the wonder of the stars

Long have we stared into the deep blue-black of the night sky, and mapped the course of the glittering stars. The history of astronomy is rich – it is at the same time a science, a hobby and an art form – and as such the antiques that it promises are varied. From technical equipment like telescopes and gyroscopes, to more artistic pieces such as lunar and constellation charts the antiques available are not only fascinating but also make for beautiful, romantic additions to our homes. We indulge in some very stylish stargazing from page 40.Back on terra firma, we have a quite extraordinary selection of homes for you this month. Tour the incredible Manhattan apartment of interiors doyenne Iris Apfel on page 54 – her maximalist style and…

my five favourite pieces in this issue…

STAR LIGHT This Solar System antique brass light is one of the stars (forgive the pun!) of our shoot. SHOP THRIFTY Vintage furniture, such as this charming chest of drawers, can be practical, affordable and full of character. CLASSIC CHOICE A great antique rug will never go out of style, and this Moroccan example is worth investing in.

Old Friends Reunited For years I bought Homes & Antiques, and loved the variety of articles to suit everyone’s taste, but in 2011 I was made redundant and reluctantly had to cut back on a number of luxuries (one being H&A). However, earlier this year I received your offer to buy every digital back issue for a fantastically reduced price. I snapped it up and have been reading H&A almost every day since. It was hard to give up at the time but now it’s like you have never been away. Steve Eddleston, Lancashire Happy Memories Bea was delighted to see Charleston Farmhouse inside our November issue. It reminded her of a painting she did many years ago. For many years I have enjoyed…

A collaboration between luxe Italian e-store Artemest and artisan Italian porcelain manufacturer Richard Ginori, which is famed for its floral motifs, they come in pink, white and green and are emblazoned with words such as ‘desire’ and ‘love’ – rather apt, considering it’s Valentine’s this month.
