editor's note

I am delighted to be able to announce the first-ever Homes & Gardens House Tours. On 10 and 11 October, we will be opening up six beautiful homes around Fulham, London. This is an event concept pioneered by our sister brand Livingetc, so I have already seen how brilliant the day is. It’s a unique chance to discover creative schemes in person and to meet designers behind beautiful homes. It truly brings the H&G experience to life; I hope to see many of you there. Looking through this issue as I write, I am struck that it is an uplifting one, full of passion, with fresh ideas and personal looks. All of the houses we show are bold in their own way and each has been painstakingly reconfigured by a visionary…

COUNTRY PURSUITS Thyme, the ‘village within a village’ at Southrop in the Cotswolds, has just about everything you need for a dream rural escape. And, along with the hotel, cookery school and spa, The Piggery homeware store is now open. Filled with one-off antique treasures and consciously sourced artisanal products inspired by Thyme’s land-loving ethos, you can now take away a fitting memento. PATTERN PLAY American designer Lindsey Lang loves her adopted home in London so much she has named her new tile collection Bermondsey.

Victoria Davar has a keen eye for 19th-century French and Swedish antiques, sold in her Lillie Road shop, and her feed on @maisonartefact – with floral abundance and restrained palettes – never fails to captivate us.

Who would you recommend we follow and why? @joannaplantinteriors for timeless, elegant interiors; sensuous beauty with a chic twist. And @minford_journal for covetable fashion and interiors, beautifully curated.…

Q Can you tell us a little about your background? I worked at Christie’s straight from university and then joined The Auction Room. Two years ago, I founded Partnership Editions, an online platform of attainable limited-edition pieces, with a mission to take art beyond the traditional gallery setting and into supper clubs, pop-ups, talks and workshops. “WE OPEN UP NEW WAYS TO EXPERIENCE ART BY INVITING COLLECTORS, ARTISTS AND COLLABORATORS INTO A RELAXED SPACE” Q How would you sum up your business? Curated affordable art for all. We aim to unearth accessibly priced original artwork by some of today’s most talented emerging artists. Partnership Editions is essentially a springboard for anyone looking to start or enhance their art collection. Since we began in 2017, the business has evolved and we now deal with editions…

wild blue yonder

It might seem unlikely, given her taste in antiques and curiosities, that Heidi O’Rourke once lived in a modern home. But finding her possessions and her suburban house discordant she decided, along with her husband Jason, to pursue her dreams of leading a more rural life in the wilds of the Australian bush. ‘I was ready for a more traditional farmhouse-style home,’ she says. ‘I was excited about it no matter what problems we might face.’ In 2008, after only one viewing, the couple bought a house on the north-western outskirts of Sydney, close to where they grew up. Much of the property’s allure came from its large two-and-a-half acre garden. ‘Although we compromised on the size of the house, which is smaller than our last place, the garden is much…
