hi there!

This issue is a celebration of the little things – because it’s the small changes that can have the biggest impact on your home. From my proudly DIYed super-wide bifold door curtains (I stitched seven sale-bargain linen curtains together), to my unapologetically yellow living room walls and chalk-painted bedside tables, these things make me smile more than the spendy, functional stuff. If it’s the spendy, functional stuff you’re interested in, there’s plenty of that, too (check out our inspiring kitchen and bathroom makeovers, for example). But, if you’re in the market for some quick, fun projects to ring the changes, you’ll find a feast of ideas for your Pinterest boards. Don’t forget to share the results – you might make our wall of fame (p122)! SEND US YOUR STYLING SNAPS ON…

create a graphic living room

1. Pick pale wood pieces For occasional furniture or even a pendant light, wood such as light oak or plywood is the way to go. Not only is it a way to warm up the palette, but it also taps into the modernist trend that this look is inspired by. 2. Lay a graphic-design rug Think simple arcs, big brush strokes or bold paint effects. There’s nothing subtle about this style, so when it comes to prints on cushions, rugs and art, the bigger the better! 3. Add blackprintcushions Use black as the main colour, whether on the walls or in accessories. It adds to the graphic nature of this look, and also acts as a contrast to the vibrant, punchy colours like orange, cobalt blue and pink. 4. Go for a playful piece Don’t take this…

ABOUT ME I’m Jade Hutton, 28, a make-up artist, and I live with my fiancé, Christian Watkins, 28, a building surveyor and carpenter, and Hector, our Italian greyhound. I have an interiors Instagram account @no14hectorshouse. OUR HOME A three-bed Edwardian end-of-terrace near Huddersfield, which we bought in August 2016. WHEN WE BOUGHT IT The layout needed a complete rethink, a new bathroom and kitchen were a must, and it required redecorating. AND NOW We’ve knocked down walls, added an extension at the back to give us a large kitchen and decorated throughout with a modern-country look. STYLE TIP Choose one neutral paint colour for the walls and use it throughout your home. It makes decorating so much easier and creates calming cohesion.…

‘everyone got stuck in to help’

Determined to save up a decent deposit so I could buy my first home with my fiancé Chris, I was the last of my friends to leave home,’ says Jade. ‘Our family and friends are all local, so we knew we wanted to stay in the area, and because we are both fairly handy we were happy to wait for the perfect doer-upper to come along. Once we’d saved up enough, it took us four months to find this place. It was a bit of a wreck when we first saw it, but we could see straight away that it had potential. The decor was really old-fashioned, with floral carpets and brightly painted walls in every room, but there was lots of space, which for us was the most important thing.…
