HAVE you ever flicked through a glossy magazine, looking at amazing interiors and wondering where to start?
We would all like to emulate the look we see in these magazines, but may not have the means or know-how.
The auction house is a great place to start. We see so many people buying dark furniture and soft furnishings with upcycling in mind.
Antiques and vintage furniture can be transformed easily with paint effects or new upholstery. This can give you the basis of a great interior scheme.
Accessorising your home with auction finds can be great fun, with boxes of ceramics or silver plate making as little as £20.
Getting the “look” could not be easier — and the atmosphere and excitement make for a great day out.
Bourne End Auction Rooms hold weekly general sales with an eclectic mix of antiques and vintage ranging in prices.
Once a month we hold antiques and collectors’ sales for the discerning collector or for those looking for something a little special.
A date for your diary — on Wednesday, July 6, we have BBC Two’s Antiques Road Trip filming, so you may just get your face on the TV!
