We’ve picked out the posts that most inspired and delighted. We hope you ‘like’.
We soaked up the last of the summer sunshine with our favourite garden rooms, green schemes and outdoor lighting.
1. Take it outside
Nothing says summer garden party quite like an elaborate marquee, and this one certainly resonated with our readers.
2. Going green
You’re still enjoying the colour of the summer in all its glory. This pleasantly patterned space is a work of art.
3. Earthy palette
In keeping with the earthy tones of summer, this brilliant bedroom scheme dares to mix contemporary with classic design. We’d love to rest our head down here after a long day.
4. Room with a view
With a little creative thinking the architectural use of glass can open up homes to abundant natural light in a strikingly stylish way, as this scheme shows.
5. Light up
The garden was at the forefront of our minds last month, and who can resist this restful scheme, which features a selection of beautiful outdoor lighting.
A simple summer palette of fresh, light blues and greens, a pretty window box and a shady spot outdoors were your most-liked highlights from the month of July.
1. Window treatment
If you don’t have much outdoor space but are feeling the urge to get greenfingered, a window box is sure to provide some gardening satisfaction.
2. Ice queen
Calm, cool and collected, the colour blue is a decorating win-win.
3. Sophisticated storage
We don’t think storage should be unsightly, and neither do you. That is why we love this simple yet stylish space just as much as you.
4. Keep cool
You felt inspired to perch outdoors in July, and wasn’t it a rather warm month. Temporary structures allow for a bit of fun and the chance to dress up the garden.
5. Calm demeanour
The warm, hazy days had us dreaming of the perfect garden utility area, and this space ticks all the right boxes when it comes to design.
June was an important month for us. Not only did we celebrate our Centenary, but summer finally arrived! And it seems those warmer, hazy days, coupled with a green colour palette and natural materials, inspired you to get swiping and liking in your droves…
1. Green with envy
Shot on location at Thorpe Manor, this pistachio green palette creates a delightful contrast with light-coloured floor.
For the morning toilette, fresh greens make a perky and luxe bathroom palette, looking chic against cool marble.
2. Beautiful blooms
Flowers reign supreme for the month of June. Read all about flower arranging with author and influencer Clare Nolan in our July issue.
3. Imperfectly perfect
With a move to using more natural materials in the home, it is unsurprising that Japanese design has seen a surge in popularity. In this kitchen, the restful painted interior of a cabinet showcases a display of Japanese-style monochrome ceramics and wooden artisan pieces.
4. Behind closed doors
We are hardly surprised that this fail-safe design feature got your vote this month. Pocket doors not only create a heightened sense of grandeur, but are also a practical solution.
5. Flower power
The Rose of the Year 2020 took your fancy this month. This fragrant flower is on display at RHS Hampton Court Garden Festival until 7 July 2019.
6. Take a seat
Green is the colour of choice for the month of June. In this space, serene greens, monochrome patterns, tactile weaves and rich textures combine to deliver an inviting colour palette for a considered scheme.
7. Let there be light
Summer is all about letting the light in, and this kitchen is no exception. Ticking all the right design boxes, from a colour combination triumph to stylish Crittall windows, this kitchen from Plain English is one of our – and your – favourites for June.
8. Step outside
One thing is for sure, summer is on your clearly mind. This space is all set up for outdoor dining, in an inspiring vignette combining hard-wearing wood, mottled ceramic, sleek metal and fresh herbs.
9. Passion for pattern
Who wouldn’t fall in love with this restful retreat? Designed by Emma Sims Hilditch, this bedroom is inspired by the Great British countryside. This charming four-poster bed is just what we need after long days in the summer sun.
