welcome

There’s something magical about the month of September. As summer draws to a close, it’s time to make a fresh start – a new term – and the air is charged with possibility. Refocusing indoors enables us to look at our homes with open eyes and a clean slate and ask the question: what needs improving? Whether you’ve got a full-scale renovation in mind, or simply want to play with the space you already have, you’ll find plenty in this issue to inspire you. Start with our selection of dreamy homes (on page 44), check out the latest flooring trends (on page 88), find out how to create a relaxing home workplace (on page 114), or choose stylish furniture ideas for compact living (on page 120). Whatever you do, embrace the season……

aerende

Online shop Aerende – pronounced ‘air-en-day’ – sells beautifully crafted homewares made in the UK by talented artisans. Ceramics, textiles and candles in limited editions feature on the pages of its website, all loosely inspired by nature and heritage techniques, with a touch of Scandi appeal. What sets this business apart from its many competitors though, is its socially responsible ethos. ‘I spotted a gap in the market for a truly ethical British interiors brand,’ explains founder Emily Mathieson, a former travel editor for Red magazine. ‘Many of us think about the provenance of our clothes and food, but not the things we put in our homes. I hoped to change that.’ The store launched online in the autumn of 2016, but Emily first had the idea in 2015, after buying a…

DOES YOUR BEDROOM REFLECT YOUR DESIGN WORK? Our bedroom is huge, with an open fireplace, an ottoman at the end of the bed, a lovely old Gustavian wardrobe and candelabra on the walls. It’s east facing so we get to enjoy the sun in the morning, and it’s blissfully quiet – the only thing you hear is the sea. TELL US ABOUT YOUR HOUSE It’s a 15th-century priory leading onto a secluded beach near Chichester in West Sussex, set in 30 acres of mixed woodland. I live there with my wife Lou, our four boys, Bruno, Noah, Tibo and Gabriel, and our two dogs. The children each have their own bedroom and bathroom – the house was used as a care home back in the 1970s, so all seven bedrooms have the luxury…
