I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Here's a round up of some of my favourite Design Hunter posts from 2012.
In January I reported from Interiors UK and featured this B&B room by Donna Wilson (above).
In February I looked at copper, a material that was popular in many homewear collections in 2012.
This quirky post from March, Silent Cargo, tells the story of the journey of a giant candlestick across Scandinavia.
One of my favourite features from April was this look at the life and work of ceramicist Lucy Rie.
A fairytale French chateau from May.
In June I featured this cool and colourful penthouse apartment in Turku...
...and in July I attended the re-opening of Astley Castle - one of the latest restoration projects to be undertaken by The Landmark Trust.
August's most popular post was this look at 8 inspirational shipping container homes.
September was focused on the London Design Festival. Here's my review of Yo! Home at 100% Design.
Hip Houseplants was one of my favourite posts from October.
As the nights began to draw in this November post looked at 10 of the best candlesticks to light your home with over the winter months.
And finally, my favourite post from December was this taste of a foraged and homemade Welsh country Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who has read and supported Design Hunter over the past twelve months.
Happy New Year
