Hi there!

Style at Home (UK) - - Editor’s Letter -

I love that heart-warm­ing feel­ing I get when I pull on my bob­ble hat for the first time in Novem­ber. It’s a sign that good things are to come – watch­ing fire­works with fam­ily, cosy­ing up on the sofa or tak­ing an evening stroll – and also a per­fect time to re­think our rooms. Take a look at our fea­ture on warm­ing up your bed­room (p88), see our tasty ideas for Bon­fire Night (p108), and pick up a cool time­piece for when the clocks go back (p32). As the days get colder, en­ergy bills in­evitably rise, so take con­trol of your ap­pli­ances with our guide to smart homes on page 61 – it could save you money. If you’ve been think­ing about re­work­ing your kitchen, then our in-depth fea­ture on page 100 is an ideal place to start. It takes you through all the ba­sics, from how much room to leave for an is­land to in­cor­po­rat­ing the most prac­ti­cal ‘work­ing tri­an­gle’. On the other hand, if you want some quick-fix up­dates then have a go at the ideas in our Buy It or DIY It fea­ture on page 50. Fi­nally, take a peek at Sharon’s gor­geous cot­tage (p26), Chantelle’s four-bed fam­ily semi (p14), and Pip’s Vic­to­rian ter­race (p38) for lots to in­spire your own home cre­ativ­ity, too. And, don’t for­get to send us your pho­tos – you never know, you could ap­pear in a fu­ture is­sue!

Add some colour to your rooms with faux flow­ers, bring rus­tic touches into your home for an au­tum­nal am­bi­ence, rus­tle up some warm­ing and tasty treats, while plan­ning how to de­sign the best kitchen for you!
