“Shake off the shackles and flip flop into summer!” says Frances Leate, Editor of Utopia

For our May issue, we are shaking off the shackles of the colder months and flip-flopping our way into spring and summer. In celebration of these sunnier seasons, we are bringing the outside in, with kitchens and bathrooms inspired by the Pantone Colour Institute’s colour of the year – Greenery. The colour green is full of life and will pump a fresh burst of energy into your home.

We’ve also given you an exclusive sneaky peek into some of our reader’s real kitchens and bathrooms, including one homeowner who has ingeniously housed his stylish kitchen inside a glass box, ensuring he is surrounded by his pretty garden while cooking and entertaining.

One thing that defines summer for me, and I’m sure many of you too, is the chance of a well-earned holiday. With that in mind, we have showcased some impressive bathrooms from around the world. So, if you’re dreaming of a piece of La Dolce Vita, look no further.
