HOUSE OF THE MONTH
Living in a new-build does not mean you have to sacrifice on personality. The owners of this modern north London townhouse rose to the challenge of turning a series of soulless white rooms into a colourful home oozing with character and warmth. Luxe fabric walls, oversized art, and - wait for it - a floor-to-ceiling mural creates a dramatic yet relaxing space.
There’s no room for subtlety in this month’s decorating story – it’s showtime! Let minimalism take a back seat and instead, turn your home into an eye-popping mix of tones and textures that will ensure it stands out from the crowd. Big it up with luxurious pieces, punchy wall patterns, life-size sculptures and a greedy serving of eccentricity, then add some more. And more.
HOT TRENDS FOR CLOAKROOMS
It may be the smallest room in the house, but your cloakroom can have the biggest impact. Because it tends to be a tiny space, it’s the one place in your home you can justify splashing out on those high-end tiles or <that> statement wallpaper you have been eyeing for months. So it’s time to get experimental. Whether it's Art Deco-influenced, bold botanical or high glamour, get ready to up the ante!
