Britain’s oldest interiors magazine, which was launched in 1920 to help the emerging middle classes turn their houses into havens of style, still works toward that same end. The magazine’s pages are packed with expert tips and practical solutions – from the exact unique tiles used in a celebrity home to the best smart tech for your own space. It also delves into the most covetable and expensive decor trends, but also offers budgeting techniques to suit most pockets.
