Hi there!

Style at Home (UK) - - Editor’s Letter -

I think it’s fair to say that Christ­mas is my favourite time of year, when I get to hun­ker down at home with fam­ily and friends. And, this year is es­pe­cially ex­cit­ing as it’s our first Christ­mas for me and my boyfriend Mark, plus I’m in a new home, too. Nat­u­rally, I’ll be stock­ing up on dec­o­ra­tions, so am lov­ing the trees (p14) styled by our fab­u­lous Stylists at Home. We’ve got seven stun­ning looks – from woodland to op­u­lent and tra­di­tional to glitzy – there’s sure to be one you’ll love. Dusty pink and gold gets my vote, so I’m drawn to cover star Liana’s liv­ing room (p84), while Am­ber’s nat­u­ral scheme (p38) with Scandi touches and green fo­liage has a beau­ti­ful feel, too. There’s plenty of time to fin­ish your present shop­ping and our guide (p75) is packed with over 82 gifts for all the fam­ily! Christ­mas is a good ex­cuse to have a go at mak­ing dec­o­ra­tions, or­na­ments and even gifts, so try our projects – cut­lery hold­ers, coast­ers and candle jars – that are cheap and quick to make. Cel­e­bra­tions can be even more spe­cial when there are chil­dren to share them with, and our guide to mak­ing the fes­tiv­i­ties mag­i­cal has some fan­tas­tic ideas (p34). From me and the team, we wish you a Merry Christ­mas and hope you en­joy mak­ing your home truly spe­cial.

Stock up on the lat­est fes­tive decs, and get your rooms look­ing mag­i­cal! And if all that tree trim­ming has left you hardly any time to think about Christ­mas din­ner – don’t worry, we’ve got that sorted, too! Fa la la la la!
