Dear Reader,

I love this time of year – trees turn to amber and rust and when feeling generous, the evening sun ignites a spectacular light. I’m making the house cosy and have reinstated fake fur and woollen throws over the backs of chairs but I’ve asked Sheila Elhadery of th2 studio for more expert advice on designing our bedrooms for winter. I will also quiz king of sass Martyn Lawrence Bullard in our first ever live webinar (details below), about the glamorous rooms he’s created for the Hilfigers, a clutch of Kardashians and many of Hollywood’s elite. I may slip on an embroidered silk jacket and conduct the interview from my bed.
