This month, discover how ecclesiastical salvage can make glorious centrepieces in your home, from wooden chapel chairs to stonework panels, via statues and vestments. We also explore four homes that are filled with lovingly treasured antiques and collectables, from a seaside retreat that doubles up as an artists’ gallery, to a delightful pied à terre in Barnes. We also have reams of brilliant expert advice to help you buy original prints, collect Newlyn copper, discover mochaware, choose antique dining chairs, and create a stylish and practical bathroom that sits well in a period home. Plus our resident antiques guru, Janet Gleeson, is on hand to solve your curio conundrums!
From a Victorian cottage filled with vintage furniture to a seaside home packed with a mix of art, folk pieces and heirlooms, to an urban home full of quirky antiques and bespoke furniture.
