the return to colour

Move over spring cleaning, this year, we’re all about spring painting. Here to help you pick the right hue for your next project, we have not only pulled together the most exciting colours of the season, but we have also suggested the sorts of antique collections that will really sing against each on-trend palette. Turn to page 42 to be inspired... Our homes this month are also likely to leave you dreaming of your next design project (from page 55).

FASCINATING RHYTHM This 19th-century ceremonial lacquer drum from China is vibrant and full of character.

A trip down memory lane I thoroughly enjoyed reading the ‘Out of the Ordinary’ travel feature in the February issue – it brought back many happy memories. Forty-eight years ago and newly married, we lived in Forest Hill, almost next door to the Horniman Museum. We visited on a regular basis with guests – and in time with our toddler son (now 47) – and all thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds and the quirky contents of the museum.
