hi there!

The ultimate antidote to grey skies and anxious vibes has to be (no, not gin!) the simple pleasures of home. From its very first issue in 2011, Style at Home has been all about that – with absolutely no snobby style judgements or directives allowed. So, if you want to have leopard-print tableware (p13), dark blue living room walls like Adele (p46) or a display of beautiful wooden chopping boards in the kitchen (p100), then just do it – and love it! It’s your happy place. There’s so much inspiration to be found in everyone’s home, we’d love to see yours – so get in touch if you’d like your home to be featured in these pages or share your ideas for styling and makes with the Style at Home…

Work in a berry accent A low band of paint will make your living space feel super-cosy, without making the room feel smaller. Try a warm, rustic red and echo it on cushions and throws. 4. Lay a smart rug Avoid tufted or flat-weave designs, which have a more informal look. Instead, go for a low-pile wool rug in a neutral tone to boost your room’s warmth and elegance in just one buy.

AND NOW We gutted it, installing a new kitchen, removing all of the carpets and transforming it completely by decorating in a soothing monochrome palette.
