I helped create my own graffiti-style bedroom

Louis Reynolds chose plenty of bright colours to create the coolest room where he can hang out with his friends

Before

Louis, Lisa Reynolds’ 11-year-old son, was desperate to add a bit of excitement to his bland bedroom. ‘It was just pale and boring and I wanted to jazz it up somehow,’ Louis explains. Lisa, who lives with husband Lee, and their two children, Louis, 11, and Sasha, 13, in South Woodford, East London, had just finished decorating the rest of the house and hadn’t planned on doing anything with Louis’ room as, despite being plain, it was in good condition.

A corner by the window is devoted to a desk with enough storage so there are no excuses now for late homework. A personalised print above adds another burst of colour

About Your Home Magazine

We’re halfway through the year now and summer is in full swing, so there’s no better excuse to get out into the garden. In this month’s issue we’ve got lots of great ideas to help make the most of your time outdoors. On page 36 we take a look at this year’s hottest trends for outdoor living. From classic country style to laid-back coastal blues and tropical brights, you’re sure to find a look you love that will help you create your perfect room outdoors. And, if you’re feeling creative, then try your hand at our brilliant upcycling project (p.62) which transforms an unwanted old bed into a gorgeous garden bench, or stitch up a storm and create our beautiful embroidered hanging storage pockets (p.64). If your beds and borders are looking a little lacklustre, then take inspiration from the latest trend from the RHS show gardens – elegant blue and white is the most beautiful colour combination to make your garden look truly stunning this summer (p.114). We’ve also got a simple step-by-step project (pardon the pun) to help you create a set of rustic log steps in your garden (p.66). The warmer weather also means most of us start to hanker after lighter, fresher meals, so we’ve rustled up some super salad recipes in this month’s food section. The roasted sweetcorn and halloumi salad is my favourite. Finally, we’ve also got some truly inspiring makeovers and real reader homes for you to take a peek at. Enjoy!
