It’s time to dress your home for Christmas! Whether your preferred decorating style is classic, contemporary or full of vintage touches with clashing patterns and plenty of colour, we have all the tricks for updating your festive scheme for 2018. Our four homes this month are all individual and packed with inspiration – as you’d expect – from a snug Finnish veteran’s house to an interior designer’s opulent farmhouse in Hertfordshire. We’ve also hand-selected gifts for every antiques and vintage-lover on your Christmas list, and have oodles of stylish ways to make your celebration go with a bang! Plus, we pick our favourite UK-based cosy cottages and take a look at the history and magic of the department store Christmas window.
