Look who won last year’s com­pe­ti­tion!


It’s so lovely to be the bearer of good news and it was par­tic­u­larly great to call Ali­son to tell her she was our win­ner be­cause she’d bro­ken her foot the day be­fore, by trip­ping over her cat! We were also de­lighted to find out that she’s a loyal reader of homes+. When Edi­tor Sue called, Ally was com­pletely taken aback. “I’m amazed and re­ally stoked,” she said. “I pore over homes+ ev­ery month and I love it be­cause it’s about real homes and not too high end. It’s for ev­ery­one. I also find the ideas about the lit­tle things you can do re­ally in­spir­ing. But it’s the real peo­ple and their homes that I love the most, so to be the reader home win­ner is fan­tas­tic.” Here’s an­other look at her home and some thoughts about why it was the read­ers’ favourite.

Ally is great at know­ing when to spend and when to save.

She chose a wow-fac­tor Cae­sar­stone bench­top then cre­ated stun­ning art­works with her own photos in Ikea frames.

Ally has a good eye for home­wares and has cre­ated some stylish vi­gnettes. There are lots of pieces on this dresser but, be­cause they work to­gether well, they look in­ter­est­ing and not clut­tered.
