hi there!

I don’t think interiors have ever been so interesting, or so varied! It feels like I see something new and exciting every day. It’s a long way from the ‘magnolia years’ when I started out in interiors magazines. I particularly love how trends have taken a back seat to home lovers going on a journey to find their look, based on their history, experiences and passions. This approach means that anything goes – as long as it’s meaningful to you. This issue is full of beautiful possibilities and I hope lots of them will make your heart skip a beat – from the new-but-nostalgic wallpaper from Graham & Brown on p10 to Suzanne Harmer’s stunning plywood bathroom on p90. As always, inspire others in turn by sharing your style wins…

high-street news

FANCY SOME NEO-MINT? No, not the latest in breath fresheners – this perky pastel colour is set to be big in interiors this year. The super-fresh shade features in Graham & Brown’s wallpaper of the year (above), lending a futuristic vibe to the traditional floral print picked from the brand’s extensive archives. It could be designer! Don’t get us wrong, we love a midnight blue kitchen as much as the next person – but it sure is a refreshing change to see some green! Not only are these Bodarp kitchen cabinet fronts from Ikea a gorgeous dusty shade with a smooth matt finish, but they are produced in factories that use renewable electricity. Plus, the front foils are made from recycled PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles – so they really are a green choice.…

create an expressive living room

1. Show off your wares Don’t forget an eccentric ‘objet’ or three – pick strong sculptural shapes, contemporary paint splashes or brush strokes. Mix up finishes – matt and textured with shiny and glazed. 2. Update your gallery wall Hang abstract, painterly pictures alongside graphic and linear prints. Black frames with white borders won't clash in a colourful room, and will help create a cohesive finish. 3. Go all out on cushions Elevate bold patterns and bright colours with luxe elements, try accents of marble and polished brass with smart fabric finishes like velvet and some embroidered, bright crewel work cushions. 4. Add accents Cushions, rugs, curtains and footstools make for an easy colour splash. The palette is a luxe take on mid-century – tangerine, sapphire, emerald and mustard, using blush and gold as a neutral contrast.…

come on in!

ABOUT ME I’m Rachel Kohler, 36. I run vintage furniture and upcycling shop @crazy_clutter and live here with my husband Jonathan, 32, who works in insurance, and children Mabel, four, and Bertie, two. OUR HOME A four-bed bungalow built in 1952, in Leigh-on-Sea. We moved here in November 2011. WHEN WE MOVED IN It hadn’t been touched since the 1970s! The inside needed a complete overhaul. AND NOW We’ve reconfigured the whole property. We’ve added bedrooms, enlarged the hall and created an open-plan living space. STYLE TIP Be creative. Repaint old fireplaces, add interest with panelling, and seek out accessories and furniture you love from second-hand and vintage shops.…
