From an 1822 country house in Norfolk, England, Paula Sutton has built Hill House Vintage, a blog and Instagram account for lovers of cottagecore, where she shares vintage tables, gingham frocks, stands holding spongecakes and herb gardens. Her first book, “Hill House Living: The Art of Creating a Joyful Life,” is a mix of decorating — and life — lessons. The former London fashion executive adopted a slower lifestyle after she moved her family to the country. Her message is that our homes should be the joy-filled centers of a calm and cozy life.
