Period Living

Antique or vintage style homeware is eternally in fashion for the very reason that nothing looks more natural in a rambling country pile or old city town house. For those of us not blessed with keys to some manor or expecting to inherit one, the good news is that Period-look pieces blend exceptionally well into contemporary apartments the world over, adding a waft of old money and British eccentricity.

Breakfast like a king with a charming silver egg cup and spoon set; you’ll automatically hold out your pinkie (little finger) when drinking tea from a divine cup and saucer; and these picked cushions blend beautifully with old world interiors.; add a crystal decanter for the most decorous way to pour a nightcap.
