In Volume 12 our loose theme is PRE-LOVED. We love interiors with a narrative - a grand story of a building’s former life, or small stories of a precious items found during a memorable trip. In this issue we celebrate spaces that embrace imperfection, the time-worn, believing that the past can always have a place in our future.
Furnishing and styling our homes with secondhand items is one way we can reduce our impact on our planet too, as it suffers under the strain of mass consumerism. This issue provides inspiration on bringing life back to old spaces and demonstrating how to bring narrative and character to your interior with second hand finds. With so many eras to choose from, there is something for everyone and the featured spaces offer a variety of styles to glean ideas from.
From a renovated French chateau to a one bed apartment in south east London, a studio in an old bakery to a neighbourhood store in Oklahoma, the idea of pre-loved is interpreted in many different ways. We share some great sources to purchase vintage goods and even resurrect some pudding recipes from the past!
