Did you struggle fitting a piece through the door? So here are some tips and examples of where people have integrated highly successfully antiques in their homes.

A conversation with Lucy Mc Elroy

A conversation with Lucy Mc Elroy

I was lucky to discover an artist and teacher Lucy Mc Elroy (Instagram) and visit her studio in Acomb, York.

She is a fabulous portrait artist and is skillful at drawing and painting children. Her children are often featured in her work and I love the way she captures their sense of freedom. I commissioned Lucy to do portraits of my three girls which I love... she has got their essence and their beauty and looking at them is as if she has arrested time.
