hi there!

If you’re wondering why I made no reference to how our lives have changed in my last letter, I should explain that because we work a long way ahead, COVID-19 was a far-off problem in China back then. And now, we’re hunkered down at home waiting for the storm to pass. The team and I send best wishes to you and yours. We’re still beavering away to bring you ideas, but you might have to scrapbook some for later as it’s possible we’ve featured things you can’t get hold of right now. We’re doing our best to keep up! If cooking is your lockdown comfort, check out our recipes (from p110). They’ve come from our professional Test Kitchen – when you see this logo, every recipe and product has been…

give a bedroom neo-deco glam

1. Put on the glitz Reflective surfaces like mercury glass lamps or vases and mirrored bedside tables will all add extra sparkle and glamour. Polished brass in place of chrome will add some warmth instead. 2. Try an oriental motif Evoke the jazz age with an Eastern decorative influence such as gingko, cherry blossom, cranes or hummingbirds on wall art and accessories. 3. Add something truly opulent Pile on the luxe textiles. Think silk-effect curtains, shimmering or high-pile rugs, and smooth cotton bed linen with velvet and quilted silk finishes. 4. Go for blush pink accents Rather than strong tones such as sapphire or emerald, aim for a soft and warm colour palette of pink and champagne. Combine with white for a restful finish that’s high in the style stakes. Delicate decadence GET THE LOOK Team polished finishes with…

come on in!

ABOUT ME I’m Lydia Elder, 30, a marketing manager. I live with my husband Peter, 29, an account manager, and our sons, Teddy, five, and Arlo, three. OUR HOME A four-bedroom, detached new build in Ebbsfleet, Kent. We moved here in July 2018. WHEN WE MOVED IN The kitchen and bathrooms were lovely, but the whole house felt stark. AND NOW I’ve overlaid the whites and greys with vibrant greens, blues and dusky pinks to warm things up. We’ve also added interest with modern panelling, artwork, wallpaper and leafy prints. STYLE TIP Use the same handful of colours and print styles all through your home to create calm and a sense of continuity.…

‘colour wasn’t on the cards’

Once our second son, Arlo, had arrived, Peter and I knew we’d simply outgrown our two-bedroom flat,’ says Lydia. ‘We were keen to put down roots somewhere, so we wouldn’t need to move again in a few years, and we were hoping to find a brand-new house with a garden. Our flat was a new build, too, which we’d bought off-plan, so we weren’t worried about choosing a property we’d never actually seen. Also, a house that didn’t need repairs or alterations, and where everything would be pristine, was very appealing to us. New build dreams There is plenty of new housing going up in this area, but you have to reserve your property before it’s actually built. We only had floorplans and dimensions to go on, so I really did my research…

doit! panelled wall

1 Choose the size and depth of stripwood depending on how far you want the design to stand out from the surface. Plan your pattern out on paper first, then use a stripwood length to sketch it directly onto the wall in pencil. 2 Keep your design simple so it doesn’t look too busy. To make cutting the edges straightforward, stick to 90-degree or 45-degree angles wherever two pieces of wood meet. Then, from the finished design sketch, you can work out how much wood you will need. 3 Cut each batten and attach to the wall with a strong, multi-use adhesive (No More Nails would work). Hold each strip of wood in place for up to 10 minutes to ensure it sticks. Then, fill any gaps and joins along the battens…
