It’s not a stretch to say that the heart and soul of architecture and design lies in the quality and selection of materials. Materials are prevalent in our daily lives, even if we don’t notice them most days. They lie tucked away in our homes; in the wood of our kitchen cabinets, in the porcelain of our dinner plates, in the upholstery of our chairs, down to the soft, plush sheets we sleep swathed in.
To commemorate the fact that materials do, indeed, matter, we’ve put together a spread of retro flooring, fabrics, and wall and window coverings! Be sure to check page 50 to find inspiration, whether you’re up for a major remodel, or just looking to add some zest and colour to a dull space! .
We absolutely couldn’t stand discussing the retro aesthetic without bringing up colonial furnishings and styles from our past! Check out 31 fabulous ways to indulge your colonial side on page 94. Cooking enthusiasts should also flip to page 106 for part one of six of our exclusive feature with the chefs behind Aubergine Catering and Events. Be sure to follow us in coming months as they show us the joys of eating our colours!
October is also a time of excitement for home-furnishing enthusiasts. Looking for inspiration and good deals? Come join us at HOMEDEC Part 2, from the 29th of October to the 1st of November! We’ll be holding contests, so keep your eyes peeled for more information on our Facebook page.
As always, we’ve got a collection of homes for your exclusive viewing pleasure. These five flat owners show us what it truly means to stretch the boundaries of creativity, defying space to make their homes truly, home. We hope you’ll enjoy them.
Have a great month ahead!
