Ideal Home

Jul 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… LAWN LOUNGING • On a hazy summer’s day, stock up on drinks and snacks and pile the grass with cushions, throws and lighting – that way morning can drift into afternoon, or the post-work chillout roll on until dusk, without you having to move a muscle.

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

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…

HERO CUSHIONS • Give your sofa, bed or favourite armchair a boost with a statement scatter, or three!

IDEAL VS GREAT DEAL • Create a relaxed, laid-back vibe indoors and out with comfy seating, cosy textiles and soft lighting

SUMMER MEADOW • Create a restful ambience with wallcoverings depicting colourful wildflowers, swaying grasses and delicate cow parsley

Marrying old and new • Julia and Sasha renovated this Edwardian bungalow, preserving the old but improving it with the best contemporary design ideas

Welcome to my home

THE NEW MONOCHROME • The timeless combination of black and white remains a classic – and is inherently chic – but for a softer, more casual take on the palette, mix it up with natural materials and raw textures

CREATE A… STORAGE WALL • Bring some order to a family space

Closer to nature • Marjolijn and Misja Lievers swapped their home near a motorway for a village house hidden among trees, which they extended and decorated to work with its beautiful location

Make it work for you MARJOLIJN’S STYLE: COSY SCANDI • A mix of old and new styles with Nordic-inspired design at its heart creates a distinctive and welcoming scheme

GARDEN WALL STORAGE • Transform a wooden pallet into a rustic display

WAYS WITH WALLPAPER • It’s not just walls that can benefit from a wallpaper makeover – give furniture or a staircase a revamp, or even create your own bespoke wall art with eye-catching patterns

Feel the love • Trish Thomas and Dan Ellitts have breathed new life into a run-down Victorian villa, turning a warren of bedsits into a characterful home full of light

Welcome to my home

Make it work for you TRISH’S STYLE: CURATED COOL • White walls and open shelves create a blank canvas for a considered collection of artwork, furniture and finds

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

THE EDIT: SOFT BLUES

Barefoot luxe • Teresa and Anthony Ralph transformed an overgrown plot into a magical coastal haven for their beach-loving family

Welcome to my home

Make it work for you TERESA’S STYLE: MATERIAL MINIMALIST • Lush green and polished brass accents contrast raw yet sleek formations of wood and concrete
