    I hear there’s a chilli winter ahead. Boom boom…

    If you were sensible enough to get your mitts on a copy of our October issue a few weeks back, you’ll have already seen these lovely images. If not – here’s a little taster of the kind of fabulous decorating schemes you’re missing out on every month! The wallpaper in this retro-tastic dining room is Dandelion Mobile, £55 per roll from MissPrint. The table and bench are from John Lewis.

    RED ROOM RED ROOM RED ROOM… (I recently watched The Shining. It hasn’t disturbed me at all.) I love this scheme. Dark grey and red. Yum, yum yum. The grey paint here is Clouded Slate by Dulux, the curtain fabric is Connections in Chilli, from John Lewis. The EDIBLE ‘Revival’ coffee table is also John Lewis.

    I love this Lego paintable wallpaper, just £6.98 per roll from B&Q‘s Superfresco range. The bulldog lamp is from Ben De Lisi at Debenhams (who else?!). The rug and bedside table are both M&S and the bed linen is Bed By Conran’s Domino range at House of Fraser.

    Swing back to the Seventies with Harlequin‘s Lagoon wallpaper, a Retro Blocks rug from Next and a hanging chair from The Cow Shed. The wall storage boxes are just £25 for three from Tesco Direct. What a bargain! – Ellie

    THREE kids' rooms that ROCK

    Our stylists at Ideal Home have been busy coming up with gorgeous ideas for children’s bedrooms – and here are three of the best schemes…

    A day bed, fairy lights, pretty paper in the alcoves, a blackboard and dolls’ house wall storage – this is a dream scheme for a little girl.

    One for the boys – I love the London bus wallpaper on the chimney breast here and the coordinating red alcoves – smart but fun!

    And here’s a colourful art/homework station for an older child. I like the little Restik robot wall stickers – you can them at Renegade Kids. Have a lovely weekend everybody – I’ll be back on Monday with some pretty vintage styling ideas and some brilliant high street bargains. – Ellie
