ERAS OF ELEGANCE

It's early days, but November's hit so far is this stunning interior from Roisin Lafferty. The gorgeous dusky pink and eau di nil shades, the dramatic bubble chandelier and the elegant furnishings add up to pure elegance.

ACCENT SHADES

Tastemaker, Suzy Hoodless shows us how to do accent colour. The primrose yellow around the architrave frames the rooms beyond and brings a cheerful boost to her beautiful living room. See more of Suzy's home and interior design style in our House Tours Open Door video series.

TREE OF LIFE

There's so much to take in here, from the incredible mural to the barely there built-in banquette seating, not to mention the soft tones and dramatic tribal art that pull it all together. An interior that manages to be sensational yet subtle at the same time.

Open the beautiful arched door from this neutral corridor to the guest bathroom and you step into a world of luscious palm prints and gorgeous green tones.

STILL LIFE

With much of life on pause and an abundance of banana bread baking, the kitchen came to the fore. What works, what doesn't. Is it time for an overhaul?  So the working area of this kitchen with its chic marble detailing masking the practical elements was a hit.

LOUCHE LOUNGING

We just loved the vibrant pink Lignet Roset Togo chairs and louche style of Lisa Dawson's living room - and so it seemed, did you. Retro, relaxed and uplifting all at the same time.

THE GREAT OUTDOORS

As the weather got warmer, and nature burst into full bloom, this was the month that the garden took priority. This decked terrace with its lounge area and dining zone took the No. 1 spot where outdoor inspiration was concerned.

ROOM WITH A VIEW

This gorgeous extension bridges the gap between indoors and out. The glazed roof light and glass wall ensure ample natural light and views of the garden. Designed by Beth Dadswell of Imperfect interiors, there is plenty of storage incorporated under the built-in benches too. 

See Beth's stunning home, in a converted Victorian dairy.

COOL AND CALM

Interesting, yet unsurprising, to note that the room that got us all swiping and liking in March was Athena Calderone's soft and serene living room. Its beautiful architectural bones have been decorated with layers of pale neutral tones and luxe textures that would cheer you up and calm you down.

BEAUTIFUL BASINS

Colour has stepped firmly into the bathroom and the range of beautiful basins on offer has expanded rapidly. If you're going to take the plunge this is how to do it. Against a backdrop of graphic Ca'Pietra Eclipse tiles and finished with gorgeous brass details.

INSIDE OUT

This was the year that the internal courtyard rose to prominence and it's easy to see why in this example from HGD Studio. Best planned at the initial design phase, to ensure interior and exterior flow.
