Good Housekeeping homes and gardens expert Pip McCormac gives his low-down on how to turn your home into a stylish and tranquil space…

‘In 2018, our lives are busier than ever, our diaries are fuller. We need our homes to be somewhere we feel serene, soothed by shades of sophisticated greys, moody blues and pops of white. Perfect for the living room, dining room and bathroom, it’s a palette that’s relaxed, refined and really rather chic. Read on for my top picks…’

Living Room

‘For a comfortable space you can entertain and unwind in, look to the Scandi trend for clean, modern inspiration. Keep it simple with a few key pieces that work together as part of a wider theme. Think wood, stone and ceramic, while soft, layered textiles create a warm, cosy atmosphere.’

Pip's top picks

1. ‘Marble has been a big trend for a while, loved for its soft colours and patterns and tactile surfaces. This lamp will light up the dullest corner.’

2. ‘It’s all very well for a living room to look calm, but it needs to be comfortable, too – cushions in neutral shades are the answer.’

3. ‘Clear the clutter with these stylish and functional boxes. Beautiful to display, and a place to hide loose change and keys.’


‘Touches of white or bold monochrome patterns can enliven a darker backdrop. Go big on textiles with cushions and throws, for a living room you’ll want to lie back in. Natural wood ornaments like our home love house blocks, add a homely, but still restful, feel. 

‘Pared-back accessories with subtle touches of colour and metallics, like this ombre vase with gold-coloured edging, and glass sphere light, add a sense of understated elegance to a room with a muted colour scheme.’


Dining room

‘Simplify your dining space and create the perfect environment for everyone to gather in. This bench table provides an unfussy setting for feasts, and is easy to clean and tuck away between meal times. Swap busy crockery for minimal dinnerware that still adds a splash of colour. Accessorise with candles and houseplants for a softer look.’

Pip's top 3 picks

1. ‘Get the best start to your day with elegant tableware that has a pop of cheerful sunshine yellow.’

2. ‘Place pillar candles in a couple of hurricane jars and you’ll have mood lighting fit for a dinner party.’ 

3. ‘With its open wire base, this lamp allows light and air to pass through it, creating an illusion of more of both.’


‘After a long day, a soak in the bath can help you wind down. If your suite is white, you can be more daring with the rest of the room. 

Patterned textiles offer a hint of mood-boosting print, but stick to different shades of just one or two colours to keep things calm as well as uplifting.’



‘Choose linen that looks so good you’ll never want to leave your bed. Add tactile items, such as throws or cushions, for extra luxe.’
