TREND ALERT... Travellers treasure

Travel the world in the comfort, and style, of your own home this season

Collect the treasures and trinkets of a seasoned traveller, taking inspiration from all of the most beautiful cultures around the world. There are so many bold patterns to enjoy, from tribal and kelim weaves, to ikat tiedyes and Moroccan-inspired geometric designs. Take time looking for ornaments that tell stories in the form of carved animals, lanterns and world map motifs. Keep your space practical with a few chosen items you genuinely love, or which remind you of an exotic adventure, to give your look authenticity. Rustic wooden furniture, colourful throws and rugs in a palette of rich browns and terracotta will all create your own cultural, eclectic little world.

About Your Home Magazine

Hoorah! Summer is here and if, like me, the sunshine makes you want to spend as much time as you can outdoors, then I know you’re going to enjoy this issue. To begin with we’ve got some gorgeous creative projects on page 60 to give your garden the ‘wow’ factor. The cat planter is my favourite, it’s so cute! Meanwhile, on page 66, we show you how to make raised beds for your garden – perfect if you’ve always wanted to grow your own fruit and veg. For many of us, summertime makes us think of beds and borders brimming with colourful flowers, but there’s another important element that you should spend time getting right and that’s the foliage. Turn to page 114 for our guide to which leafy plants will give your garden year-round interest. But, of course, gardening isn’t all about planting and pruning, you should always make time to enjoy your hard work. So why not treat yourself to one of our favourite new garden furniture designs on page 44? Talking of new designs, we’ve gone all contemporary on our kitchen and bathroom pages this issue, from glossy kitchens (p.55) to super sleek suites (p.48), you’re sure to find a look you love. Meanwhile, if you’re thinking of updating your bedroom, look no further than this month’s makeovers (p.24), and if you’re trying to choose a new colour for your next decorating scheme then why not try this season’s hottest shade – Denim Drift? On page 36 we’ve got some great colour scheming ideas to make this gorgeous shade of blue work in any home. Finally, make sure you take a peek at our recipe pages this month, as we’ve got some delicious ways to cool down with frozen desserts and ice lollies (p.100).
