Your local auction house has a plethora of furniture and decorative antiques that will help you to create a uniquely stylish home for a snip. See what happened when we gave our novice a budget of £1,000 and sent her off with an auction catalogue and a paddle! We also ask a team of specialists for their thoughts on the antiques to snap up now at auction. Explore four elegant homes, filled with heirlooms and treasures, and get the fascinating lowdown on the history of the front door and beautifully crafted fall-front secretaries. Plus, book a stay in five British boutique hotels putting antiques at their core!
