editor’s letter

During the summer, I often long for autumn to arrive. Some people wish the heat would never end, but I relish the changing of the seasons and the unique joys that autumn brings – from cooler nights and crisp walks amid trees turning red and gold, to cosying up in front of a roaring fire with a blanket and cup of tea in hand. Whether you’re looking forward to October, or still need some convincing, this issue has all the inspiration you need to get into the mood, starting with the latest decorating ideas to maximise warmth and comfort – from plush furnishings and relaxed textures to fireside shades of mustard, berry and terracotta (page 24).

From £52 per m. Save the birds Fabric designer Lorna Syson has collaborated with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) to create two new fabrics inspired by her favourite feathered friends and their habitats. With current designs featuring robins and wrens to goldcrests and greenfinches, birds have become a signature motif for Lorna, so the RSPB made a perfect design partner.

What is it about the Natural History Museum and its collections that appeals to you? Working with London’s iconic Natural History Museum to create five new designs for wallpapers, fabrics and cushions has been an incredible journey through time, and a personal dream come true.

Tell us about the inspiration behind Botanize Botanize is inspired by the ‘Cathedral of Nature’ at London’s Natural History Museum – the iconic great hall. Most visitors miss the spectacular vaulted ceiling, adorned with 162 illustrated panels showing plants from across the world. Our Botanize wallpaper celebrates these…
