Homes & Antiques – April 2020

Homes & Antiques – April 2020The Beauty of Handmade

The trace of a thumb print, lightly drawn brushstrokes and a puff of air bubbles in glass… these are the signs of a handcrafted piece, lovingly tended by a skilled maker. This issue of H&A celebrates the work of the artisan, both modern-day and from the past. From ways to dress your table to how to display ceramics and woven baskets, feel inspired by our beautiful ideas. We also tour four homes, each brimming with individual style, follow a day in the life of a conservator for the National Trust’s Knole house, and help you get the kitchen of your dreams. Plus, our guide to the best eco paints, wallpapers and fabrics…
