HOW TO style the look 1 Playing with different tones of green is key to giving this look dimension. A splash of yellow or lime will brighten up a predominantly dark palette. 2 Introducing one or two houseplants to your bedroom will bring an element of calm to the room while complementing leaf-printed fabrics. If you’re notoriously bad at looking after real plants, why not pick up a faux one?

welcome to my home

A bit about me I’m Katie Lewis. I live here with my husband Ben, our daughters, Molly, 15, and Ellie, 5, and Meeks the cat. Where I live Home is a four-bedroom detached house in Lincoln, built in 2008. We moved here in 2010. What I wanted to change Inside it was bland with a cramped, gloomy kitchen and an old-fashioned arch into a dining area. The bathroom was dated and the upstairs split into small bedsit-type rooms. How I made it my own We extended to create a family-friendly layout with an open-plan kitchen-diner. I’ve introduced tranquil greens and greys with bright colourful pops, leafy plants and some unique, quirky touches. My favourite part All of it, except the bathroom, which I can’t wait to rip out!…

now our home works for us all

Dining area ‘It’s all about creating a calm, inviting atmosphere with a palette of tonal greens, greys and blues, warm natural wood, and lots of foliage’ Building the extension has turned a dark kitchen and an unin viting separate dining room into a bright, multipurpose, sociable space. ‘We were lucky to ÿnd an excellent local builder, K2 Developments, and the whole project was straightforward,’ says Katie. ‘It was a bit cold at times, as it was March, but we stayed in the house. Ben’s parents, who live nearby, were very kind and often fed us as we had nowhere to cook! The extension is only just over a metre wide but that extra space made a huge impac t. The glass doors let the natural light flood in and draw attention to…

what i learned...

• Houseplants are the easiest and most versatile accessories there are. They enhance wellbeing and soften any space. They’re also very useful for hiding unsightly things such as fuse boxes or marks on the walls. Faux plants look incredibly realistic and are great for dark corners or high shelves. • Individual touches are what make a house a home. I noticed various names had been scratched onto my old wooden Sunday school chairs over the years. I love that character and history, and anyone who comes to our home can add their name too. It means the chairs are still evolving and they’re unique and so personal to us. See homestylemag.co.uk for more great real homes…
