I have a weakness for January issues. No matter how tumultuous the ‘outside’ world may be, they can provide a joyful way to escape. After all, celebration is what this time of year is about. And there’s no doubt about it, this month’s Livingetc is a celebration of both the now and the next. Starting with the now… We’re showing sparkly Christmas decorating ideas, last-minute gifting inspiration (see page 30 for 50 gifts under £50) and houses dressed up to the nines. The pages are teeming with colour and confidence, because if you can’t go for it at this time of year, when can you? We also linked up with glam food writer and blogger Anna Barnett; she let us into her flat to show us how she brings in the…

MAISON ARABELLA WHO? Interior design firm headed up by Arabella Bassadone. London-based but with global ambitions and an international client base. WE LOVE The studio’s debut Objet collection.

THE SEASONAL BUY supporting role A Scandi-style Christmas would be nothing without a hearty helping of natural wood, and so Danish firm Skagerak’s take on the tree base – until now largely available as the unremarkable, plastic green kind – comes in teak or oak wood with brass-plated steel tops, meaning you can place the star at the bottom, not the top, of your tree. How novel. Stella Christmas tree base, £259 (skagerak.dk/uk) HERITAGE REMIX sit soft Arne Jacobsen’s 1955 Series 7 chair for Fritz Hansen is a certified design classic, but how do you make it relevant for a new generation? Just add velvet. In the contemporary colours of Misty Rose, Autumn Red and Grey Blue, the newly upholstered model brings a smothering of Italian cotton velvet by Redaelli Velluti to the iconic Scandinavian…

a graduate from Central Saint Martins, Olivia Rubin cut her fashion teeth on training schemes with Dior and Alexander McQueen before starting her own fashion business in 2006. She closed it in 2011 while pregnant, but in 2017 set up her successful eponymous brand. She has now collaborated with Etsy to launch a homeware collection with her signature technicolour shades. Olivia lives in west London with husband Ben and daughters Chloe, six, and Ella, three. Sum up your business for us in five words… Dedicated, ambitious, closely knit, fun and vibrant. What was your light-bulb moment? I started making clothes for myself and friends then posted outfits on Instagram and saw an immediate reaction. It started with a rainbow sequinned skirt and so many people wanted to buy it. I had been in…

“As lifelong fans of artist/designer/photographer Martyn Thompson, we love his celebration of British craftsmanship in this installation for Jo Malone London’s HQ. His passion for light and shadow inspires an emotive approach, and we just can’t get enough of those jacquards”…
