HHG_Editor_Fay_WintIn this issue we visit a garden in the hills overlooking Kingston, which is just absolutely beautiful. After spending the day there on this shoot I remarked to a friend that if I go to heaven and find myself just in that garden I would be quite fine. I would ask for nothing more!

It's usual that I ask our homeowners for a few jottings about their home or garden as a pivot for writing the article. This time the jottings were so complete and from the heart, I asked the homeowner, Odetta Rockhead Kerr, to write the article - see page 14.

What stood out most to me was Odetta's philosophy. As a busy, corporate head who has to travel a lot, she wanted her home to be "like a resort". So she set about creating a home, including a garden, which reminds her of the hotels and resorts she has stayed over the years. Why not make our homes the places we want to travel to for rest and relaxation?

The winner of the Room Makeover for Health Home and Garden Expo 2015, Lakiana Francis, is also featured in this issue. I enjoyed working with this deserving young lady who works and studies part-time and who now looks forward to going home to her newly transformed space - though very small.

In our Recreation feature, Latoya writes on things we can do for fun and entertainment - while staying at home.

HOME - the very word pulls us in with its even, soothing sound ... and encouraging beautiful homes, whether opulent or modest, is one of the important aims of this magazine.

Throughout the years we have tried not to just show you the beautiful homes of others but to show you how you can achieve the best in your space. It doesn't always require a lot of money. Sometimes it's bringing in, sometimes it's throwing out - but it's always about how we organize and arrange for optimum comfort. See our Garden and Interior Design features, pages 42 and 26.

Visit our other homes featured where colour and placement make them beautiful spaces to be in, see pages 30 and 34. Our pages, as usual, are filled with informative and fun features for your pleasure.

Enjoy!
