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 lectures and 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 will be privided at Hotspur House.
