Our typical English summer is so unpredictable that it’s important to be ready at a moment’s notice to get outside and make the most of the sunshine. In our Home essentials guide to outdoor living this issue, you will find all the information you need to make the most of your outdoor space, from stylish sheds to weather-resistant furniture.
But, if the sun doesn’t shine, don’t worry, we’ve also got plenty of ideas to help you bring the essence of summer into your home with our fabulous seaside Decorating schemes. Whether you like soft sandy neutrals inspired by more exotic climes or traditional English deckchair stripes, you can add a coastal-inspired feel to your home in an instant.
We’ve also embraced this season’s catwalk trend of ombre in Shopping, these graduated pastel shades are a great way of adding a soft touch of colour to your decor, and who would have thought a celebrity hairstyle would infl uence the design of our homewares!
With 45 pages of gorgeous Homes and gardens this issue, you are sure to find plenty of inspiration to make you want to throw open the doors and windows to allow the fresh feel of summer into your home and get set for the warmer months ahead – we’re ready to embrace everything this season has to offer, are you?
