October 2015, on sale 17th September
Homes and Antiques’ October issue is out now!
There's a chill in the air telling us that autumn is around the corner and here at H&A we’re feeling invigorated and ready to embrace the trends taking us through the colder months. There's plenty to get excited about.
In our latest issue you’ll find our guide to the latest homeware fashions and how they fit into the history of interiors, the story behind the abundant trend for fruit and vegetable ceramics and five timeless houses to whet your appetite for the new season.
Don't let the chillier temperatures confine you to your sofas though. Cinead McTernan got her wellies out to go stomping through the best arboretums in the country. Take a look at her favourites to decide where you’ll be heading this month.
We’ve got antiques aplenty too. Inspired by the Bonhams sale of Richard Attenborough’s incredible movie memorabilia, H&A takes a look at the ever-popular collecting area of silverscreen souvenirs, while Rosanna Morris delves into the story of Edgar Degas' charming bronze ballerina which sold for £15m at auction. We also meet interior designer and fashion icon Iris Apfel – a quick-talking 93 year-old with no sign of slowing down – for a chat about her beloved European antiques.
Finally don't forget to take part in our reader survey for the chance to win a £250 John Lewis gift voucher!
