editor’s letter

NEXT STEPS Many years ago, I read some great advice in this very magazine about how to find your dream home, which I’ve been following closely: make up a list of the things you simply cannot live without, and then wait until a property comes along that checks every box. Easy, right? The obvious inclusions are the location and price range, but after that, there are many variables. For me, a north-facing backyard and the opportunity to update (not renovate – yet). For my husband, a pool and some serious wardrobe space (yep, he has more clothes than me). And for the kids, an area for them to play and a potential future teen retreat. When you’ve got your checklist sorted – and the more specific it is, the better – it…

Helen: “I’ve actually been with HB for just over 11 years! I first started out in magazines as a copy girl at Woman’s Day when I was 16, under the editorship of the legendary Nene King. By 18, I was editorial coordinator of Dolly magazine and also ended up being the Dolly Club president.

For Swedes, subtlety and good style are not mutually exclusive. Take their wonderful concept of lagom: the optimal measure between too much and too little. The capital, Stockholm, is a celebration of Swedishness, not only in the world of shopping and dining, but also with the outdoors. Hotels, bars and even the smallest cafes are thoughtfully furnished and stylishly decorated, to form an effortless beauty in which everything finds its natural place. Read on to discover author Lisa Arnold’s guide to shopping, sleeping and eating like a local, and discover the true Swedish style. SHOP 1. Byredo ‘Byredo’ is derived from the word ‘redolence’, which means ‘pleasant (often evocative) fragrance’, and the brand’s Swedish founder, Ben Gorham, a rather unconventional perfumer with tattoos and a former career as a basketballer, creates scents based…
