February 2019 – Look to the Stars

This month we are scanning the heavens for interiors inspiration, as we explore the world of scientific instruments and pair them with dreamy soft furnishings and accessories. From antique telescopes and star charts, to stylish furniture and standout lighting, you’ll be wishing for night-time so you can enjoy the wonder of inky, star-lit skies. We also tour four remarkable homes, from an incredible Manhattan apartment owned by design doyenne and fashion icon Iris Apfel, to a Sussex barn conversion filled with nautical antiques. We show you how to furnish your home beautifully – while on a budget – with antiques, and share tips for where to pick up preloved pieces. Plus we visit 10 UK museums with amazing collections.
