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 GARDEN PARTY • Raise a glass to long summer days, warm evenings, and the chance to finally get together with much-missed friends and family. Stock up the drinks station in advance so you’re free to kick back and enjoy the party!

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...

Best of both worlds • Roos and Rick Koevoets discovered that moving to the suburbs means you can reach the pleasures of town, as well as the coast and country (and find a new career…)

Welcome to my home

Make it work for you ROOS’ STYLE: SIMPLY SCANDI • This expert execution sees streamlined curves and simple lines with a palette of soft grey and pastel shades

Thinking big • John Carver and Anna Carloss found an uninspiring 1990s bungalow and saw its potential to become something amazing – a place for family living, but also for their business and social life

Welcome to our home

Make it work for you JOHN & ANNA’S STYLE: ECLECTIC RETREAT • Rustic wood finishes and tactile leather with splashes of green are teamed with industrial pieces to create a cosy hideaway
