Welcome to our cosy winter issue. Grab a cuppa, find a comfy spot and snuggle down to savour it page by page. This month we’ve put all the crappy parts about winter aside and embraced the good. Winter style doesn’t have to be dark and gloomy – we say inject a riot of rich colour and make your home feel like your very own retreat. I’m so inspired by our cover home, the colourful sanctuary belonging to Hayley Pannekoecke, co-owner of lifestyle brand Kip & Co. Her interior style is unique to her and her family, which is something I reckon we should all aspire to. Check it out on page 30.
Also this month, we asked readers to share their favourite winter rituals, and reading the heart-warming responses got me so excited to welcome in the new season (I’m sure I’ll be singing a different tune by August, but work with me here!). One of my favourites was from Kimberley on Instagram: “All the gorgeous vintage woollen blankets and throws come out. We change the oils in the diffuser and sip white ginger tea as we snuggle with two dogs and our cat around a cosy fire. Every night when I get home, I light candles. The sensory banquet reflects winter in all its wonder and winter foraging fills the home with foliage.” Can I come over for a cup of ginger tea sometime, Kimberley? Sounds dreamy.
