Opulent Christmas tree decorated with gold

Season of Joy

Christmas is a mere hop and a skip away and we’re busy decking our homes with foraged foliage, filling the larder with tempting fare and cosying up by the fire with a steaming mug of mulled wine and a good book. Our houses this month are packed with festive inspiration, from a craftsman’s cottage sympathetically furnished with Arts and Crafts pieces, old and new, to an elegant Georgian home that sparkles with Christmas cheer. If you’ve left the decorative festooning until the last minute, you’ll find our 10 tips for adding yuletide flavour a must-read, as is our selection of thoughtful gifts, from mindful workshops to personalised presents. We also look back at top auctioneers’ highlights from the salesroom in 2019, and look forward to 20 global cultural events in 2020.
