Homes & Antiques: May 2019

Rustic spring living room

May 2019 – Spring Fever

This month we are taking design notes from the great outdoors as we throw open windows and doors and let the natural world come flooding in. We show you how to decorate with botanical prints, rustic pieces, plenty of greenery and sturdy, well-loved antiques that beautifully anchor your scheme. Hot on the heels of award-winning film The Favourite, we unpick the key characteristics of Queen Anne architecture and style, and discover the reasons why the distinctive early 18th-century red-brick manor houses and elegant forms that were designed during Anne’s short reign are still regarded as quintessentially English. Delight in four amazing homes, from a boho Italian castle to a haven of mid-century in London, plus meet four young antiques collectors, each with a fascinating passion – from vintage fashion to silver spoons!
