hi there!

As the emotional rollercoaster of mid-pandemic life continues, we’re with you every step of the way. While we’re mindful not to keep harping on about it, the team and I see our role in the ‘new normal’ (whatever that is – personally, I haven’t got the hang of it yet…) as being here to supply you with a steady stream of deliciously doable ideas for the stuff you CAN control: beautiful possibilities for your home and different ways to enjoy simple pleasures that enrich the everyday. If you’re loving the hour or so of much-needed escapism that your copy of Style at Home provides, but hating the trip to the supermarket or newsagent to pick it up, then now’s the time to subscribe.

ORIGAMI FURNITURE It’s the Transformer of garden furniture. This clever bistro set will turn even the tiniest of outside spaces into an al fresco dining spot perfect for two. Simply swing the wall-hung table down and fold the hinged stools in to create a neat little bench – ideal for balconies and small courtyards. Wooden bench to bistro set, £80, Argos FRAMEABLE TEA TOWELS They may just be too pretty to use, but the Artist Tea Towel collection from Polkra can’t fail to bring happy vibes to the kitchen.

add fresh country style

1. Have a hero piece in blue Add a bolder touch to a soft scheme of traditional country neutrals with a statement dresser, sideboard or pendant shade in a modern grey-blue hue. 2. Mix natural textures Gentle colour schemes can look flat, so elevate your country look with cushions and rugs in a variety of smooth, woven and tufted finishes in a palette of blues and off-whites. 3. Hang vintage style artwork Display a mix of painterly still lifes and landscapes to create a cosy, seaside tea-shop vibe. Mix charity-shop frames for an eclectic look. 4.

Keep it classic with blue and white, or go rogue with bold scarlet or soft grey stripes. Rustic retreat GET THE…

ABOUT ME I’m Chloe Roberts, 34, a commercial manager. I live here with my husband Adam, 37, who works in marketing, and our son Hector, two. OUR HOME An Edwardian four-bed semi-detached house in east London. We moved here in 2017. WHEN WE MOVED IN We loved the location, but the layout felt dark and disjointed, and didn’t work for us. AND NOW We’ve created an open-plan kitchen, dining and living space that’s now the hub of the home.
