This issue is all about colour, whether you're looking to refresh your home and set off your antiques with a newly painted wall, update a flea-market find with tips from Annie Sloan or find out more about vibrant 20th-century artworks and where to buy them at auction.

From a medieval guildhall packed to its rafters with antique textiles to an old school house that's backdrop to a beguiling mix of Asian treasures and mid-century finds, each of the five homes in our April issue will set you thinking about using shade and tone in all sorts of new ways. As will our in-depth look into the history of grey. Never again will you think of it as a colour to be passed off as neutral.

If you’re looking for somewhere to sit down and read the magazine, Alice Hancock investigates why architects and designers throughout the centuries have competed to make the most outstanding seats as well as picking out the best antique chairs to buy now. Meanwhile, Dominique Corlett tracks down 10 of the most intriguing stories of art fakes and forgeries.
