Make a creative home this Christmas I love Christmas, and one of my favourite parts is decorating the house. Opening the festive box, rediscovering precious trinkets and, everyone holding their breath, switching on the fairy lights for the first time. Suddenly, everything feels magical. It’s this unique delight that Tamsyn Morgans and Janice Issitt capture in our Christmas interiors feature. The two share their style and creativity, as well as giving practical advice – that doesn’t break the bank – on how to make your home burst with seasonal beauty, vintage-style. And we’ve carefully curated a selection of Christmas gifts that are sure to bring a smile to your loved ones. For although receiving presents is wonderful, finding the perfect gift for a special person gives real joy. Angel Adoree is sure to have a joyful season as the French chateau, that she and husband Dick Strawbridge are renovating, takes shape. We were given exclusive access as they filmed series two of Channel 4’s Escape to the Chateau, and their story is inspiring. Angel shows that hard work, vision and a large dose of humour enable her, Dick and their two children to carve out their dream life. Another bold chatelaine was Maud Russell, who turned Mottisfont into a hub for artists and writers. Expressing his creativity in a very different way was John Soane, and we were one of the first to see his recently renovated London house and museum. And Antiques Roadshow expert Marc Allum invites us to discover the art of our local blacksmith. Everyone in this issue is uniquely creative and I hope that you too are inspired to express your individual creativity to make this season memorable. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas.
