I’ve waited so long to have a home of my own

After a decade-long wait, Keeley Wilson finally has a home to call her own, with a lounge that’s bursting with creativity

My room...

A bit about me

Hi, I’m Keeley Wilson, and I live with my partner, Alan, and our children, Archie, eight, and Violet, five, in a two-bed 1930s house in Hampton.

This is our first house and, having rented for 10 years or more, I was really keen to put my stamp on our own place. The existing décor was easy to live with but dated and not to our taste – the only thing we loved was the ceiling.

About Homestyle

Is it just us, or is autumn an awkward time of year? Don’t get us wrong, it’s pretty as a peach, but we’re still sulking about the sorry excuse for a summer that snuck past, and while we’re (obviously) excited for the impending festivities of Christmas, we’re just not quite there yet. So this year, the HomeStyle team have resolved to embrace the autumn months and all they have to offer. We’ll be donning our best leaf-crunching boots and shopping for the fluffiest blankets to run home and curl up in. In fact, if you’re thinking of indulging in something similar, you’ll love the three cosy living room looks we’ve rustled up (p.66) – they’re suitably snug, and are sure to get you excited for cuddling up in the chilly months to come. If your home’s looking a little worse for wear and needs more than just cushions and candles to get it in shape, then our expert advice on page 60 should help solve some of your house horrors, and our ideas for utilising unusual spaces on page 72 will give otherwise untouched areas of your home a whole new purpose. Talking of horrors, we’re ripe and ready to get pumpkin carving, and have been perfecting our squash-chopping skills ready to whip up the delicious recipes from page 88 onwards. There’s bargain buys aplenty, and did we mention the truly beautiful real homes? You can thank us later...
