How to use in your home PATTERN

If ditching those safe plains for the latest patterns and prints seems a little daunting, then check out our handy guide to getting it right!

GETTING STARTED

Talking To Myself original canvas, by Carolynne Coulson, £85, Artfinder

Accessorise in an instant

Accessories such as ceramics, lights, and even artwork, are a quick and easy way to experiment with the latest pattern and colour combos without fear of making expensive or more permanent mistakes. Try pepping up tired schemes using a single bold statement design, or look to groupings that adhere to an overall theme to ensure a cohesive finish.

Floral shade, £19, Very

Pick up on paint

Fantastic for a dramatic yet economical update, paint can be applied to any surface and will add an immediate focal point to featureless rooms, as well as rejuvenate tired walls or furniture. Always look to work with any existing pattern or colour, then tape out on-trend geometrics and colour blocks, apply decorative stencils or simply dare to go freehand!

Off Beat Triangles cushion, £15; Alpha rug, from £32; Off Beat rug, from £35; Teddy table, £39; triangle shelf, £89; Hana three-seater sofa, £499; bulb lamp, £25, all Very

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!
