We’ve been dipping in and out of this publication for many weeks now (which is always a good sign!).
It’s Homes & Antiques magazine’s Vintage Homes special edition…
…a collection of twenty five of their favourite homes featured in issues of the magazine over recent years.
There are vintage inspired homes in a variety of styles from rustic country to mid century modern.
The overriding factors for inclusion were that homes were ‘curated and had evolved over time’, and that, ‘owners have a love and appreciation of beautiful design and objects from every era’.
The ‘magazine cum book’ is broken down into five broad chapters – 20th century style, country chic, English eclectic, French decorative and vintage crafty.
Each chapter has homes that encompass the style with a ‘Get the look’ page to conclude.
The editorial team gives an overview of the homes – and the owners provide back story, highlight favourite aspects and so on.
It’s crammed full of gorgeous photographs to inspire and trigger ideas, whether it be decorating schemes or pieces to look out for at markets or vintage fairs.
It’s hard to pick favourites with such a wonderful collection of homes. We love the look of clean, sleek modern spaces – but always gravitate towards the characterful vintage country looking homes with exposed stone & wood as our true love – especially in autumn & winter when curtains are drawn, a real fire is lit and candles twinkle.
We fill our own spaces with a mix of traditional antiques, industrial and mid century modern design…
…the kind of eclectic mix much in evidence in this selection of homes.
So it’s really interesting to see other peoples vintage finds and how they’ve incorporated them into their houses.
There are over 120 pages to peruse so it should satisfy your vintage cravings for a while!
The publication is currently only available through the Homes & Antiques website.
