My home is like a museum of my travels

Clare Morton’s contemporary property was the ideal blank canvas for filling with sentimental items collected from far and wide
Clare’s living room contains pieces from all around the globe, from Cambodia to California

Don’t be afraid to mix and match artwork from different genres

Welcome to my home

A bit about me

My name is Clare Morton and I’m an interior designer. I live with my two cats, Pantera and Le Tigre, named after the bands.

Where I live

My home is a twobed new build on a unique development in Harlow, Essex.

What I wanted to change

How I made it my own

I have combined items I have collected from abroad with classic design pieces and second-hand finds.

About Homestyle

Breathing new life into your home gives you the chance to really challenge your creativity – especially if you want statement style on a shoestring budget. This issue’s four real homes show just how far you can let your imagination soar; from Rebecca McNamara’s hand-painted willow mural (p.20) and Clare Morton’s unifying monochrome scheme (p.26), to Morgan’s fabulous floral staircase (p.43) and Corinne’s unique ways with vintage fabrics (p.50). Cover girl Joanna’s kitchen is a masterclass in getting a designer look for less (p.100) – you won’t believe her worktops aren’t marble! Plus Lisa’s hallway (p.94) and Jane’s bathroom (p.106) are crammed full of incredible ideas to transform the smallest areas in the house. Speaking of small spaces, many of us are making our rooms work double-duty to get even more bang for our buck. Whether that’s an office/bedroom or a living room/dining area, we’ve got savvy tips to squeeze every last inch out of your home – without scrimping on style. Turn to page 72 to get started. Also, there’s decorating inspiration a-plenty on page 66, where we get to grips with three different floral trends, and six pages of painted wall fabulousness on page 60. Enjoy the issue!
