Seaside decorating
A trip to the coast is a great day out - and ideal inspiration for a nostalgic summer look.

 

 

 

 

Discovering travel guides
Far from being defunct, old travel guides provide a fascinating window to the past.

 

 

 

 

Restoration project
Brighten your garden with a delightful deckchair, easily restored with new fabrics.

 

 

 

 

Collecting sports memorabilia
Old cricket bats aren’t just objects of beauty for Nigel Wray, whose memorabilia collection evokes stories of great sporting events.

 

 

 

 

Four beautiful homes
This month's real homes include a colouful house in Southsea, a French-inspired Bermondsey flat and a property built from scratch in Andalucia.

 

 

 

 

Essential guide to shepherd's huts
Whether you fancy making your own, or buying a bespoke design, a shepherd’s hut is the ideal choice if you’re looking for a romantic garden retreat.

 

 

 

 

Antiques of the future
Anthony Theakston’s bird ceramics distil nature to its very essence but their simplicity belies a rigorous design process.

 

 

 

 

Also in the July issue of Homes & Antiques, we go vintiquing in Nice and Whitstable, Roadshow expert Dendy Easton explains the appeal of the paintings of the Newlyn School, Naomi Thompson enjoys a spot of umbrella jousting at London's alternative Olympics, your questions are answered by the Antiques Roadshow experts and lots more!
