Homes & Antiques' February issue is out now!

The February issue of Homes & Antiques is out today!

Behold! The Homes & Antiques small spaces special is out today, packed full of tips to inject personality into homes of all shapes and sizes. 

Inside, we turn our attention to the instantly recognisable world of Piero Fornasetti and show you how to introduce his colourful and surreal designs into your own home. For some truly outstanding collections, arranged in a petite city home, don't miss a peek inside Otto Martin's intriguing and atmospheric Victorian-inspired home on page 72. 

Plus, although we all know that terraces, flats and cottages have their charms, the luxury of space is often not among them. In this issue, Kate Watson-Smyth outlines how to unlock every inch of space in your home using antiques, wallpaper and colour.  

As usual, H&A is packed with specialist antiques advice. Our columnist, Salvage Hunter Drew Pritchard, is back with more sage suggestions, this time on how to pick up original pieces of industrial design, while BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Paul Atterbury expounds on the gothic revival work of Augustus Pugin.

You'll also find a list of the best antiques and vintage fairs to visit in February, a look inside the smallest property we've ever featured in our Open House series, A La Ronde, and top tips for buying antiques online. 

The February issue of Homes & Antiques is available in shops and in digital format now


Fornasetti: wonder and whimsy

Instantly recognisable and endlessly beguiling, the timeless mid-century work of Piero Fornasetti has enjoyed a revival in the last 30 years. We look at how he took the ordinary and made it extraordinary.  



Modelling the past  

Meet Timothy Richards, the craftsman keeping alive the centuries-old practice of producing exquisitely detailed architectural models of some of the world's most important buildings. 




Small is beautiful 

As the world's population grows our houses are getting smaller, but this isn't necessarily something to lament. Kate Watson-Smyth explains that with a touch of furnishing ingenuity, you can make the most of your bijou spaces. 


Daring to be different  

We visit A La Ronde in Devon - the smallest English property we've ever featured in our Open House series - and enter the imaginative world of two remarkably independent and creative Regency women,  Jane and Mary Parminter.  


The warp and the weft  

Such is the amount of conservation work, The National Trust's textiles team will be busy until 2022. Studio manager, Maria Jordan, reveals the intricacy of the skill involved in our latest interview series The Restorers.
