2020 has certainly been a year none of us will forget in a hurry. I am incredibly grateful that my business has managed to weather the storm, when so many in the publishing industry have not. Thank you readers for your enduring support, it means so so much. The pandemic did mean our team had to adjust our way of working and curating the issues became slightly more challenging due to the fact that shoots were unable to take place in the earlier part of the year. This issue – Volume 10 – was the one where we had to source a lot of existing photography, or work with those who could shoot their own space for us, rather than us sending in a photographer. The issue still came together beautifully, and I’m so thankful to my amazing team and everyone who contributed who all pulled together and were so supportive.

As always, I like to share a few of the images that didn’t quite make it onto the printed pages, but still deserve some appreciation. I hope you enjoy a little bit of inspiration here during the downtime between Christmas and New Year….

I LOVE Ruth Walleyn’s yellow sofa – it instantly made me want to change my own sofa to a bold statement colour! Ruth has such a unique style which is reflected in her business Couleur Locale, which she tells us the story of in the Creative Life piece in the magazine. Gorgeous photography by Jeroen van der Spek.

I am constantly swooning over these tiles in the home of Emily Crocker, photographed by Helena Dolby. I love the simplicity of her space and how she has injected colour and pattern through elements such as tiles, rugs and plants.

Another beautifully calming and warm home is that of Tiffany Grant-Riley, who kindly photographed the space for us herself. In the feature she tells us her renovation story of turning their historical home into a Scandi-inspired haven.

I absolutely love getting a peek inside creative people’s workspaces and we had some beauties in Volume 10! Above you can see the studios of Alyssa & Wil of Holy Water Apothecary, Sophie Sellu of Grain & Knot, floral artist Bex Partridge, woodworker Cadence Hays and finally, maker Ainslee Costa. They all have such interesting stories about their creative businesses too, which you can delve into in the issue.

Finally, two homes where life, work and creativity collide – those of Alice Dobie of Botanica Studio and textile artist Emma Cassi. Both homes fully reflect the passions of their owners – Alice with plants and Emma with her textural work.

If you are yet to get hold of a copy of Volume 10 to see more of these and lots of other inspiring spaces and people, then never fear, we still have plenty of stock left of this issue, so just pop to our online shop to order it, or why not sign up for a 2 issue subscription? We are already beavering away on the next issue, due out in April 2021.

Happy New Year lovely readers! See you in 2021, when we are sure things will be looking brighter! x
