My dear little cat Millie and playful pooch Joey are a special part of my life, and my house wouldn’t be a home without them. Pets bring joy to lots of us, so spoil your furry friends with our pick of animal treats in our special feature on page 113, where you’ll also find tips on keeping the house clean and how to make a comfy pet bed. If you live in a rented property it isn’t always easy to redecorate, but with our six-page guide (p51) you’ll put your stamp on your place in no time. But if you do want a total overhaul, our in-depth look at planning a room from scratch is your first step (p36). Get your kids involved in restyling their bedrooms, too, with our Style Made Easy 12-page pull-out (p61). It’s packed with ideas that are sure to inspire all ages, from tots to teens. Autumn is on its way, leaving the summer behind, but keep that sunny feeling alive by bringing a Miami vibe into your home. Fill your rooms with shades of sea-like blue and lots of shiny decor for a real beach feel (p86). And once you’ve worked your styling magic, don’t forget to send us photos of your room makeovers and house tours. You never know, you could end up on the cover of a future issue – just like the lovely Samantha (p98). Her coral kitchen is absolutely gorgeous! Happy styling and see you next month...
