Heart Home magazine issue 6
Heart Home is a quarterly magazine celebrating all that is unique and good about British interior design. Championing independent British designers and inspiring readers to create their own great British homes.
Cover photographer James Balston Winter in the UK can be a cold and bleak affair so here at Heart Home we have dedicated this issue to bringing colour and festive cheer into your homes. Not just for the holiday period but into the New Year and beyond. We have a very special Christmas feature on page 12 which will definitely inspire you to think to the past for your decorating ideas this year, and some stunning but very achievable floral displays on page 58. And to help get the party started there are some simple canapé recipes on page 74. But it’s not all about Christmas. Our ‘Day in the Life’ feature for this issue is with Lisa Whatmough of Squint, arguably the designer of the most colourful furniture around today, and on page 80 we have a very sunny feature about how to successfully bring primary colours into the home through soft furnishing and accessories. And of course we have our readers’ homes, all of which use colour in different but very effective ways. We guarantee you will be inspired to get more creative with the paint brushes soon. Don’t forget, colour is not just for So here’s wishing all of our readers Christmas! a Merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.
