There’s a certain dichotomy in what we do here at ELLE Decoration. We spend our days focusing on interiors, the homes we live in, and how we decorate and interact with those little universes we create for ourselves. By their very nature, they’re insular, inward-facing and focused spaces, personal sanctuaries away from the world, which – let’s face it – is a terrifying place right now.

When we were coming up with cover lines for this month’s issue, we settled on the line: ‘Change begins at home’.

Big issues, yes, but hopefully we’ve tackled them in an accessible and inspiring way. Our aim is to show that doing what you can, no matter how seemingly inconsequential, can and does make a real difference.

Standing still is not an option: embracing change is the way forward…
