the mood of the moment: savouring some downtime

It’s funny how the Christmas holiday involves such extremes of activity and of idleness: one day I’ll be speed-making beds and mince pies ready for an influx of family; the next, flat out on the sofa watching back-to-back Marple/Poirot (it’s a weird tradition…) with the cat on my belly and a glass of port in my hand. Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, by which time I’ve wound down to a crawl, my notebook comes out and the list-making starts: what do we want to do to the house and garden this year? When and where shall we go on holiday? I hope this issue will give you a slow hour or two of dreaming and planning, for a magical Christmas and a happy 2020… P.S. Planning a bucket-list holiday this…

come together

Looking at Sophia and Andrew Wadsworth’s beautiful home, it’s hard to believe what the plot of land looked like when they first bought it. A car park, an unsightly electricity pylon and buildings for a riding school took up much of the 5.5 acre site – then the couple plonked three old mobile homes into the mix! ‘We had sold our house in East Sussex the previous year and had been renting,’ says Sophia. ‘We knew exactly what we were looking for in a plot and were willing to cast our net wide to find land with a perfect view.’ Determination and patience paid off and they secured the property in Kent in 2006.

How do you decorate for the festive season? ‘I mix traditional garlands and greenery with my Swedish decorations, some of which are inherited.’ What’s your go-to Christmas colour scheme? ‘We have two large trees – we decorate one Scandinavian-style in red and white for the kitchen, and the living room one in silver and white.’ Do you dress the table? ‘On Christmas Eve I like a traditional Swedish look and on Christmas Day I usually keep things fresh and simple.’…
