editor’s letter

At this time of year, let’s take a leaf out of the late country crooner Glen Campbell’s songbook and try a little kindness! Putting our gorgeous Christmas issue together and showcasing couples and families in their beautiful homes makes me acutely aware that not everyone has the opportunity to enjoy a lovingly prepared Christmas meal in a magazine-worthy interior. And there are others who don’t have the happiest or easiest experience during the festive season. Estrangement, isolation, blended households and loony family conflicts can all add to an undercurrent of stress that may not be obvious in the happy snaps. We have now become so accustomed to spending time alone, engrossed with work or deep in our devices, that actual, real human contact can be uncomfortable and confronting. So let’s…

your h&g

One of the many reasons I love H&G is the insightful stories behind the beautiful photography. I read House Of Hope (November) with great emotion, my own daughter cuddled up beside me. What a beautiful thing Jane Rowe and the Mirabel Foundation do. It was heartwarming to read of all the support they received when creating Mirabel House, a beautiful space for such a beautiful service. I’ll be checking the Mirabel website to see how I can help too. Christie Brimmer, Croydon, Victoria Easy access Thanks for producing such an inclusive mag!

gift of family

Raucous kookaburras and noisy rainbow lorikeets herald the arrival of Christmas at this holiday house on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. As the birds greet the dawn, three little girls – Astrid, seven, Elsa, five, and one-year-old Clara – will likely be climbing out of bed and waking their parents, Anthony and Emma Spon-Smith, bursting with excitement at what the day ahead holds. “Emma is Swedish and we follow the Scandinavian tradition of celebrating on Christmas Eve – the food Emma makes is absolutely delicious,” says Anthony. “My side of the family has a tradition I think might be fairly unique: we jump into the pool in pyjamas at Christmas. This is something that I’ve now passed on to our girls!” “THE WHOLE EXTENDED FAMILY CAN GET TOGETHER HERE – WE HAVE ENOUGH SHARED…

ANY FLOWERS PICKED AND HANDED TO ME BY MY LITTLE GIRLS AUTOMATICALLY QUALIFY AS MY FAVOURITE. I FAVOUR LOW, ARCHITECTURAL LINES FOR OUTDOOR FURNITURE. MY FIRST ADULT HOME An apartment in Sydney’s Bondi. I’ve moved three times since then but have never left that beautiful postcode. BUCKET-LIST DESTINATION Amangiri Canyon Point, Utah. NEXT HOLIDAY Sicily. DREAM RESTAURANT TABLE Sturehof, Stockholm. MY LAST MEAL WOULD BE… Anything my wife cooks. DREAM CAR The new Land Rover Defender. In black, please.

I LOVE A VASEFUL OF Anything white. FAVOURITE SCENT The citrusy Sur La Route fragrance by Louis Vuitton. FAVOURITE MOVIE Anything James Bond. I can’t wait for the new one to come out. PROFESSIONALLY, I’M…
