MAISONS ET ANTIQUITÉS

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - HOME & INTERIOR -

Aquick Google of the phrase ‘ get the French look’ will bring you hun­dreds of thou­sands of re­sults ded­i­cated to fashion and beauty, but sur­pris­ingly li!le to in­te­ri­ors. Surely the French home, o"en with its nod to the coun­try’s rich his­tory and that oh-so e or­t­less man­ner the na­tion ex­udes, is among the most in­spir­ing and cov­eted of in­te­ri­ors styles? So, this month, we are cel­e­brat­ing our neigh­bour’s con­tri­bu­tion to in­te­ri­ors and an­tiques. From our take on the pro­vin­cial French home (p40), to the coun­try’s best bro­cantes (p149), plus a boho apart­ment in Bordeaux, we’ve plenty to in­spire Francophiles this is­sue. We also have tours of stun­ning homes for you back on Bri­tish soil – all of which have an ac­com­plished, time­less feel (from page 55). I es­pe­cially love the blend of de­sign clas­sics and 18th­cen­tury ar­chi­tec­ture in the Cor­nish farm­house on page 56. On the sub­ject of de­sign clas­sics, we tell the story of the Anglepoise lamp on page 111 – did you know it was cre­ated by a Bri­tish car en­gi­neer? I was also thrilled to read about the up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion at Straw­berry Hill House, for which a team of cu­ra­tors has been work­ing tire­lessly to hunt down as much of its for­mer col­lec­tions as pos­si­ble. Read the full story on page 140.

We’d love to hear what in­spires you in this is­sue of H&A! Get in touch on so­cial me­dia – #in­te­ri­or­swith­soul – or use the ad­dresses on page 4
