Editor Frances Leate shortlists the sparkling highlights of October’s Utopia Kitchen and Bathroom Magazine

From the editor…

I’m yet to meet an Italian who doesn’t dress well. Let’s face it, when it comes to style, our Italian friends definitely lead the way. Maybe it’s their beautiful, inspiring surroundings or maybe they’re just born with it – but their seemingly innate gift for trend setting also extends to the interior design, and never more so than in the kitchen and bathroom. In this issue, we are paying homage to those innovative and inspiring designs in our feature, Made in Italy.

I’ve also shortlisted some glitzy and glam metallic bathrooms and taken a trip down the memory lane of kitchen design, where we look back at how certain trends have evolved over the decades. I’ve also selected some gorgeous kitchen lighting options in our Focus On section, helping you to get this incredibly important aspect of your new kitchen absolutely right!

This issue is also chock-a-block with real home kitchen and bathroom case studies, helping you get an idea of the design process and an insight into how others have created the space of their dreams.
