DECORATION FOR THE WALLS & NEW IN THE SHOP - get ready for the party season

May is the month that London really seems to wake up after the winter. Now is a good time to think about new furniture and decoration for the house.

Always a great believer in close hung prints this elegant set of early 18th century large portraits of horses in a hall are both elegant and have a contemporary feel.

Recently hung in the shop is this set of late 18th century French horse prints by Carle & Horace Vernet with bright original colour and in their original water gilt fames.
For the English country house look we have a set of four 19th century engravings of the Liverpool Grand Steeplechase,  better know as the Grand National

The latest edition of Architectural Digest features a house decorated by one of my favourite decorators, Mark Gillette
Set within Burley on the Hill, a 300-year-old English country estate, a flat graced with soaring columns and stunning plasterwork is brought back to glorious life by designer Mark Gillette
Where he has used a set of mid 18th century Vue d'Optique in a bedroom.
