Homes & Antiques' May issue is out today!

Our May issue is out now, with an unmissable guide to buying affordable antiques!

With spring in full bloom and summer on the way, our May issue explores the different ways to give your home an uplifting revamp as well as the best ways to bag the essential antiques that will make it unique.

Salvage hunter Drew Pritchard touches on the real value of antiques and explores just how an antique piece is brought to life by its provenance. Discover where he dug up his most surprising find.

This month’s five fabulous homes are united by the same theme and emphasise how selecting statement antiques can both bring a room to life and set the tone for your overall design scheme.

Meanwhile you can take a look around Lyme, Cheshire’s largest house and the location where Colin Firth filmed that Pride and Prejudice lake scene. Take inspiration from its rich interiors and equally vibrant history. Just as colourful, is pattern designer Sarah Campbell and her hand-painted prints, which are now being used by the likes of West Elm and Magpie to make covetable homewares.

If you’re on the hunt at the auction house read our feature to discover why now is the time to collect and invest in British studio pottery. And, as another Rodin sculpture breaks salesroom records we bring you the remarkable and romantic story of the sculpture and his muse.
