Our contributors share their home truths…

Liz Hurley

Household gadget you couldn’t live without? My sorbet maker; I make several a week using the zillions of berries I pick and freeze every summer.

Whose home would you most like to poke around in? I’d like to look through the Queen’s wardrobes. She must have thousands of unbelievable dresses, coats, bags and hats.

What’s the best present to take to your dinner host? I take bottles of Chase Vodka, which is made near me in Herefordshire. They come in great Union Jack gift tins.

What’s really missing from your home? My house would be transformed if I owned Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus… Mind you, whose wouldn’t?

Shaun Rankin

Household gadget you couldn’t live without? The Wolf blender from Sub-Zero & Wolf. It’s not just a blender but my go-to for everything from smoothies to hot winter soups.

     

Whose home would you most like to poke around in? Any of the royals. What do they eat for a midweek meal, what do they cook at home, do they put their feet up and watch TV?

What’s the best present to take to your dinner host? I always bring the wine. That way you know you’re always going to drink something nice.

What’s really missing from your home? A sauna. I try and have one at least once a week because I travel a lot and it stops me getting ill.

Marbella Beach Club

Alice Lascelles

Household gadget you couldn’t live without? An electric blanket – our house is freezing.

Whose home would you most like to poke around in? A minimalist’s – how do they do it? I bet their cupboards are actually full of crap.

What’s the best present to take to your dinner host? A friend once turned up bearing homemade bagels, smoked salmon, cream cheese and a bottle of Bollinger – I thought that was stylish in the extreme.

What’s really missing from your home? A huge garden with a tree-lined river at the bottom of it.

Anna Pasternak

Household gadget you couldn’t live without? A dishwasher. Life would be misery without it.

Whose home would you most like to poke around? The Paris home of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. To see if I could feel their presence lingering there.

What’s the best present to take to your dinner host? Dixit. It’s the best board game ever.

What’s really missing from your home? A walk-in larder and a big boot room.
