I often feel drawn to life in the country at this time of year. Perhaps it’s the idyll of a country cottage laden with snow and rolling fields as far as the eye can see. Or, maybe, it’s a hankering after childhood memories: waking up on a winter’s morning to see the frost-hit fields from my bedroom window. Either way, there’s no denying that the latest issue of Country Homes & Interiors brought back many a happy memory. As well as a trip down memory lane, the January pages were plentiful with their ideas. From alternative festive wreaths to new traditions and welcome lighting suggestions, their New Year stories are uplifting and comforting. P.S. Rhoda – who edits the magazine – writes a daily blog, which I thoroughly recommend checking out.
