hi there!

I do love a weekend project and have a rolling list of ideas in a special notebook I’ve had for years, ever since transitioning from the ‘barsand-misbehaviour’ stage of life to the ‘joys of home’ one. The list ranges from the easy, ‘pottering’ level to the more ambitious type that’s going to involve tools and a bit of skill. There is literally no end to the ways you can improve your home, whether you rent or own, and the way it enriches your life is immeasurable. For example, take a look at what Ellie achieved by painting her kitchen units on p82. The simple pallet planter on p109 is going in my notebook – vertical planting’s the answer for my patio – and, while I’m at it, Gina’s bathroom on…

come on in!

ABOUT ME I’m Lisa Watts, 47, an interior designer, I live here with my husband Martin, 54, a builder and our dog, Meg. Our children are Jordan, 26 and Freya, 24. MY PROPERTY A four-bedroom house in Aberdeenshire, which we bought in 2007. It was built in 1996. WHEN I MOVED IN Each room was painted every colour of the rainbow – it looked garish and none of the spaces flowed together. AND NOW We tackled each room, one by one, and have created a calm, minimal interior, where I can indulge my love of old and new. STYLE TIP Think carefully about the layout of your home – make sure you have open, sociable spaces and cosy, private corners.…

The area was new to us, and we had only moved here as it was close to a great school for our two children, Jordan and Freya. In the meantime, my husband Martin wanted to focus on setting up his joinery business, plus we wanted to spend our time getting to know…

why it works

STYLE AT HOME SAYS… ‘The paper on the feature wall adds interest and depth, but ties in tonally for a calm vibe.’ FEATURES EDITOR Holly Walsh ‘Lisa’s used accents of dark slate grey to pull the kitchen diner together. Upcycling a vintage mirror by painting the frame to match the wall gives it a modern edge, and the mirror bounces light to maximise the feeling of space’ HOUSES EDITOR Ruth Corbett ‘Lisa’s bedroom has bags of character, despite its lack of architectural features, thanks to the layering of interesting textures, and painting all the walls a luxe grey for an immersive feel.’ DECORATING EDITOR Nicky Phillips ‘Every room has an unusual piece, which adds a fun element of surprise.’ EXECUTIVE EDITOR Heather Young…
