What House? March 2012

Welcome
Dear house-hunter,
This month is a big one for the UK’s new homes industry, and for house-hunters who are hoping to make the most of the benefits of buying a new-build property. The government is bringing the Stamp Duty “holiday” for first-time buyers to an end, meaning many of you will have to find a little bit extra from your savings to give to the taxman when you buy your first home. On the plus side, for those struggling to find a big enough deposit to secure a mortgage, the government has finally launched its NewBuy Guarantee, which will allow creditworthy homebuyers to purchase a new-build home with just a 5% deposit. This month, we’ve got plenty of fantastic new homes from around the UK to share with you, along with the latest news about new-build developments and incentives available. I hope you enjoy our first edition: do contact me with your questions and feedback.

Happy house-hunting!

MORTGAGES
NewBuy: New government scheme to help new homes buyers
On 12th March, the government launched NewBuy, a scheme aimed to provide a helping hand to homebuyers in England currently shut out of the housing market, by providing them with the chance to buy a new home with just a 5% deposit and an affordable 95% mortgage. Aimed at both first-time buyers and existing homeowners who are hoping to purchase a new-build home as their main residence, it is expected that up to 100,000 house hunters could be assisted by NewBuy. Housebuilders who sign up to NewBuy will be able to offer this assistance on properties priced at up to £500,000.

How to save money as mortgage rates begin to rise
Over one million mortgage customers in the UK are facing increased mortgage repayments this spring. That’s after two of the UK’s biggest mortgage lenders announced increases in their standard variable mortgage rates. The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) and the Halifax have taken the decision to raise their standard borrowing rate, despite the Bank of England base rate remaining at its record low level of 0.5%.

Consumer groups have accused the partly taxpayer-owned lenders of ‘profiteering’. But how will the changes affect you? What should you do to save money? And if you’re not with Halifax or RBS, can you also expect your mortgage to rise in the near future? The changes in full RBS became the first bank to increase mortgage rates for existing customers in March 2012 when it increased the rate of its Offset Mortgage by 0.25%. The bank also plans to raise the rate on its offset One Account by the same amount on 1st May 2012. It is estimated 200,000 borrowers will be affected. Halifax has also

INTERIORS

Spring fabrics and furnishings
Bring back the romance into your life and new home this year by keeping up with the spring trends in bright and airy colours and fabrics. Sheer and cotton-based fabrics using traditional floral designs are a good idea for window dressings for bedrooms or dressing rooms. Jacquard (a raised pattern incorporated into the fabric) is also in fashion. Villa Nova (villanova.co.uk) offers a range of beautiful fabrics suitable for 2012’s trends. I would recommend the softly flowing, wide sheers featuring subtly textured plains and crisp stripes, presented in light natural tones with stylish accent colours. Cath Kidston (cathkidston. co.uk) is going from strength to strength and working with the traditional home crafting theme, along with the use of traditional florals and fresh pastel colours. This designer is a must for your home furnishings and window dressings: visit online or one of its shops (there are stores throughout the UK). There are cushions and throws along with matching accessories available, along with fabric to purchase by the metre, if you are a dab hand at creating your own window dressings or soft furnishings. Fabrics cater for kids and adults and if you do not manage to pass an hour in the shop, you just haven’t looked hard enough! Due to the ever-decreasing contents of our purses or wallets these days, especially after all the expenses involved in buying your new-build, the D.I.Y option is very much in favour. I would recommend spray-painting of stencils onto furniture, which is really not hard to do and will give tired objects a much-needed lift. To harmonise with suggested themes and fabrics, familiarise yourself with the art of stencilling and apply it to items of furniture such as bedside tables or dressing tables, to add a touch of personality and also, of course, keeping with trend. Floral stencils can be purchased at your local craft or art shop, or search in books or online as to how to create your own. MORE

INTERIORS

The family room
What a great room to create if you are just moving into your first new home. This room will mark your home as your own and should be a room to be enjoyed by all and a place of joy, comfort and memories too. One of the main trends for 2012 is home crafting, so for comfort consider throws and blankets along with patchwork and tactile cushions to encourage fun and feeling. Traditional check blankets are great for covering sofas old and new. John Lewis (johnlewis.co.uk) has a sweet shop of soft furnishings for you to get lost in. Some recommendations include the cosy throw by Avoca in a purple check tartan style, priced at £80, and a range of accentuated cushions. If you are working with a young theme to please your little ones, the cushion range by Borderline offers a cat, fox or bat design cushion, each priced at £30. If, however – and rightly so – the adults have the first choice, look at complementing the Avoca throw and opt for the Designers Guild Royal cushion, priced at £75, which will not only harmonise with your throw but will add a
www.whathouse.co.uk

rich regal family theme to your room. Continuing with the family theme and the lines of the family tree, look at displaying this in the form of silhouette portraits as decoration for your walls. If you have a fireplace, place your framed pictures above it, or if you have a feature wall, display as an off-centre placement of decorative frames. To create your family portraits, take a piece of A4 ivory card as the background and black card to create your silhouette. Take a picture of your family member/members in the form of a Victorian silhouette (i.e. a side view, similar to the Queen’s head on a coin) and once printed, cut out around the outside of the shape to get your silhouette. Transfer this shape onto the card and cut out, then place this onto the background card and fit into the frame of your choice. If you want to work with the soft furnishings suggested, the complementing wall colours would be in the seasonal colours of grey or a light heather, such as Pavilion Gray 242 or Smoked Trout 60 by Farrow & Ball (farrow-ball.com). Frames should be metallic in the form of sprayed silver or a more contemporary version in chrome.
