The Power of Paint - A date for your diary
Join House & Garden Editor, Hatta Byng, in conversation with three experts in interior decoration as they discuss the role of paint, colour and decorative paint effects in historical interiors and interior design today. Edward Bulmer, our founder, architectural historian and interior designer, Emma Burns, design director at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler, and Paul Humphreys, historical decorator and founder at Hare & Humphreys.
Many of you will familiar with Pitzhanger Manor, where Sir John Soane used a wealth of decorative techniques to enhance his architectural schemes, that were highly innovative at the time and which play a huge role in defining the atmospheric and striking interiors.
In this conversation we will take a closer look at the techniques used in the manor, discovered by decorative experts Hare & Humphreys in the restoration process and expertly recreated by them to restore Soane’s original vision. The panel will discuss the part colour and paint effects play in interiors today, how to use paint and colour, and what we can learn from the past.
