In the October issue of Homes & Gardens…

Inspiration, information and indulgence

The packed October issue of Homes & Gardens is coincides with London Design Festival to be all about design. Big names, big ideas and an even bigger schedule of events and showcases to see and do. We’re highlighting Autumn’s new mood with a pick of the season’s best new fabrics and wallpapers, and taking a look into the freshest new garden design trends.

It feels like a month of looking ahead whether that’s planning a renovation project and thinking about small updates you can make that offer a quick refresh. So with that in mind, the issue focuses on some suggestions of what to tackle, from the window treatments that make rooms feel ready for winter to a round up of the best – and most plush – new dining chairs.

And so once you’ve been through our edit of the best to see during London Design Festival in the main issue, you will love poring over our special kitchen and bathroom supplement, 32 pages of inspiring ideas, news and trends.



    • A brilliant portfolio of rooms created by some of the biggest names in design, from Rose Uniacke and Veere Grenney to Beata Heuman.
    • The perfect blend of old meets new in the modern penthouse designed by Paolo Moschino of Nicholas Haslam Ltd.
    • An inspiring gallery of new ideas for garden design.
    • A look around John Derian’s home in New York.



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, 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 they have created. The scheme I adore is Veere Grenney’s dreamy bedroom in the Hamptons.

There is also a wealth of projects, advice and ideas for kitchens and bathrooms in the supplement that comes with this issue. Enjoy!
