editor’s note

It is a pleasure to unveil this April issue of Homes & Gardens. It includes our biannual edit of the latest fabrics and wallpapers, which this season is themed around the creative industries (page 45). The inspiration behind each image is a craft, from woodwork to writing, in order to emphasise the trend of the maker. Texture is another key theme for SS19, with raw finishes and unusual materials playing a role. There has been a shift in colour confidence, too, evidenced by the strong hues that have come to the fore. I hope you enjoy our whimsical story; it has an optimistic, bold spirit – and proves that there is room for a little fun.With the advent of spring it is also time to look outside. So, together…

BRIGHT IDEA Nothing creates an atmospheric glow like lamplight and this new design by Alexander Joseph is cordless, so it can be moved around to create an inviting scene. We love the idea of illuminating a garden table while eating outside. Lamps are British-made with ceramic or glass bases in a choice of jewel hues; you can use them for 52 hours before recharging. Prices from £1,380. DREAM WEAVER Luxury rug designer Luke Irwin has launched an exclusive diffusion range in collaboration with John Lewis & Partners. Priced from £1,800, the 11 rugs are hand-knotted using his signature traditional technique and made with a unique dyeing process that leaves a small proportion of the sari silk undyed to give each rug a brilliant, unexpected shot of…

the natural home

WE THINK OF WELLNESS AS BEING FOCUSED ON MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT. WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?At House of Grey we tie all that together with the surrounding environment – the space that encompasses us and how it affects our personal wellbeing. We live in a world of constant overstimulation – with pressures from social media, the demands of consumerism and a restricted work-life balance all contributing to less downtime for everyone. To help rectify this, House of Grey has revisited the concept of the home and work environment in order to create spaces that are dedicated to replenishing your energy levels by engaging all five senses. This means a home, while still an active, functioning space, is also a restorative haven. Similarly, we believe a productive workplace can also…

The English Windsor chair and Forged Martini table Cruck-frame Farmhouse table and Forge candelabra, all Stride & Co. Furrowed wardrobe Q Have you always been a creative person?My interest in woodworking came in my mid-teens when I began designing and making speakers. I loved it and took it very seriously, but as a business it was a definite loss-leader. My parents are both laid-back and were very good at letting my sister Ottalie and I follow our passions rather than pushing us in any direction. → Rory is skilled in mixing materials Rory Stride Q Was furniture design always something that you were interested in?My dad has a small antiques auction house, which I started going to when I was young. I loved the buzz of…
