Simple, fresh, pared-back, clean and uncluttered – all words that perfectly describe how I want my home to feel, as I leave the excess of the festive season behind. I’m sure many of you feel the same! That’s why in this month’s issue of House Beautiful, we’re favouring an altogether calmer approach to living, with soothing textiles and touch-me fabrics (p30) and fresh-yet-subtle colour schemes (p24) to create looks that are as easy to live with as they are beautiful. It’s also the right time of year to shed light on the role that our homes can play in helping us to live more healthily. In the first of our new series on wellness in the home (p122), we hope to inspire you with ways to make your bedroom a relaxing haven…

SMALL SPACE HERO Make the most of every inch with these retro-style storage lockers launched by Mustard. They come in two slimline sizes: Shorty, £129, which is perfect for nestling under stairs and shelving, or as a bedside cabinet; and Skinny, £199, ideal for slotting into narrow spaces. To make them even more useful, add the handy metal baskets (£39 for three), which are designed to slide seamlessly onto the shelves or stow neatly underneath and on top of the lockers.

Founded by Neil Honor and Jonathon Pegg in 2011, online interiors emporium Catesbys started life as a modest boutique on the Norfolk coast. Today, it’s supported by a monthly pop-up store at the couple’s home in Exton, Rutland. We spoke to Neil and Jonathon to find out more WHAT SETS CATESBYS APART FROM OTHER INTERIORS SHOPS? Whether you visit us online or here in Rutland, we want it to feel like you’re visiting friends with (hopefully) good taste, where almost everything you see is for sale or available to order. Over the years, that has led to some interesting moments, such as the Christmas we spent perched on a couple of uncomfortable chairs because a customer fell in love with our sofa and couldn’t wait for one to be made to order!

HOW DID YOU FIND ALL THE WONDERFUL WOVEN PRODUCTS THAT YOU HAVE ON YOUR SITE? My husband and I moved to Yangon, the capital of Myanmar, in 2014 with his job, and at weekends we’d go out exploring the country. The markets there are filled with traditional woven pieces handmade by craftspeople and I bought a fantastic selection of them for our flat. Friends and family kept asking us to find the same pieces for their own homes in the UK, so I decided to set up a website where I could curate these beautiful wares from markets all around Myanmar and make them available to an international market. WHAT DOES KALINKO MEAN? It derives from the name of a tribe – Kalinkaw. There’s a region in the north west of Myanmar called Chin…

WINNING LOOKS Graham & Brown has unveiled its colour and wallpaper of the year for 2019, and they’re both fabulous. Tiru, a calming yet dramatic mid-toned blue, is a step away from the safety of neutrals, but retains a sense of serenity. The partner wallpaper is equally stunning. Named Tori, which means bird in Japanese, it features a hand-painted Eastern-inspired spring blossom and bird design that will bring a beautifully lavish look to any scheme. SWATCH BOOK ‘A great option for introducing a pop of colour into a neutral scheme, teal is a wonderfully versatile and uplifting shade.’ HB’S AMY NEASON…
