hi there!

Coming out of summer-holiday season and heading into autumn always feels like a bit of a reboot. Not on the New-Year scale, but definitely a need for a shake-up – a new pair of winter boots; a new exercise class; a new recipe to try and new things for my home! I always focus on my bedroom and living room at this time of year – switching to my high-tog duvet and folding a blanket at the end of the bed, swapping cotton cushions for velvet and wool, getting creative with clusters of tea lights… Whatever room is on your mind right now, you’ll find lots of project inspo in this issue, from the essential (i.e. potentially stressful) redos to the fun stuff (making autumn wreaths, p106; spooky Halloween decs,…

The streamlined collection of eight classic and modern shapes comes in contemporary colours, in wool, leather and linen look or velvet.

Marble has been firmly in the home decor spotlight for some time and shows no sign of departing, but now other members of the rock group are joining the party, too. Agate and rose quartz are like marble’s prettier cousins, featuring shades of pink, lilac and sky blue and even bringing glittering golds into the mix.

ABOUT ME I’m Lorna Syson, 33, and I’m a printed textile designer and owner of my own online store. I live with my husband Neil, 32, a surveyor and our dog Jenkins. MY HOME A three-bed post-war maisonette in southeast London. We bought it in March 2013.
