I am try­ing to find an ar­ti­cle in one of the Win­ter is­sues. It fea­tured a house in Eng­land that dated back at least to the Tu­dor years. (If I re­mem­ber cor­rectly, it was owned by or vis­ited by Henry VIII.) The cur­rent owner had painted some of the in­door plas­ter walls a pur­ple hue. Any chance you could let me know in which year this ar­ti­cle was pub­lished? My heart­felt thanks if you can! VH Reader, via e-mail

Dear Reader, Thank you very much for your inquiry! I be­lieve the ar­ti­cle you are look­ing for was ti­tled Christ­mas Haven and ran in the 2014 Win­ter is­sue of Vic­to­rian Homes, pages 64-77. It did in­deed fea­ture walls that had been painted a rich shade of pur­ple. How­ever, we also have an­other ar­ti­cle that ran in the Spring 2015 is­sue of Vic­to­rian Homes that may be what you were ask­ing about. It was ti­tled The Crown­ing Jewel and ran from pages 52-59. Although the walls were not painted pur­ple, this home did fea­ture a his­toric por­trait of King Henry VIII. —Ed­i­tor
