Thank you all for your kind words, comments and emails of support and shared enthusiasm during 2010. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet, and work, with some hugely inspiring people throughout the last twelve months, as well as striking up new friendships along the way. I’m already looking forward to meeting back here in January, but in the meantime have a fantastic time and enjoy the festivities of the season. Will x

Elle Decoration get the shelter magazine market off to a cracking start with their first issue of 2011. A fabulous feast of inspiring visuals await, friends. Expect to find an eclectic range of home tours, including: a stunning midcentury modern home in Auckland; the fun and upbeat space of artist Anne Tholstrup; and, detailed peeks inside homes in Melbourne, New York, Berlin, Kyoto and Helsinki. Plus, there are plenty of seasonal ideas, from surviving winter in style to storage solutions and suggestions for relaxation. I’ve picked out some of the editorials that stood out for me; what catches your eye?

Many of us are gearing up for a celebratory dinner in a few days, whilst some of us are looking for New Year’s Eve party sidetable ideas, but let’s face it, this week is traditionally pretty manic. So, why not take inspiration for your holiday tablescape from one of these six looks. I’ve opted for the rustic and welcoming look because it’s stylish, but not too loud. Rather, it’s simple paper chains and candles in empty bottles – which have been festooned with spare baubles – create a table that guests will feel comfortable to sit around. Plus, with time being tight, it’s probably the quickest of all the looks to whip together. Group together the four key elements – bottles, candles, paper chains and spare decorations – and there you have it: the perfect table for festive celebrations. Which of these six looks do you like best?
