hi there!

What’s on your bucket list for 2020? Maybe you’ve got a big project in mind, like a kitchen or bathroom redo, repainting your bedroom or picking a paper for a flamboyant feature wall. Or, perhaps you’re only up for a bit of a scatter cushion switch-up! Either way, you’ll find lots of beautiful possibilities in this issue, from the out-there (check out Sharon’s moody-colour-filled home on p30) to the classic (see Darren’s gorgeous country kitchen on p84). If you’re thinking more in terms of a big holiday rather than a big home-improvement project, do take a look at thecaribou.com. It’s a new site for people who love to travel by people who love to travel. It specialises in luxury, family and activity holidays to give you all the inspo you…

come on in!

ABOUT ME I’m Sarah Brooks, 39, a lawyer, and I live here with my husband Gareth, 40, also a lawyer, and our two children, Charlie, 11, Daisy, nine, and our dog Betsy. I have an interiors Instagram account @hearts_at_claremont OUR HOME A four-bed Edwardian semi in the Wirral Peninsula. We moved here in September 2015. WHEN WE MOVED IN The kitchen was split into two small rooms and the whole house felt really unloved. AND NOW Painting everything white has brightened the house and changing the kitchen layout means it now works perfectly for family life. STYLE TIP Do as much decorating yourself as you can.

‘this house embraces you!’

Before moving here we lived in a Victorian maisonette, but when the children came along, slightly earlier than planned, we needed more space,’ says Sarah. ‘We wanted to find our dream home, but didn’t want to rush things, so we sold up and moved into a rental property until we could find somewhere that ticked all the boxes on our wish list. We wanted something Edwardian in style, classic and timeless, and with a decent-sized garden, and in the end it took a year of searching, with a few lost properties along the way.
