how to style the look

1 Warm, earthy tones like mustard and dark orange will make your work space feel more inviting. Contrast these warm colours with a neutral background to make them stand out, and to keep a sense of cool professionalism for those Zoom calls! 2 Introduce plants at a range of levels, some desk height, some on the floor and some even hanging if possible. Studies have found that surrounding yourself with greenery can really boost productivity levels. 1 Turn your bathroom into a relaxing, tropical hideout with the use of natural textures like rattan and wicker. Hanging plants (real or fake) create a soothing, rainforest vibe. 2 Inject some exciting colour into the room with bold shades of blue and red. Animal-themed accessories and figurines add a playful touch too!…

i added pattern and colour to every room

‘I don’t decorate just to look good; the important thing is to have a comfortable home that we can enjoy living in’ MY STORY We’re only the second family to have lived in this house, so thankfully it was in great condition, and it was nice knowing that everything was in working order. It felt like a house we could put our own stamp on, and it was a bonus that all the rooms were plain as it gave me a blank canvas to work with. Being a new-build, we thought nothing big needed doing, but actually there was lots we wanted to do. I love a roaring fire, so the first thing on our to-do list was getting one installed. It was actually really easy as it went on an external wall…

welcome to my home

A BIT ABOUT ME I’m Sarah Gibbons-Poole, 35, a fashion merchandiser. I live with my husband, Chris Poole, 35, a digital IT manager, and our one-year-old daughter, Cleo Valentine. I Instagram our home updates at @step_into_no.17. WHERE I LIVE Our home is a detached four-bedroom house in Wickford, Essex. It was built in 2014 and we moved here in October 2016. WHAT I WANTED TO CHANGE Because it was a new-build, we didn’t have the renovation issues period properties often have, but the whole house was full of magnolia box-like rooms, so I needed to find ways to add lots of personality. HOW I MADE IT MY OWN We both love colour so we did a few practical projects straightaway. I then chose paints, fabrics and home-made crafts to add character, pattern and texture to each space. MY…
