From an­cient stately homes to sleek art deco man­sions, over the years Homes & An­tiques has been a orded in­cred­i­ble ac­cess to some of the UK’s most in­spir­ing his­toric houses cur­rently open to the pub­lic. Al­though the original own­ers are now long gone, these im­por­tant build­ings re­main home to unique col­lec­tions of fur­ni­ture, art and arte­facts – of­ten ac­cu­mu­lated across many gen­er­a­tions – which o er a fas­ci­nat­ing win­dow into the past.

The way we choose to dec­o­rate our homes says much about who we are and how we hope to be seen by oth­ers. Here, we re­visit five ex­tra­or­di­nary houses that are not only won­der­ful ex­am­ples of in­te­ri­ors from their time, they are also em­phatic ex­pres­sions of each owner’s per­son­al­ity and unique aes­thetic.
