We’ve named October ‘the design issue’. I wanted to champion the talents that appear in its pages. To create this month’s edit, we have collaborated with some of today’s most exciting names. The houses include retail guru Chrissie Rucker’s serene London home by Rose Uniacke (page 32), a city penthouse by Paolo Moschino and artist John Derian’s fabulously moody NYC apartment. And in the back section, we further our celebration of high style by asking seven industry leaders to share the secrets behind a space that they have created (page 151). The scheme I adore is Veere Grenney’s dreamy bedroom in the Hamptons. You may notice we haven’t covered kitchens and bathrooms. That is because there’s a wealth of projects, advice and ideas for these rooms in the supplement that…

UP THE WALL Custodians of a vast archive of block prints, the design studio at Cole & Son delved into the past for The Pearwood Collection, named after the fruit wood block originally used by their founder, John Perry.

RAISING THE BAR Take time out from the show for a chat around the Decorex Bar. Designed by Fran Hickman and made from building by-products, her concept prompts us to think about the nature of waste. As well as considering how the materials were used in the past, she looks to the future when the bar can be reimagined again.

Q Can you tell us a little bit about your background? I was making paintings from a young age, but originally planned to study architecture. After school I worked for an architectural practice, drafting plans, which was a skill I learned from my mum who was also an architect. Working there put me off a bit as it seemed as though there was zero creativity, which isn’t true but it bored me stiff. So I enrolled on an art course instead. I studied fine art in Newcastle, then I did an MA in fine art at Central Saint Martins. Q Were you always creative? Yes. I grew up on a farm and my parents were quite practical, so my dad would get frustrated by my unusual furrow patterns when I was ploughing, or…
