YOUR H&G • Australian House & Garden has been a fixture on my coffee table for as long as I can remember. I actually resist opening the pages if I know I’m going on holiday – and then I take H&G along as my travelling companion! My 14-year-old daughter has inherited my love of home styling and now eagerly waits each new issue too. It’s a beautiful thing for us to share and I thank you for giving us something to enjoy and look forward to together.
