TREND ALERT... vintage country

Give your home a traditional look, with a contemporary edge

The vintage country trend is a very simple style to achieve in your own home, and won’t date quickly, making it a very easy look to live with. Take a traditional country style, brought up-to-date with unfussy, clean designs, and team it with vintage florals, and fresh colours for a modern twist.

Choose pretty colours, such as pink, red or blue, varying from pastel through to deep and dusky, on classic designs, such as checks, tartans and stripes. Combine them with vintage florals, both cute and ditsy, and bold and blowsy. Keep it cosy with soft tactile materials and knitted finishes, and plenty of soft furnishings and layered accessories such as cushions and throws.

Finish off your scheme with a few fun details, such as woodland animals which are still hugely popular on the high street and are available in a wide range of home accessories. Look out for owls, hedgehogs and foxes…

About Your Home Magazine

Autumn is upon us once again and the nights are drawing in, so in this issue we’ve put together lots of great ideas to make your home super warm and cosy for the months ahead. On page 40 we’ve got some snuggly suggestions that will turn your bedroom into the perfect haven to hibernate in on those cold winter nights to come. Meanwhile, on page 36, we’ve scoured the high street for the best hardworking furniture that will help you make the most of the space in any room of your house. Few of us are happy with how much room we have in our homes, so these smart storage solutions will really make a difference. And don’t forget to look at our fantastic makeovers this month (p.24) for some inspiring ways to make your living room look gorgeous on a budget. If you’re hoping to cut back on your energy bills over the coming months, then make sure you check out our round-up of the best eco buys for your kitchen on page 48, while in our home improvement section (p.106) we take a closer look at which eco-friendly updates will really help you cut your carbon footprint as well as your fuel bills. If, like me, autumn leaves you longing for some comfort food when you come home from work, then take a peek at our wonderful warming recipe ideas on page 100. The mushroom, spinach, kale and sweet potato pie is scrumptious – and good for you too! What’s not to love? See you next issue.
