dressed to impress

Good food and the company of friends and family. For me – and I suspect for many of you – that’s what Christmas is all about. As such, the dinner table is the centre of festivities at the Sherwood house, and I can easily spend as much time decorating its surface as I do the tree. It’s the perfect opportunity to bring out your best china and make creative centrepieces of your favourite antiques. We have created seven beautiful tablescapes to inspire your own dinnersettings and ensure your table is dressed to impress on 25th December! Take a look from page 38. Another important festive decorating spot for many is the front door, where a welcoming wreath is a must. But have you ever wondered why we add a ring of…

H&A team with good old pen and paper – we’d love to hear from you… An H&A engagement I am so delighted my friend gave me my first copy of Homes & Antiques last month. I had a trip to Paris booked two weeks later as a surprise for my partner and I was really struggling with what to do over our weekend. It felt overwhelming with so many museums and sights. However, your article on the Saint Ouen flea markets inspired me, and we had a wonderful day of bargain hunting, coffee drinking and enjoying a long lunch in the Paris sun (it was 25 degrees in mid October!). My favourite find was this unusual, raised acrylic picture of Paris, dated 1951, for just 10 euros. The weekend felt complete with a…
