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.
