This year ex­perts pre­dict that we will be­come more and more fo­cused on per­son­al­is­ing our homes. In fact it’s prob­a­bly some­thing that won’t ever go away. Why would it? Putting a per­sonal stamp on our home is cen­tral to creat­ing a place we love liv­ing in, that makes us feel, well, “at home”. They also ar­gue that in a world that’s mov­ing faster than a Fer­rari this per­son­alised space is our sanc­tu­ary away from it all.

Think­ing on this, I re­alise the rea­son I’m so in­spired by the reader homes in this is­sue is be­cause they are brim­ming with per­son­al­ity. Lizzie, on our cover, barely has a room with­out art: ei­ther in­her­ited, by her or by an artist she loves. Her house is a de­light­ful mix of fam­ily heir­looms and mod­ern ac­ces­sories – a re­flec­tion of her past and present. On the other hand, Emily Jade’s home (page 38) says “Hol­ly­wood Glam” be­fore you even open the door. Hot pink, black, chan­de­liers... it’s a won­der­ful ex­pres­sion of her. Last, but not least, Lucy’s pas­sion project (page 48) is a new build Queens­lan­der with a beau­ti­ful retro-mod­ern in­te­rior. A clever shop­per, Lucy mixes stylish mod­ern fur­ni­ture with vin­tage one-offs and repli­cas. And very aptly her top tip is: “Take your time when dec­o­rat­ing – a house be­comes a home when it re­flects you with items you truly love”.

I hope this is­sue of homes+ helps you cre­ate your own lit­tle piece of heaven.
