About Homestyle

As we wave a fond farewell to summer, this month brings the promise of a fresh start and a clean seasonal slate to inspire a new phase of home styling. We’ve rustled up a whole host of inspiration to spur you on, including how to amp up the texture for cosy, autumn-ready schemes on page 112 and a six-page decorating masterclass starting on page 66, where design guru Emma Fishman shows us how to unleash the potential of our living rooms in her One Sofa: Three Ways series. If all this talk of new beginnings has got you thinking about taking the ultimate housing leap and buying a renovation project, Hayley Gilbert has done all the hard work for you (well, maybe not all...) with her Should I Buy a Fixer-Upper? expert guide on page 72. It’s the ultimate read for anyone who’s teetering on the edge of a purchase and simplifies all the legal bits, plus includes watertight advice from industry professionals. But if you’re more of a turn-key type, we haven’t forgotten you – flip to page 60 for staff writer Abbi’s shopping handbook for furnishing your home from scratch. You’ll also find utterly irresistible décor pick-me-ups in our metallic accessories (p.22), graphic wall art (p.34) and botanical cushions (p.46) bargain buy round-ups, plus four beautiful real homes and three wow-factor room transformations to feast your eyes on. Enjoy.
