That time of the year already?

Yes! Christmas is fast approaching. No it doesn’t matter how much you close your eyes and block your ears with your fingers and sing “lalalalalala I can’t hear you Lisa.” I must admit I was a bit like that myself when this month’s email arrived from magazine’s managing editor Lee Tran Lam. Not quite the official December Christmas issue (whew!), the November issue, out Thursday, is packed with Christmas inspiration for those who prefer to confront the Holiday beast head on and not go into denial like a certain blogger. Thankfully Lee Tran decided to share this wonderful house.

… I thought I’d send you one of the ‘interior candy’ homes in the mag that doesn’t necessarily have a Christmas link – although it is incredibly summery and looks ideal for lounging about on warm days with a cool ginger beer nearby. It’s also our first ever unofficial submission to your pet on furniture collection, which I’m excited about!

So the home belongs to Belinda Everingham, who runs (a company that, unsurprisingly, like her home, is inspired by the natural surrounds). It’s very serene and clean (and in fact, I get a big dose of I-should-be-more-tidier guilts just looking at how immaculate this house is). And if it all seems too elegant to be true, well, it truly is the real deal, and readers can step inside the residence to see it for themselves! Thanks to people have a chance to tour the home with our editor Claire Bradley and stylist Jason Grant on November 26. Readers can get tickets from as of Thursday.

(The stylist on the story is and the photographer is .)

Don’t worry if you can’t pick up a copy on Thursday. You can also download it digitally via , ,  and

truly amazing!!! and i sure love Christmas!

love! so bright and cheerful.

About Christmas I have a big problem this year. I always decorated my tree and house with a very clean, pretty, and slick crystal and snow white pattern, but my son have know 15 months and he is crazy about balls. So I cannot have a crystal in my decoration, and I cannot decorate my tree with balls, or I will find my tree destroyed by my kid.
Do you have any ideas? Please help me send me some pictures.
Thank you all.

Some years, Iris, you just have to put aside your traditional deco and wait until it will be safe. You might try changing out your artwork for winter-themed images, and use decorative lighting to cast the mood you're looking for.

@dear Iris with having cats I have same problem. I swisched to scandinavian decor and wood balls/christmas ornaments. Or even plastic. Or metal.
