We are absolutely delighted to have our own home featured in the 63rd edition of Reclaim Magazine. We worked with interior stylist and writer Alice Roberton (@alice.roberton) on this piece.
Our home is a Grade two listed house in the village of Markyate in Hertfordshire. It is part of a large coaching house called 'The Grange'. The main high street in Markyate was the old Watling Street, the main coaching route from St Albans to the midlands.
We have always talked about 'adding soul' to interiors and practice this very much ourselves. Buying pieces which have meaning to us such as a holiday souvenir , treasured keepsake or family heirloom and incorporating them into our home.
The two milliners hat moulds on our mantle are used to stage two special hats. The top hat is Steve's Grandfather's, as he was an undertaker. The cap is a gift from Drew Pritchard when he filmed Salvage Hunters with us.
Whether its a beaten travel case which has been on an adventure or a fossil found on holiday, all these pieces have a story to tell. They add layers to your home and make your interior unique to you.
