Editor's Note

Is a house ever truly finished? Well, perhaps...for a moment in time. But if you’re like me, the urge to update, edit, and enhance your home eventually kicks in again. The beauty of our annual Decorating issue is that it’s packed with ideas, for both subtle tweaks and dramatic transformations. Whether you’re looking for a simple way to refresh a room—see Haute Stuff, 35 Great Pillows, page 24—or you need a whole
new plan, we’ve got you covered.

For 20-plus pages of creative design, check out the winners of our first annual A-List Awards, starting on page 78. Because the A-List categories range from kitchens and kids’ rooms to landscapes and living spaces, these confident interiors and exteriors offer inspiration for all corners of the home. If you missed our event honoring the professionals behind these distinctive projects, check out the A-List video at
athomefc.com for a behind-the-scenes look.

Before we know it, a whole new batch of A-List entries will be crossing our desks. It’s not too soon to plan ahead: If you’ve just completed a standout space or you’re in the throes of an extraordinary project, get those submissions ready for this coming spring.

While looking ahead to 2011, the best news is that we’re adding a fifth issue next year. So starting in March, you can look forward to more athome.
