Time to revamp!

We’ve challenged two HomeStyle designers Juliet Bawden and Amanda Russell to wave their magic wands and create six awe-inspiring revamps

Part 5:The Great Upcycling Challenge

You really don’t have to spend a fortune on expensive designer interiors in order to have a stylish home. If you’re on a tight budget, there are some amazing steals to be found in both charity shops and on the high street. That’s why we’ve called in the help of Juliet Bawden and Amanda Russell, both esteemed designers and crafters, to prove that you should never take an item at face value. With a little bit of love and care, you can transform the tiredest of junk shop finds into unique, beautiful, must-have pieces. Starting with their charity shop sweep, Juliet and Amanda picked up an old chair, a cellular blanket and a vintage cupboard that were crying out to be spruced up. Then a swift trip to the high street saw them nabbing some bargain china, plain bedding and simple notebooks from Ikea and Wilko. You can vote for your favourite project by tweeting #charityshopsweep or #highstreethack to @homestylemaguk, and tell us which project you liked best.

Tapestry chair

This project takes a little bit of extra effort and time, but the fantastically quirky end result is well worth all your hard work. If you don’t have an old chair to use, you can adapt the same technique to create funky cushions.

About Homestyle

Do you love the idea of having the picture-perfect dinner party, but just don’t have the space to festoon your home with a 12-seater dining table? Well, so do most of us! That’s why this issue the HomeStyle team set deputy editor, Natalie, the task of coming up with some nifty ways to make even the tiniest spaces a veritable bastion of housewarming joy. Flick through to page 74 for our hearty feature on making your guests feel welcome – whatever the size of your pad. Some of the most creative ideas for entertaining glee are born from lack of space – necessity often being the mother of invention. I personally can’t think of anything better than lounging on a comfy floor cushion, around a coffee table set for the occasion, with candlelight, soft music, fine wine, warming food (don’t miss our Indian feast recipes on page 66 – yum!) and the best of friends. What could make for a better evening? After all, the secret of being a great host is helping your visitors quickly relax and have a good time, and if you need some matching china to seal the deal, turn to our budget picks on page 102. There’s something for everyone.
