This Month

September. It’s one of my favourite months of the year. Not only are new-season trends aplenty and the creative world comes to life for a buzzing London Design Festival (LDF), but it’s also a time when many of us begin to think about bedding down for the cooler months with a sense of optimism to get things done. I wonder if it’s to do with the kids going back to school, but September really seems to push us to make plans, escalate projects that begun during the summer and think creatively about what our most important rooms could become.
Here at KBB, the team and I like to offer you ways to be in the know about what’s hot, which designers are making waves and how you can modernise your home – while transcending trends – to ensure you not only have a look that lasts but one that is perfectly suited to you, your family and your style. It’s this idea that shaped this issue, which includes your must-know guide to LDF where you can lap up inspiration for your renovation and décor, and a guide to kitchen extensions that includes advice on how to plan one, but also stories about homeowners who have been there and done it – and learned lessons along the way. Plus, there’s our Project Planner section, which is a monthly roundup of key expertise, buying guides and answers to your most- asked renovation questions.
While you’re here, don’t miss 10 steps to bathroom planning and ways to add wow factor to your bedroom – it really is a jam- packed issue. The ideal combination of trends, ideas, advice and “I’ve got to get going” inspiration. Question is, which room are you tackling first? Share your progress with me @kbbmagazine and maybe see you during the Festival.

Enjoy the issue, Lindsay
