The holiday season is here once more, and we welcome it with our annual Christmas Cottage issue. We’ve gathered stories from homes, stylists, artisans, and artists from around the country to help you welcome family and friends, and celebrate with plenty of holiday cheer. Whether influenced by history, whimsy, or nature, the homeowners featured in this issue each deck their halls with personal style that will inspire you in creating your own Christmas cottage. Plus, we’re sharing an easy-to-replicate traditional menu to help make your holiday dinner a delicious memory to be savored for years to come. As those special days approach, the editors of The Cottage Journal wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas, indeed.
