The in­side story

There are some mov­ing ex­pe­ri­ences in our very spe­cial Home & In­te­ri­ors sec­tion, but the good news is that they shine a light on get­ting the most out of say­ing ‘farewell’ to one home and ‘hello’ to your next ad­dress.

We all know that mov­ing can be stress­ful and chal­leng­ing, but meet Deb­bie Robin­son and Char­lotte Hep­worth, two ‘fairy god­moth­ers’ who pro­vide a spec­tac­u­lar ser­vice.

While you go on hol­i­day (per­haps a spa break?) they do the lot. You ar­rive at your sparklingly clean new home where they have worked their magic – un­pack­ing, stocked the fridge, hung pic­tures... you name it, they han­dle it.

Fancy a very lo­cal stay­ca­tion while those ‘fairy god­moth­ers’ get to work? Then don’t miss our fea­ture on some of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary Berk­shire Airbnb bolt­holes. You can even stay in a con­verted chapel for peace­ful and con­tem­pla­tive respite, on a boat be­side the Thames or per­haps what was once a Vic­to­rian pri­vate school­room.

We also catch up with Jas­mine Joel of Maiden­head to find out what hap­pened af­ter she de­cided last year that it made sense to move in with her mother. Jas­mine, who runs her own in­te­rior dec­o­rat­ing busi­ness and is a ge­nius when it comes to dis­cov­er­ing old fur­ni­ture and home ac­ces­sories which she gives a new life to, brings us up to date.

Mean­while, de­signer Nicola Scan­nell talks about the houses she’s worked on in Berk­shire and pro­vides an ex­pert guide to the lat­est trends in colour and de­sign.

All this plus a show­case of in­te­ri­ors looks and some truly su­perb homes for sale.

We get cosy in Jas­mine Joel’s new home
