Enforced stasis over the past year hasn’t stifled creativity – if anything, it has made us think outside the box about absolutely everything. This edition celebrates this exhilarating energy with a focus on inventive designers whose clever concepts are pushing the boundaries.

With creative combinations and super-saturated shades lifting the lockdown gloom, this is a good time to ignite your own passion for pigment. The best of blue, yellow and red is showcased in this edition to get you started.

Remaining firmly on the refurb-redo radar is the bathroom, a place where it’s easier than you might think for self-expression to really cut loose. Dive deep into our sanctuary celebration to discover dopamine decor at its boldest. Next, get your garden guest-ready and pick some blooms to take back indoors. Follow our experts’ advice, and your arrangements should take on a wild, lustworthy beauty.
