Festive fever will now be beginning to set in for most of us, so for this month’s issue we have gone all out with inspiration for decorating, hosting and gifting. My favourite feature is the stunning shoot by interior stylist Katrin Cargill, as featured on the cover and page 23. The inspiration was Swedish elegance, and the palette soft pinks, shimmering silvers and fir greens. I find it utterly charming. I also love our colourful entertaining story, for which we collaborated with top chef Ravinder Bhogal from restaurant Jikoni to come up with an unusual celebratory feast (page 79). Then we have our annual gift guide (page 33), a stunning wreaths story (page 128) and a look at Christmassy gems from our 100-year-old archive (page 68). Today I’m writing from Tenuta di…

Q Can you tell us a little bit about your background? I did an art foundation course at Central Saint Martins in London and went on to study art history at University of Leeds. I had always admired the work of Kit Kemp, the creative visionary behind Firmdale Hotels, and the opportunity to work as the design assistant on her London team came up when I finished university.
