Joy to the world! As winter days approach, our thoughts turn to the upcoming Christmas holidays. With hearts full of gratitude for our dear readers, we reflect on the many places we have traveled, the homes we have visited, the entrepreneurs we have interviewed, and the bountiful foods we have prepared—all so that we could fill the pages of Victoria to overflowing with the inspiration you love.
For this special, celebratory time of year, we wanted to share marvelous stories, so we searched out a royal palace in the Netherlands, a remarkable Beaux-Arts-style house atop Lookout Mountain in Tennessee, and four quaint villages located in Connecticut. We also asked our resident chef to create dishes featuring the classic winter flavor of peppermint.
Filled with delectable recipes, gorgeous home décor, and tablescape inspiration for a fabulous Yuletide tea, this issue will be essential in welcoming in the holiday season.
Here are just a few of our November/December features you won’t want to miss!
Christmas in the Clouds
Lisa and Scott Maclellan’s beautiful mountaintop aerie in Chattanooga, Tennessee, is even more breathtaking in December, adorned in a sophisticated palette of gold and white.
