Hi there!

Style at Home (UK) - - Editor's Letter - Vanessa rich­mond, Ed­i­tor

The last cou­ple of week­ends, I’ve wo­ken up to sun­shine and it’s given me a weird in­jec­tion of en­ergy to get stuff done. There’s noth­ing like sun­light to show up the dirt, so I’ve been run­ning around dust­ing shut­ters and lamp­shades with in­sid­e­out sports socks on my hands, and clear­ing away the cob­webs with a broom wrapped in an old pil­low­case, spritzed with spray cleaner (tricks I learnt work­ing in ho­tel house­keep­ing, years ago!). In­spired by the ‘make-do-and-mend’ at­ti­tude of our real home­own­ers in this is­sue, I’ve also stopped moan­ing on about my on-its-last-legs kitchen and got busy re­stick­ing and Plasti-kot­ing the loose and chipped gloss vinyl, fix­ing the loose han­dles and re­hang­ing the wonky doors. Looks al­most as good as new! Turn to page 122 to see projects by other Style at Homers…
