We were inspired by our travels abroad

Kelly Tomassi redesigned her bedroom with rich colours and ethnic touches to remind her of happy holidays
The deep blue wall contrasts with pale tones and ethnic patterns for a global fusion styled bedroom

Total Cost £327

Good idea!

A dark colour can give real impact – one wall won’t overpower a small room.

Kelly Tomassi, 29, her husband Lance, 30, and new daughter Ella-Mae, four-months, live in a three-bedroom cottage in Hillingdon, Middlesex. When they moved in, the couple decided the main bedroom would be made ready for their first child as it was large enough to double up as a playroom in time to come. It also had generous built-in wardrobes that could store their clothes, meaning the adults’ bedroom could be kept clutter-free. ‘Although it meant we’d be in a smaller room, all the baby’s things could be kept together rather than being strewn across the house. I also liked the idea of being in a cosy space without the need for wardrobes and drawers, then our bedroom would feel calm and stay tidy,’ smiles Kelly. When it came to the décor, Kelly wanted to be surrounded by memories of a worldwide trip she’d made. ‘I’d picked up trinkets on my travels and had some nice photos and I decided to use these as a base for my scheme,’ she explains.

About Your Home Magazine

I’m hoping that as you read this the sun is shining and you’re sitting out in the garden and getting truly into the summer spirit. But knowing how fickle our weather can be, you may be sat on the sofa watching the rain on the window pane. I hope it’s the former not the latter! Anyway, we’re looking on the bright side in this issue and have packed it with lots of feel-good summer ideas for you and your home. On page 44 we take a look at the latest barbecues and outdoor pizza ovens to make your summer get-togethers go with a swing. While on page 100 we’ve put together some zingy recipes that make the most of summer’s refreshing citrus flavours (the citrus-marinated lamb steaks are ideal for popping on your barbie!). The seaside is a big trend on the high street this summer, so on page 20 we explain how to give your décor a classic nautical feel, and on page 54 we’ve pulled together a whole host of affordable finishing touches to give your bathroom a relaxing coastal look. We’ve even got a gorgeous sparkling fish cushion project on page 64 to complete the watery theme! If you love being in the garden at this time of year, turn to page 114 to discover this year’s hero plant, the Cosmos, it’s so easy to grow and provides oodles of flowers to cut for the house. Finally, you must try making our gorgeous garden veg-inspired table decorations on page 60, they’ll make the ideal finishing touch to your summer garden parties.
