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