Imagine if your home was decorated and furnished in the style that it was originally built. Not new and pristine, but truly authentic, revealing the patina of years gone by. While we might cherish the character of period properties, there are few of us that want to live in a museum of the past. However, that’s exactly the environment two of our featured homeowners, Damon Wilkinson and Todd Law, have lovingly cultivated (from page 86). Their Art Deco home in Fife is a fascinating tribute to the 1930s – not necessarily to the iconic, glamorous designs for which the era is best remembered, but to everyday domestic life.

Tell us about the Sanderson One Sixty collection It’s 160 years since Arthur Sanderson began selling a unique style of wallpaper from his showroom in London’s Soho Square. In the decades that followed, Sanderson rose to become one of the most influential names in interior design. Our latest collection, Sanderson One Sixty, is a celebration of iconic design; a compilation of favourite wallpapers and fabrics. Famous florals and countryside-inspired motifs have been reimagined into a distinctive colour palette that sees statement brights alongside a range of classic colourways. Premium surfaceprinted wallpapers, plush velvets, smart cottons and unbleached linens retain Sanderson’s craftsmanship, with many iconic designs, such as Rose & Peony, Hollyhocks and Amanpuri, translated into wallpaper for the first time.
