CHARLES RUTHERFOORD Interior and landscape designer Charles Rutherfoord’s introduction to architecture was a classic case of parental influence, with regular excursions to churches and monasteries as a child. ‘My parents were passionate about Romanesque architecture,’ he says. Charles got his first break at Christie’s in the furniture and tapestries department. He set up on his own in 1984 and was soon tasked with his first project: the restructuring of a Seventies mews house, featured in House & Garden in 1985. Since then he has gone on to design houses, fashion stores and gardens, and has applied his taste and knowledge to designing furniture. From page 146 in this issue, he opens the doors of his own Victorian London house. When you are not working, where would we _nd you? ‘On an island, pole dancing.’ JONATHAN…

There is one frustrating thing about being the editor of a magazine like House & Garden. You see so many ideas and wonderful things that inspire – be it a curtain detail or beautiful joinery – that you want to create endless new rooms. But I can’t. We have one house that we decorated fairly recently and small children. I am increasingly resigned to the fact that, for now, our house revolves around them. The latest addition is anything but covetable – a brightly coloured toy kitchen in our actual kitchen. I wince, but it is loved. That said, inspired by Elizabeth Metcalfe’s ‘Design ideas’ on specialist finishes (from page __) – and having just been to the new Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler showroom on Pimlico Road (a showcase of,…

When London Craft Week launched in 2105, most of the events, open studios and demonstrations were centred around Mayfair and Bloomsbury. But its geographical parameters have now been dramatically expanded to include events throughout the city. A case in point this year is the inclusion of Peckham-based potter Stuart Carey, who will be putting on a talk about the future of ceramics at his south London communal studio, The Kiln Rooms. He set up the space with his friend Ben Cooper in May 2014. ‘I had a great ceramics education, and I always felt that it was necessary to continue the transference of skills,’ says Stuart. The studio now has 65 members, 15 wheels and four kilns, and runs seven classes a week. ‘We are about to sign the lease…
