Art Deco Delight

The talents of a designer and a furniture manufacturer are put to good use on this charming home.

“HI MY NAME IS JANICE and I’m a hoarder”, laughs Janice Ward. She blames her Aunt Carolyn for getting her started at a very young age, as Janice obsessed over an old printer’s tray full of gorgeous tiny items displayed in Carolyn’s hallway. Many years later her best friend bought her a tray for her 17th birthday and once that was filled Janice moved on to the shelves of her university flat filling them with pretty teacups and saucers, then colanders. Then she took to the walls with a staple gun displaying old handbags, hats and fans on almost every wall in the flat. “I have calmed down a little since those
days”, she says.
