Free & Easy

Create the bedroom of your dreams with gorgeous free-standing storage and more

GET THE LOOK: classic traditional

Sticking to a traditional style when furnishing your bedroom is a simple way to achieve effortless class. a sophisticated, understated look will stand the test of time – so invest in key pieces you love, rather than splashing out on trendy furniture that might come and go from favour quickly.

We love this chest of drawers which is built from FSC-certified timber using traditional techniques for strength and style

Benefits of free-standing vs fitted

‘If you’re lucky enough to have a large bedroom, then you can use free-standing furniture to break up the space and even create different sections to your room. it’s also generally quicker to install than fitted furniture – which can be quite a long process. there’s very little or no waiting time with free-standing furniture – our pieces are handmade to order, to your specifications, in our ethical workshop in walthamstow and then delivered in a matter of days. be sure to purchase furniture that will complement and be in proportion to your bed, too – you don’t want a huge bed that dwarfs your furniture or vice-versa.’

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!
