We've been swooning over Regency interiors at The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair this week

We were delighted to meet the lovely husband and wife team behind Hamilton Weston wallpapers in our February issue. Georgina Hamilton and Robert Weston’s beautiful designs are based on scraps of period papers, often found in unlikely places. One 18th-century fragment was discovered in a shoebox under a bed! 

Regularly commissioned by film studios and interior designers, the company have collaborated with antiques dealers Wakelin & Linfield for ‘Miss Austen At Home’ at this year's Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair.

Hamilton Weston’s ‘Royal Crescent’ wallpaper – based on a period Robert Adam design found in Bath – provides the backdrop to the ‘Mansfield Park’ drawing room display (above) while the ‘Dashwood’ paper adorns the walls of ‘Chawton Cottage’ (below).

The fair ends this Sunday (26th January) so there are still two days left to see the displays as well as a host of fabulous antiques and art. Why not pop a copy of the February H&A in your bag and read about Hamilton Weston before you browse?

The Decorative Antiques & Textiles Fair is on until Sunday 26 January at Battersea Park, London SW11 4NJ. Open 11am-7pm on Saturday and 11am-6pm Sunday. £10 inc. catalogue, which gives free re-admission. 020 7616 9327; decorativefair.com
