Homes+ (Australia) - - CONTENTS -

I love snug­gling up with a fake fur throw as much as the next per­son, but there’s noth­ing like spring to flick my switch to “re­fresh”. I’m feel­ing chirpy… and it’s not just be­cause I have my eye on a vel­vet sofa. As the health bods say, more day­light is increasing my happy hor­mone sero­tonin, and de­creas­ing my mela­tonin lev­els, mak­ing me less sleepy and more in­clined to ac­tu­ally do some­thing when I read our de­clut­ter­ing story (see page 94). I will. Hon­est!

So it was with a spring in our step that the homes+ team put to­gether this “re­fresh and re­new” is­sue for you, jam-packed with fast up­dates, best new buys and in­spir­ing ideas. In the mix you’ll find easy and af­ford­able ways to re­vamp your kitchen, how to cre­ate a heav­enly hall­way, and great dec­o­rat­ing ideas us­ing the new sea­son’s looks.

A per­sonal favourite in this is­sue is our stylist Fiona’s Aus­traliana-in­spired din­ing room on page 76 (Aus­traliana is a big theme for 2017-18). The soft green and blush colour scheme is just so beau­ti­ful. She’s now in­clud­ing her mood­boards in these sto­ries to show us how to put ideas to­gether from scratch. I hope you find them as in­spir­ing as we do. Here’s to a happy spring­time, and see you next month.
