welcome to our july issue!

Window shopping gorgeous garden rooms has been my guilty pleasure this month after our recent move to a house with a well-kept lawn (lucky, I know) and a patio with potential. So far, I’ve treated myself to a couple of sunloungers so at least I can contemplate all of the renovations required indoors from a comfortable spot! You’ll find inspiration for your outdoor spaces in this month’s Decorator’s Moodboards on page 69, where we show you how to put together a classic cottagecore scheme, a colourful suburban jungle and a cool Scandi-inspired haven. Then, turn to page 82 for our bright ideas for outdoor lighting to help you create the perfect atmosphere once the sun goes down. As the mercury rises, our edit of the dreamiest new bed linen on page 76,…

i want my home to make a statement

‘Our homes should be a true reflection of ourselves – it’s key to how comfortable we feel in them’ MY STORY The house was in a state of neglect when we bought it. However, it had so much potential with its amazing high ceilings and tonnes of period features. I wanted an old property with a story, but I also wanted something that I could renovate to my taste, so it ticked all the boxes. The house was also in a great location. This part of east London has a real community feel, so I knew it would make a perfect family home. I had a clear idea of what I would do design-wise within five minutes of walking through the door. We lived with the space for a few years before any…

welcome to my home

A BIT ABOUT ME I’m Natalie Lee, the author behind lifestyle blog, Style Me Sunday, and founder of the Warrior Woman campaign.

Having an open space was really important for us as a family as my eldest daughter has a rare genetic eye condition…

plan a kitchen extension

Think about how you want to use your kitchen space. Do you want to include a dining and living area? Will it be your main space for socialising?

Have you always wanted a pantry space, island or a utility area of your own? Now’s the time to go for it and make the dream a reality. Get lots of quotes for the work. The more quotes you get, the better idea you’ll have of what the work should cost. Consider where you want to extend. Extending at the rear or side of your home could give you lots of extra space, or a side return…
