HISTORIC DECORATION STUDY DAYS
Historic Decoration was founded in 2016 by interior designer and consultant Caroline Percy and architectural historian Oliver Gerrish.
The aim of these study days is to explain and define the many and varied aspects of the history of British interior design and to explore the options available to assist in the restoration and reinterpretation of the historic interior today.
The speakers are all established experts in their respective fields and will describe the evolution of interiors through the centuries and suggest how this knowledge could be applied when decorating a period home in the context of the 21st century.
For the amateur as well as the professional, for the owners of historic properties and those involved in their restoration and redecoration, these study days provide a forum to offer practical advice amid the magnificent surroundings of Syon House.
