Interior designer, Emma Martin, says Newark Antiques Fair is “an interior designer’s dream”, so if you are looking for stylish furniture, creative artwork, decorative antiques, vintage textiles (and quite possibly anything else you can imagine to style your home!) then Newark Antiques Fair is a must-visit event for you.
Check out Emma’s top tips for styling with antiques…
“When styling antiques, people can sometimes forget that just because one item is antique, it doesn’t mean the whole design has to be antique! Have fun with your design, like previously stated, the centre piece can be an antique item you just can’t forget about and the rest of the room can be based around more traditional items.
“I use a mix of traditional furniture and antique items”, Emma explains as we come across some beautiful antique tiles, “a lot of my designs have a lot of colourful tiles in them, there is a big tradition of using tiles in Spain, they are good quality and you can easily use them as part of your chosen colour scheme to add interest to the room.”
“Rather than using colourful wallpaper or colourful furniture, you could use tiles!” Tiles don’t have to be restricted to the kitchen, Emma emphasizes how you can use them (tiles) in any room. “It’s just about having an eye for detail, knowing what’s good for your personal taste and using these to find your forever piece.”
