NEW YEAR, NEW RULES

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - EDITOR’S NOTE - EMMELYN CINDY MAH ED­I­TOR

It’s true what they say about grow­ing older: time passes a lot faster when you pass 25, and ab­so­lutely flies once you hit the big three-o! It feels like just yes­ter­day we were cel­e­brat­ing the first is­sue of 2018, and here we are in a brave new world, ready to face the dawn of 2019. What new de­sign sen­si­bil­i­ties await us? We can only look for­ward, ever cu­ri­ous and rife with ex­cite­ment. And what a year it’s go­ing to be.

To that end, we’ve asked some of our favourite brands for their thoughts on up­com­ing trends. For who bet­ter to tell us what’s in vogue than those of the in­dus­try them­selves? Turn to page 38 to find out what they have to say!

2019 also marks a very spe­cial mile­stone: we are now ex­actly twelve months to the year 2020. As some­one who grew up hear­ing the words Vi­sion 2020 bandied about like one of to­day’s big­gest buzzwords, I’ll ad­mit I’m ex­cited. And, just as our coun­try con­tin­ues to progress for­ward, so too must we, as her cit­i­zens, strive to im­prove our­selves! Check out our list of 10 New Years’ Res­o­lu­tions to Not Make on page 50, and sink your teeth into a much bet­ter way to be a bet­ter ver­sion of you. In­ci­den­tally, a bet­ter ver­sion of you also in­cludes a bet­ter ver­sion of your home, so turn to page 44 for our spring clean­ing guide!

As al­ways, we have a se­lec­tion of homes and recipes to in­spire your aes­thet­ics and tastes. We hope you’ll en­joy them, as well as the com­ing year ahead.

Have a blessed Jan­uary, friends, and here’s to a won­der­ful 2019!
