This Month

Are you a fiend for the latest home trends? Do you prefer classic style or are brave you enough to put whatever you like in your rooms, no matter what anyone else thinks? The psychology of how we approach home design is shifting, I believe, as we fill our kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms with ideas, features, and pieces that truly mean something to us. The result: spaces that, to me at least, are much more interesting, have a story to tell, and show off the world of those who live there in the best light, without any concern for keeping up with the Joneses. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing the new season trends come in as summer changes to autumn and winter gives way to spring – but rather than adopt a whole new look, I often prefer to pick out the small best bits that can easily be changed when the next big thing comes around. Whether that be a cushion in a maximalist print, a new bedspread, or an accent piece of furniture to update my scheme. A latest addition is a shapely terracotta velvet armchair, which has added a refreshed feel to my living- diner. But when it comes to larger investments, such as a new kitchen or bathroom, we really must go with what we love now and will still enjoy in years to come. The aim is to transcend the trends while still having a home that is fit for modern functions and suitable for how you use it day to day. But, crucially, it is to do what you love with your space and introduce styles that you will enjoy looking at time after time. This issue, pick and choose your favourites from our AW19 roundup, shop easy updates for your bedroom, and read all about the trend I think we should all get on board with: wellbeing and how our homes can boost it. Me? I’m aiming to be brave with my décor choices, trendy or not.

Enjoy the issue, Lindsay
