25 Beautiful Homes - - EDITOR’S LETTER - Deb­o­rah barker, ed­i­tor-in-chief

This month’s is­sue is filled with homes of all shapes, sizes and looks. Some of us like liv­ing in houses that are new builds, while oth­ers love the sense of his­tory that comes with an older prop­erty. Then there are the un­usual homes cre­ated from build­ings that were once churches, wa­ter tow­ers or even pub­lic loos! This va­ri­ety is what has made 25Beau­ti­ful­homes the mag­a­zine it is to­day, and can be traced right back to its be­gin­nings, 20 years ago. It’s also what’s made my time edit­ing the mag­a­zine re­ally fun and in­ter­est­ing. Each time I’ve sat with my com­mis­sion­ing ed­i­tor to se­lect houses for the next month, there would al­ways be one that par­tic­u­larly sur­prised and in­spired me.

Now, sadly, it’s time for me to pass that ex­cit­ing task on to some­one else as this will be my fi­nal is­sue as Ed­i­tor. I would like to say thank you to ev­ery­one who has worked on the ti­tle, and par­tic­u­larly to you the read­ers for all your sup­port along the way. You’ve helped us keep 25Beau­ti­ful­homes true to its roots of 20 years, and hope­fully al­ways fun, sur­pris­ing and in­spir­ing. Here’s wish­ing you the very best.
