Simple steps create a GabrielleFagan’ssix easystepstohelpyou relaxinyourhome...

D

O YOU yearn for somewhere in your home to relax, unwind and escape? With these six easy steps, you’ll find yourself enjoying a spa, an outdoor oasis, a kitchen corner and a hobby hideaway. HOME SPA A special bathroom is the perfect end-of-day sanctuary in which to wash away the cares and stresses of the day, according to stylist and interiors author Anita Kaushal. She says: “Create atmosphere in an instant with little details such as floating candles in the bath, a scented candle and colourful towels.” SIX SIMPLE STEPS Disguise a dull view and ensure privacy with a blind. Try a Bright Diva roman blind from £98, from Sunway Blinds. Get ready-made or made-to-order blinds from stores such as John Lewis or a DIY roller blind kit, £7.49, from Amazon. Liven up a plain room with a colourful bath mat, such as the Rose Flower bath mat, £15, from Marks & Spencer. Relax, read and celebrate in style without getting out of the bath. Try the Chrome bath caddy, £36, with candleholder, book stand and two glass holders, from Stylish Life. Clutter in a bathroom won’t aid relaxation. Have a place for everything with a set that will solve the problem. Three tier wooden tower with carry handle for those lotions and potions, all from Matalan and available in white, lime or hot pink. Splash out on a set of towels used only for those “spa” breaks at home. Diamante hand towels, £4 each, from Matalan, or Egyptian cotton towels in jewel-rich colours, £4.99 each, from Dunelm Mill, are perfect. Spoil yourself with delicately perfumed toiletries such as an egg-shaped soap in a Gift Egg tin, in either Bluebell or Wild Rose, £5, from Cath Kidston. OUTDOOR OASIS Even a tiny corner in a patio can be turned into a tranquil hideaway with a couple of chairs and a simple awning made from a white fabric, says Jo Hamilton, a designer on ITV’s 60 Second Makeover. She adds: “A leafy view, a snatch of birdsong and a glimpse of blue sky can give us a sense of peace and harmony.” SIX SIMPLE STEPS Kit out the space without busting the budget. Place a chair near the back door, for example a Java wicker chair, £19.99; use lengths of White Optic Voile for sun shade, £4.99 per metre, and keep trinkets and treasures in a handy portage

But even in a tiny area there’s usually space for a zone for those pleasurable tasks such as baking or creating special dishes, says Jo Hamilton. SIX SIMPLE STEPS A deep shelf can double as a storage space or preparation area, and DIY’s easy with a laser leveller ensuring straight lines. Try the Bosch Quigo, £49.99, Amazon. Put up a plate rack – Susie Watson has a charming wooden rack, £175.

Ideal for your hobby hideaway; hand-cast plaster cast scissors, from Pale & Interesting; and, left, Provence Rose Little Book of Pins tin, from Cath Kidston

HOBBY HIDEAWAY TV presenter Linda Barker says it’s really important to have a creative corner in a home – somewhere you can easily sit and enjoy hobbies like craft projects. Linda, an interior designer with her own range at Really Linda Barker, says: “I love making my own gifts for friends and recently made a cake stand using vintage tea plates and cups.” SIX SIMPLE STEPS

Pick a corner of a room, or space on a landing, for a work table and personalise it with collections of treasured possessions. Plum-coloured floral Aster Garden fabric, £25 per square metre, could pretty-up a table, then add table-top storage with Utility metal and wooden drawers, £60, both from John Lewis. Evoke happy memories with framed pictures of family and friends. Vintage-style frames from Retreat-Home start from £10. Decorative china makes a tea break even more enjoyable. A porcelain Button

teapot, decorated with coloured buttons, £29.95, and matching mug, £9.95, from Utility would appeal to craft queens. A folding screen can create a hobby corner in a room or simply display an eye-catching decorative tool. Hand-cast plaster cast scissors (made from a pair of antique tailor’s scissors), £35, from Pale & Interesting, make a focal point. Quirky containers will lift your spirits. such as Provence Rose Little Book of Pins tin, £6 (including pins), from Cath Kidston. And keep craft materials organised and easily to hand with a sewing box. Mugs can double as useful containers, a Cotton Reels china mug, £6, Ella Doran, left.
