Not only are antiques excellent value but they instantly add character and personality to a room. They make a house feel like a home and can create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Henrietta Spencer-Churchill will explore different ways of collecting and reasons to buy antiques, offering top tips on the best places to source them depending on budgets and tastes.
Discussing of the use of antiques in classic settings as well as more contemporary, Henrietta will show how even one piece or one good picture can make a difference to a room/space by creating focal point as well as looking at accessories and the best way to start collecting.
