January 2019 – Christmas elegance

From an elegantly styled Cornish farmhouse to an opulent apartment that remarkably survived the Bristol Blitz, our four houses this month are all filled with festive charm, each with an individual twist. If you’re thinking ahead to your Christmas table and wondering how to make it look even more spectacular this year, you’ll find our seven setting ideas, all mixing antique glassware and ceramics with thoughtfully chosen new pieces, invaluable inspiration. We also take a look at the stories behind the 12 decorations that make Christmas and take a tour of 10 of our favourite streets around the UK for antiques and interiors shopping and fabulous atmosphere. From all of us at Homes & Antiques, we wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
