About Homestyle

With April showers casting a cloud over outdoor activities, now is the perfect time to give your home some well-deserved attention. If you don’t think you have the pennies to spare, think again, as we bring you eight whole pages of savvy updates for every budget, starting from £20 or less. Turn to page 63 to get cracking. If the sun does make an appearance, Pippa Jameson is on hand with three stunning looks for stylish spring dining on page 92. Plus, flick over to page 73 for plenty of fresh, seasonal recipes to be prepared – and devoured – in a jiffy. Got your eye on your dream home or struggling to pin down ‘the one’? Don’t miss our essential guide to house hunting, including tips and tricks for getting yourself at the top of the estate agent’s call list, plus five top apps to streamline your search, all on page 98. What’s more, we’ve enlisted colour expert, Jane Cumberbatch, to demystify the meaning behind your colour schemes and which hues you should be using to help you achieve your goals, feel more relaxed and get energised. And for those of us who can’t resist a peep behind closed doors, we invite you inside seven real homes for your monthly hit of décor inspiration, shopping ideas and easy DIY projects.
