    Country Days, Country Homes & Interiors, HalloweenDespite the rumour in the UK newspapers last week, Country Days was happy to find that lots of local pumpkins had been harvested in time for All Hallows’ Eve. In the Sussex countryside, the traditional activities to mark this ancient Christian festival of remembering the dead was much in evidence. Pumpkin carving, apple bobbing and ghost story telling were enjoyed by young and old on a clear and moonlit night.

    Wallpaper craft

    Style up you cupboards with wallpaper following Country Homes and Interiors blog instructions

    Add colour to cupboards and shelves with a clever bit of wallpaper craft. A bright and jolly wallpaper can transform the inside of plain storage be it a bookcase, dresser or pigeon holes and, for those who like to follow the latest looks, can be easily updated to keep up with the times. This cheery shelving unit features in our December issue and the wallpaper (Meway 210451 Terracotta, £51 per roll, William Morris) was picked to compliment the collection of ceramics. Simply measure and trim the paper to fit the spaces and secure to the back of each shelf space with a little watered down wallpaper paste or even double-sided tape. Ribbon trimmings and robin swags add to the charm too.
