TREND ALERT... heritage

Give your home a fresh take on a traditional style

Background wallpaper Heathland from Moorland collection by Iliv, £48 per roll, Wallpaperdirect.com

Celebrating traditional craftsmanship and British design, the heritage trend is brought up-to-date by mixing pieces of the past with classic furniture and contemporary colours for a fresh look.

Inspired heavily by the prints and colour palettes of the Arts & Crafts movement, and flowing, organic lines from the Art Nouveau era. Flora and fauna, and William Morrisstyle prints give an eclectic feel, while embroideries, tapestry and quilts add a folky touch, built upon with hand-crafted art and accessories.

The colour palette you choose for your scheme should create a warm and cosy atmosphere, using, rich, intense hues. Think of traditional fir green, with red and purple berry colours; indigo blue with mushroom shades, or a bolder scheme of emerald green and teal with cranberry. Whatever scheme you go for it should be elegant and timeless, with a few artisanal surprises…

About Your Home Magazine

I know that November isn’t everyone’s favourite month, but I think there’s something rather cosy about coming home on a cold, dark night and curling up on the sofa in front of the fire. If you’re thinking of investing in a wood-burner to warm up your home this winter then turn to page 115, where we’ve got the low-down on the latest models and what you need to consider before you buy. Talking of making your home warm and toasty, do take a look at George Clarke’s column this month, where he shares his expert advice on insulating your home (p.111). Of course nothing beats, a tasty comforting supper on those chilly November nights – so do try our delicious recipe suggestions on page 100, packed with warming spices! I know many of you are keen to be braver when it comes to using pattern in your home, so on page 36 we show how to make it work for you, from balancing scale to creating the illusion of space and, of course, our pick of the latest designs for wallpapers and fabrics to inspire you. Many of us dream of living in a period property with gorgeous plasterwork and beautiful fireplaces, but in reality many of them have had their original features removed or damaged over the years. In this month’s home improvement feature, we take a look at what steps you need to take to restore your period home to its former glory and where to look for affordable, original materials (p.106). Happy decorating!
