Inside Out - - EDITOR’S LETTER -


A very warm wel­come to our spe­cial Christ­mas is­sue! Back in the UK – where I’m from – mag­a­zines are al­most al­ways planned and pro­duced sev­eral months in ad­vance, which means that in the heat of the sum­mer, pub­lish­ers’ of­fices are in­vari­ably packed with ev­ery­thing from Christ­mas trees to gift wrap (and a lot of fake snow on one mem­o­rable oc­ca­sion!)... and by the time the fes­tive sea­son ac­tu­ally ar­rives, ev­ery­one is knee-deep in spring­time dec­o­rat­ing – it’s very dis­com­bob­u­lat­ing! What’s so nice here is that we pub­lish ev­ery is­sue in tan­dem with the month we’re in... so as I write this here at In­sid­eOut HQ, we’re not only en­joy­ing mince pies (too many!), writ­ing cards, buy­ing gifts and plan­ning our own cel­e­bra­tions, we’re also able to fully ap­pre­ci­ate and en­joy all the lovely sea­sonal treats that this is­sue has to of­fer. Our fes­tive dec­o­rat­ing fea­ture on page 54, for in­stance, is brim­ming with sim­ple ideas to make your home feel spe­cial (even if you only want a few fin­ish­ing touches at this stage!); our fab­u­lous stock­ing fillers on page 64 pro­vide last-minute in­spi­ra­tion for ex­tra gifts; you’ll find real-life homes, start­ing on ppageg 30, beau­ti­fully dressed for the sea­son, and d even our De­sign Desti­na­tions, from pagep 70, ex­plores beau­ti­ful re­treats in snowy climes (some much closer than you might think!) to con­jure up a lit­tle win­ter won­der­land magic... So all in all, we’re full of fes­tive cheer! On that note, all that re­mains for me to say is wher­ever and how­ever you plan to spend the time, have a very happy Christ­mas and a won­der­ful new year... we’ll see you in 2017!
