SUSAN CREWE Writer Susan Crewe needs little introduction to regular readers of House & Garden. Having served as its editor for over 20 years until 2014, she continues to be a respected voice in the interiors world – just ask anyone who has had the privilege of talking to her at one of the several thousand industry parties and launches she has attended over the course of her career. And as we celebrate our 70th anniversary this month, her contribution to British decorating is ever more apparent. Born and raised in Cumbria (her childhood home, Holker Hall, was featured in the June 2015 issue), Susan worked at Harpers & Queen before taking the helm of this magazine.

great state

Over the past 30 years, Kedleston Hall – the spectacular Robert Adam-designed country house in Derbyshire that is now owned by the National Trust – has undergone a gradual but very significant restoration. When it was built in 1765, it was intended to rival Chatsworth in splendour, with a magnificently opulent 11-room state floor. But sunlight and general use have had a serious impact on the furniture and fabric. Since the Eighties, craftspeople, restorers and conservators have worked on everything from mirrors to fine gold threads in the fabrics. ‘One of the biggest challenges was taking down the large gilded mirror in the state dressing room – it was horribly glued together and had to be done in 100 pieces,’ says conservation manager, Simon McCormack. A veritable roll call of Britain’s…
