countryside at Rohuna, both exquisite and filled with objects collected over a lifetime.

A view down a flagged path at @sean_swallow 's garden at Scatterford in the Forest of Dean. Edged with delicate Corydalis ‘Blue Panda’ and Viola cornuta ‘Alba’, the path leads under a series of striking hornbeam arches, to the lower level of the walled garden. Sean has been at Scatterford, which he calls ‘an old yeoman’s house’, for some 11 years, and has created a garden rooted in the landscape, with beautiful vistas at every turn.

Miranda Alexander’s purchase of an old rectory on the edge of a Dorset village must be one of the shortest and sweetest. ‘Pure serendipity,’ she calls it. ‘I saw a picture the size of a postage stamp illustrating an article about unfitted kitchens and underneath it mentioned that the house was for sale. Something happened inside me – some intuition – and I contacted the agent, jumped in the car and hurtled down from London to see it. I knew I wanted to buy it the minute the back door opened.’ Follow the link in our profile to read the full story. 📸 @simonuptonphotos

It’s not often that I get a completely free rein to change spaces around,' says @virginia_howard_design of her work on this London flat, where she has transformed the layout completely. Three bedrooms became two and an immense amount of storage was created, most of it hidden behind panelled doors. In the main bedroom the walls are painted to match curtains in ‘Darya’ from @chelseatextiles , an embroidery on grey-green linen. 📸 @paul_massey

The houses in this pretty street in Chelsea are modest in size and varied in style, some dating back to the nineteenth century. At the far end of the road lies a pair of very unassuming Thirties houses - one of only two matching pairs in the street. This pair has been knocked together to form an elegant, spacious home. A sunny courtyard garden opens off the kitchen, in roughly the shape of a keyhole. On the rooftop above the kitchen is another garden with a decked terrace.

@shalinimisraltd 's north London house is an elegant, double-fronted Victorian villa: a place where, even without the blue plaque outside, you would get the sense that the walls within have interesting stories to tell. Inside, however, it is clear that Shalini has not shied away from adding her own distinctive narrative to the space, bending it to her will through bold architectural intervention. Catch Shalini talking about the power of holistic design in her online talk with @the_calico_club , at 6pm BST today, Wednesday July 22.
