Your Home and Garden - - Contents -

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.
