Do­mes­tic Sci­ence

Housed over four floors in a pe­riod stone house, Do­mes­tic Sci­ence is a charm­ing life­style store. Launched in 2012, it is lit­er­ally brim­ming with a care­fully cu­rated of­fer­ing of vin­tage one-of-a-kinds and an eclec­tic mix of con­tem­po­rary home, hard­ware, cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories, sta­tionery, toys, jew­ellery, well­be­ing prod­ucts and more. There’s no bet­ter place to source un­usual presents for any oc­ca­sion and the in-house Cafe 53 is per­fect for cof­fee and cake or a light lunch. Do­mes­tic Sci­ence has a sec­ond branch in nearby Nailsworth.

Twig

I am Su Day­bell, the cre­ator and owner of Twig. Twig orig­i­nally opened 10 years ago, sell­ing plants, flow­ers and my paint­ings, painted un­der my maiden name Su Trem­bath. Dif­fer­ent is how I have al­ways wanted to be, to in­spire peo­ple with cre­ativ­ity, art and de­sign. I am not afraid of ex­pres­sion and am al­ways keen for knowl­edge and growth, so I have parked the flow­ers. I now con­cen­trate more on buy­ing and deal­ing an­tiques for the home and gar­den.

My fine-art back­ground gives me an eye for colour, form and pro­por­tion that makes buy­ing an­tiques sec­ond na­ture. With this un­der­stand­ing, a sense of free­dom and bold­ness is ex­plored when buy­ing. I am ad­dicted. This is my drug. Who wouldn't en­joy search­ing for spe­cific pieces for clients, paint­ing and de­sign­ing wall­pa­per, fab­ric, gar­dens and in­te­ri­ors? 46, Long Street, Tet­bury, Glouces­ter­shire GL8 8AQ (www.twigoftet­bury.co.uk; 01666 502080)

Brown­rigg

Jorge Perez Mar­tin set up his dec­o­ra­tive an­tiques busi­ness in West Sus­sex in 1999. Hav­ing moved to the UK from his na­tive Spain a few years ear­lier, he was rapidly se­duced by the life of an English an­tiques dealer. He and his part­ner, David Gib­son, moved the busi­ness to Tet­bury in 2011 and have con­sis­tently and pas­sion­ately de­vel­oped the Brown­rigg busi­ness and name to cre­ate this mag­netic source of in­te­rior in­spi­ra­tion for in­te­rior de­sign­ers and pri­vate clients alike. For the team at Brown­rigg, ‘it’s all about the mix’, scan­ning coun­tries and cen­turies to help their clients cre­ate and fin­ish spa­ces de­signed to be lived in and cher­ished. 33, Long Street, Tet­bury, Glouces­ter­shire GL8 8AA (brown­rigg.co.uk; 01666 500850; Instagram brown­rig­guk)

Long Street An­tiques

Long Street An­tiques is fit­tingly at home in a beau­ti­ful Geor­gian build­ing at 14, Long Street—a well-es­tab­lished Tet­bury and Cotswold des­ti­na­tion for more than 30 years. The new own­ers have, over the past three years, grad­u­ally repo­si­tioned the shop to of­fer a more dec­o­ra­tive se­lec­tion of an­tiques, in­clud­ing pieces from France, Italy, Swe­den and Spain. The re­sult is an ever-chang­ing and eclec­tic mix to suit ev­ery style and pocket. As one cus­tomer so kindly put it: ‘I love this place. I can find any­thing, from a small piece of sil­ver to a 10ft din­ing ta­ble. Bliss!’
