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.

HISTORIC DECORATION 4 DAY COURSE

September/October 2019

British Interior Design from Renaissance to Regency

 

This four-day course provides a basis for the analysis and interpretation of British interior design from the Renaissance to the Regency period. Chronologically organised, the tours will highlight key interiors, architects, designers and movements. Visits to historic buildings will be accompanied by expert guides.

The course provides a foundation in the history and development of the English interior over the centuries and is intended for those who are interested in the decorative arts and interior design.

We will be based at Hotspur House, the home of interior designer Caroline Percy, which is close to Robert Adam’s Syon Park, her family’s London home. Caroline and architectural historian Oliver Gerrish will lead the study course, assisted by Catherine Fellowes.

Home cooked lunches and refreshments will be provided at Hotspur House.
