Welcome The New Year often heralds great intentions when it comes to giving our homes a spruce up. Whether it’s a brand new kitchen or bathroom that’s needed or a simple update of a tired room, the start of January is a great time to plan the changes. In this issue you’ll fi nd decorating schemes based on a natural palette that work beautifully in period properties, plus 20 great ideas for updating your living room furniture.
January is also the perfect time to consider changes to your outside space as you should be able to see its current structure quite clearly.
