The nursery has been accessorised with traditional toys and music boxes that Grace bought from a toy museum discovered on a London backstreet. Besides being gorgeous to look at, they are also playthings for Raphael, while vintage cushions, a silvery cabinet from Portobello Market and an Indian mirror are all quirky one-off pieces. A white sleigh-style cot from Chic Shack was a special purchase. “I bought that with the advance from my book,” says Grace. “I knew that if I didn’t snap it up there and then, I’d regret it.”

Beyond Raphael’s nursery is the main bedroom, a luxurious space with his and hers painted French wardrobes, a vast bed and a plethora of feminine adornments. Grace has created an indulgent corner that’s purely for her. It boasts a mirrored dressing table with vintage scent bottles, pretty corsages, favourite bits of jewellery 
and family photographs. “Michael does roll his eyes. He had to put a cap on the girly French boudoir-chic thing, or heaven knows where it would have ended,” she laughs.
