    Many congratulations to Vivienne Ayers, our super-talented Houses Editor, who brings the best country houses to the pages of Country Homes & Interiors every single month. At the annual IPC Editorial Awards on Thursday evening, Viv won the prestigious award for Best Commissioned Photography.  This award is given to the magazine that has the best and most original pictures.

    Here’s what the judges said, ‘Consistently on brand and technically excellent, this entry was “so well delivered that it makes you want to climb into the pages and experience the subjects first hand”. ‘

      Oh, I soooooooooooo agree with this award and those kudos! I’m not an expert but I do have discernment and your ….well, your WHOLE magazine is brilliant. You don’t only show homes but you bring us such a feeling and lifestyle. The features in your magazine have some serious character (does that make sense to a Brit? “Serious” not meaning dour… anyway,) I LUUUUUUUVVVV it! I, especially remember the article that you’ve put in here. I thought, “how funny! A British take on Americana. I have an American take on, well, Laura Ashley style. I have to say, the British take is more comfy than true Americana – those adorable armchairs by the fire and her welsh dresser. Also, the duck and chicken by the door just cracked me up and it was such a lovely story of how she switched houses with the previous owner. I’ve even been nudged to dress like her and wear my hair like her’s sometimes (my style is close, anyway. =] ); so, you see, we DO climb into the pages and live like them! What is interesting is that she, also, has a home in Vermont which is where I live. Well, now! You knew pretty much all of this anyway. I’m just going on because I’m enthusiastic, that’s all!

      Love, Katy Noelle
