Things I’ve seen, done and loved this month

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

The spirit of the for­est rus­tles through this is­sue of Coun­try Homes & In­te­ri­ors.

As we jour­ney into au­tumn, deep pine greens and earthy blacks are here to warm up our in­te­ri­ors. Turn to page 72 to see how th­ese of-the-mo­ment shades can cre­ate an in­tensely homely cabin look. Conker browns and charm­ing coun­try life fab­rics are also high on our sea­sonal wish list, so take a look at our ‘Things we can’t live with­out’ buys (page 10) where you’ll dis­cover easy ways to style and up­date rooms with rus­tic ap­peal.

As we hun­ker down for cooler times, the kitchen be­comes the hub of ev­ery­day life. Turn to page 101 for 10 time­less coun­try kitchens featuring the stand-out de­signs that are set to be­come mod­ern coun­try clas­sics. While fol­low­ing on, on page 112, we re­veal our favourite range cook­ers that have been rein­vented for to­day’s new ways of cook­ing. We’ve also been out and about meet­ing some truly in­spi­ra­tional coun­try folk. From artist Clare Brown­low, who paints with a pheas­ant feather, to food blog­ger Tess Lis­ter and tex­tile de­signer Margo Selby, here they share their lives and coun­try mo­ments that re­ally mat­ter. Fi­nally, Hal­loween and Bon­fire Night are knock­ing at our doors (page 84), we hope you cel­e­brate with a bang!
