Traditional Home Décor

Period homes which are sympathetically restored to reflect their age and beauty are a joy to behold. Their designs are many and varied and the feel of the interior will often determine the style and quality of the finishing touches needed to bring out the true beauty of the building.

Traditional Period Cottages

Period beamed cottages, with their interior of simple natural materials exude warmth and comfort. The original windows and old solid wood doors make this type of building the perfect backdrop for black antique or rustic handforged waxed door and window furniture.

The 'fleur de lys', 'gothic' and 'curly tail' designs for doors and windows fit perfectly with the old cottage style of home. Black antique or rustic T hinges, door studs and thumblatch sets complete the look on old and mellow wooden doors.

Elegant Georgian Town Houses

The Georgian style of house is synonymous with elegant large sash windows, panelled doors, picture rails, cornicing and ornate plasterwork. Exquisite furniture and interior fittings give these properties a classic timeless appeal.

Solid, traditional English manufactured brassware creates a sumptuous feeling of high quality and accentuates the simple, clean lines of the Georgian interior.

English Country Houses


The impressive, handsome interior of the large English country house is just the setting for classic, beautifully made mortice knob sets. Manufactured in England using superior engineering methods and available in a range of beautiful finishes, such as imperial bronze and antique brass, this style complements the most traditional of interiors.

For something a little different, but still of a classical design, cut glass knob sets make a wonderful finishing touch to both bedroom and bathroom doors. Ornate rim locks positioned on the outside edge of the door give that wonderful 'big house' appearance to large traditional doors.

To achieve a wonderful period look with your light fittings, try the dolly switch with its smooth rounded body and switch. The understated dark brown bronze finish is truly in keeping with many interiors.
