I would like to welcome you to the first issue of the new-look Period Homes, devoted to cosy living. I love loading up my woodburner for the first fire of the autumn.

The nights are starting to draw in, the evenings are getting cooler but you want to hold off turning on the heating for a few more weeks.

Nothing beats the enveloping warmth from a woodburner. According to a recent report*, sales of woodburners have risen by 300% in the past 12 months, which is no surprise when you consider that stoves give out five times as much heat as a regular fireplace and heat a far bigger part of the house.

We have expert advice on what you need to consider before you make your purchase (page 30), plus there’s a round-up of the best designs.

You can also enjoy getting creative as you recreate our seasonal makes (page 9), and be inspired by our 40-plus pages of reader homes.

Our decorating expert has come up with four snug colour schemes (page 84) plus we have more shopping pages than ever before if you’re looking to give your home a cosy update for the months ahead. I hope you’re inspired.
