Ideal Home

Feb 01 2021
Magazine

Published by Time Inc. (UK) Ltd Ideal Home is Britain's best-selling interiors magazine and has been empowering home-owners to make the most of their properties for over 80 years. The magazine covers every aspect of contemporary living, from a wide range of transformed houses, kitchens and bathrooms.

Welcome

Set the scene for… A WEEKEND LIE-IN • Hit the snooze button, let the kids hop in with you, or watch a box set in bed. However you choose to savour the bliss of a slower start to your day, do it under soft, relaxed-looking linen sheets. Top with a textured throw for added snug factor.

The STYLE EDITOR • Michela Colling, Ideal Home’s tastemaker-in-chief, shares her top news from the high street

Surprise in store… ARGOS DINING SET • Pull up a pew on this modern country dining set. The space-saving design makes the most of a nook, while the bench seating maximises the number of bottoms on seats.

THE DESIGN EDIT • Now and then, the high street comes up with something so utterly fabulous it looks as if it’s come from a designer boutique. Here are some of our latest discoveries that will make your home look expensive without the big spend…

The Wallpaper Edit ART ON A ROLL • Why splash out on framed artwork when you can bring walls to life with beautifully illustrated papers – all for less than £50 a roll

IDEAL VS GREAT DEAL • Don’t make do when it comes to your work space! Get it fit for purpose with a stylish desk, comfy chair and super-smart storage

Modern history • Danielle and Simon King have sympathetically renovated a 17th-century farmhouse, combining modern day comfort with traditional country style

Make it work for you DANIELLE’S STYLE: RUSTIC LUXE • Polished metallics and sleek silhouettes contrast with natural rattan, aged leather and textured linen

COLOURS FOR CALM • Nothing has the power to set and change a mood quite like colour. Surround yourself in natural, nourishing shades that promote stillness and stress-relief with these decorating ideas…

Finding sanctuary • Louise Bradley has transformed her London townhouse into a peaceful urban retreat, with a seamless flow between indoors and out

Make it work for you LOUISE’S STYLE: COOL AND CONNECTED • Luxe, organic materials – such as marble, wool and antiqued brass accents – bring warmth to a classic room scheme

THE WELL-CURATED WALL SHELF • Make the most of open shelving with these clever styling tips and tricks that will help you turn cluttered collections into a smart and stylish display

Embracing grey • A unifying palette of greys has provided Monica Vedel Niclasen with a simple backdrop for dramatic super-sized lighting, gold details and the occasional pop of spicy colour

Make it work for you MONICA’S STYLE: POLISHED NEUTRALS • A relaxed décor and muted colour palette is given extra sparkle with luxe glassware, burnished metallics and standout pieces

MY GO-TO STORES…

SAGE GREEN • This month, our colour consultants give their views on this delicious shade and how to use it for a beautiful home

Where two styles meet • Fresh Scandinavian simplicity and vintage Moroccan elegance blend beautifully in Hakima el Majdoul’s carefully curated family home
