Add an exotic feel to your home with this Moroccan-style wedding blanket

Traditionally, handiras (or wedding blankets, as they’re often known) are woven by Berber women in the mountains of northern Morocco in preparation for a wedding. It can take weeks of work to complete, during which time the female family members will school the bride-to-be on the intricacies of marriage. Our DIY version is a tribute to these beautiful blankets.

1 Begin by mapping out your design. Lay the blanket out flat on the floor, and place the trims onto it, experimenting with different designs. The meterage we’ve supplied above will be enough to add four stripes of each trim – simply add or subtract to suit.

About Your Home Magazine

We love nothing better than a nice brew in the Your Home office, so you can imagine how excited we were testing out the latest tea and coffee machines for this issue. Whether your favourite is a cappuccino, a double espresso or a good old Earl Grey, we’ve found the best machines for the job so you can enjoy coffee shop quality in your own home (p.52). September is the time of year when the weather starts to change and we begin to spend more time indoors once more. So in this issue we’ve put together a round-up of the latest interior trends on the high street to make your home look its cosy best over the coming months (p.36). For even more inspiration, turn to page 20 to discover our pick of the latest accessories and homewares to give your rooms an elegant on-trend oriental look. And, as always, we’ve got plenty of inspiring makeovers – this month we’ve got three stunning living rooms (p.24), and beautiful reader homes (p.73) to give you plenty of affordable ideas to recreate in your own home. Your garden may be looking a little jaded now autumn is creeping in, but this is the perfect time to plan ahead to ensure it’s bursting with colour in the spring. On page 114 you’ll find all you need to know about which bulbs to plant for a riot of spring colour next year, as well as some unusual varieties to try too. Last, but not least, do check out our quick and easy supper recipes (p.100), the fish finger pie is my new guilty pleasure!
