Marcelle Bolt, 43, husband Ashley, 40, and children Evie, eight, and Fin, six, moved to their period home in the summer of 2015. ‘We had been living in a tiny two-bedroom cottage and needed more space so when this beautiful three-bedroom Victorian property came on the market that was literally opposite our cottage we had to take a look. It was everything we wanted – light and airy with high ceilings and period features and although it needed a coat of paint everywhere, we fell in love with it immediately,’ says Marcelle. ‘When we moved in, we loved that we could all spread out in the living room as this wasn’t possible before in our tiny house.

I wanted a room that showed off the room’s size and beauty with a grown-up feel.’

About Your Home Magazine

At last we can kiss goodbye to the dark, dreary days of winter and look forward to the lighter, brighter days of spring. Easter comes early this year, so to celebrate we’ve put together some scrummy recipe ideas that are perfect if you’re having family and friends over during the Easter weekend (p.100). And, if you want to make it extra special, why not try your hand at our beautiful Easter craft projects to decorate your dining table too (p.60)? If you’re planning to make the most of the long bank holiday weekend with a spot of decorating, make sure you take a look at our brilliant eight-page spring trends forecast on page 36. We’ve picked the five hottest looks from the high street, so whether you’re drawn to laid-back coastal blues, eye-popping tropical brights or calming candy colours, you’re sure to find some inspiration for your new colour scheme. Sick of waiting for your other half to do the decorating? Then turn to page 66, where we’ll guide you step by step through the basics of tiling. I know the bank holiday is the time of year when many of you are ready to get back out in the garden. So on page 114, you’ll find our suggestions for which plants to include in your beds and borders to guarantee your garden is full of colour all year long – yes, even in winter! Finally, if like me, your pets are important members of your family, then make sure you read our low-down on pet insurance on page 18. Your furry friends will thank you!
