Things I’ve seen, done and loved this month...

Country Homes & Interiors - - LETTER FROM THE EDITOR - Rhoda x

Can you smell au­tumn in the air? this is­sue is ded­i­cated to savour­ing the start of a new sea­son and an in­stinc­tive im­pulse to gather our­selves for cooler times ahead. tra­di­tion­ally, it’s a time when in­te­rior styles turn cosier, richer and more tex­tu­ral, as we make the move from an out­door life to a nest­ing one. one of our favourite ways to dec­o­rate this au­tumn will be with the ex­plo­sion of colour­ful and cap­ti­vat­ing pat­tern, ev­i­dent in the lat­est fab­ric and wall­pa­per col­lec­tions. our 12-page dec­o­rat­ing guide (from page 67) show­cases five new trends – from Ar­chive to Botan­ica and flo­ral to fu­sion – and shows you how to cre­ate beau­ti­ful and char­ac­ter­ful room schemes. We also take a look at the coun­try colours your walls will love in our paint spe­cial (page 89). Pumpkin love (page 10), turn­ing leaves (page 130) and cel­e­brat­ing the honey har­vest (page 144) are sea­sonal touch­points you tell us you en­joy, so all are cov­ered here, plus our pick of the best mod­ern coun­try houses (from page 24) from the ru­ral folk who are truly liv­ing the dream... happy home­mak­ing!

PS... the lovely peo­ple at tolly mcrae are of­fer­ing 20% off their su­per-snug­gly blan­kets and throws (page 129). Plus save 15% on hal­loween bis­cuits at Bis­cuiteers (page 18).
