welcome

As Easter falls in April this year, that means we get a lovely long bank holiday weekend to enjoy this month. If you’re planning on using your time off for a spot of decorating, then I’m sure you’re going to find lots to inspire you in this issue. As spring is in full flow, you might want to give your rooms a verdant update to reflect the fresh greenery outside. If that’s the case, then check out this month’s trend alert on page 22 and be inspired by the Japanese tradition of ‘forest bathing’ to give your scheme a green and serene update. And with the longer, lighter days we’re having, now is the perfect time to switch up your window treatments and swap heavy curtains for lighter voiles and linens. Take…

Dances with the daffodils Nestled in the heart of the Lake District is Dove Cottage, the famous home of one of the world’s most-loved nature poets, William Wordsworth and his sister, the author and poet Dorothy Wordsworth. 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of William’s birth and to celebrate this milestone, the Wordsworth Trust has created Reimagining Wordsworth, a year-long programme of exhibitions and talks to inspire a greater appreciation for the poet. On his birthday, 7th April, Dove Cottage will reopen its doors to the public, where visitors will be transported back to the 1800s to see how the cottage would have looked during the pair’s lifetime.

LOFT LIVING I am so proud of our attic conversion. It wasn’t as straightforward as we initially thought, because we had to fully rewire unexpectedly, alongside all the mess and dust. Once completed, I upcycled the old pine coffee table using grey chalk paint to match the décor. My husband made the light from an old camera tripod found in my dad’s attic and a theatre light from eBay – a real bargain! We also added a bathroom to the conversion for a fully-functioning attic space. Angela Buckley, by email Your Home says Your attic looks amazing, Angela. Such a professional finish and the upcycled light is a great idea! ★ Angela’s letter has won her a Fairytale bouquet worth £45, courtesy of Bunches. Send us your projects and photos, and you could be next…

How to… spring clean your home Perhaps it’s a cliché, but springtime often calls for a big cleaning mission in the home. But whether you’re for or against this seasonal tradition, it’s been proven that a spick and span space usually equates to a tidy mind. So if you’re keen to do a little (or large) refresh, then follow our top tips to get the job done. If you’re a bit of a hoarder, you might want to start by decluttering. A general rule is that if you haven’t used or appreciated something in the past year, then it’s time to part ways. Try recycling or donating the items to charity to cut back on waste.
