The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness is upon us and, with it, our minds turn to hibernation and making our homes as cosy as possible. An easy addition is a new rug or runner and our colourful selection hits the right note perfectly. Our houses this month, from an exuberant Victorian B&B to a chic Parisian apartment, are brimming with individual style, and stylist Selina Lake suggest ways to add interest and warmth with natural textures. Elsewhere, we tell the story of tortoiseshell and reveal surprises about the humble breadboard. Plus, enjoy 48 hours in antiques hotspot Hastings.
