WE SHOP DESIGNER AND TEAM IT WITH IKEA
PR ACCOUNT director Juliet McDonald, 52, and her husband Neal, 54, an engineer, are renovating their Thirties semi in Acton, where they have lived for four years. They shop at Heal’s. John Lewis, Skandium, Channels and The Old Cinema in Chiswick, a smart antiques emporium — and Ikea.
“Ikea is so useful, says Juliet. “We have super-smart wall-to-wall oakveneered Billy bookcases for a library look in the study, and they are definitely our favourite purchase.”
The couple’s pocket-sprung mattress from Ikea is “superb, so comfy and firm,” she says. They have Hemnes bedside tables, a Branäs laundry basket, and rows of white Fluns magazine files. In the loft, an array of Mulig storage rails keeps clothes hanging tidily.
