We are so excited about the 2018 House & Garden Festival, which is shaping up to be the one of this year’s must-attend lifestyle inspiration and shopping events in the UK. Taking place at Olympia London from 20th-24th June, this year’s Festival will incorporate four events; The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia, HOUSE Fair, Spirit of Summer and GROW London will deliver an unrivalled destination for interiors and all-round stylish living.
The five-day event will showcase an eclectic selection of products. These range from antiquity to the present day; all focused on craftsmanship, quality, and design. It will feature free talks, workshops, decorated spaces and feature gardens. Consequently, we hear it promises to be bursting with ideas, inspiration and professional advice. We really can’t wait!
As you’d expect, HOUSE is probably the place we’ll be making a beeline for first. Our team is looking forward to browsing beautiful products from the finest names in interior design and decoration. We also can’t wait to view the latest and greatest innovations within bathrooms, kitchens, lighting, fabrics and paint.
We’re especially keen to attend as many expert talks as possible. It’s always inspiring to listen to interior design authorities. After all, this is how to discover how they create such stunning décor and gorgeous homes. This year’s line-up includes interior designers Rabih Hage, Rachel Chudley and Edward Bulmer; experts from Inchbald, including Andrew Duff and Liz Rawlinson; plus specialists from the BIID, Charles Leon and Anna Burles.
The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia
The Art & Antiques Fair Olympia has been running for 46 years, and is widely recognised as one of the most established art and antiques fairs in Europe. They sell everything from diamonds to dining tables and independent experts vet all pieces. As always, this year’s event is sure to reveal a covetable treasure trove. There’s a wide selection to peruse from art, antiques and furniture to sculpture ceramics and textiles. But it’s not just for high rollers! Prices range from £100 to £1million, so there really is something to suit every budget.
This is definitely where we’ll be getting our garden groove on! GROW London promises to be packed with ideas about how to transform outside spaces. However, this event will also incorporate expert garden talks and free one-to-one garden advice clinics. We’re especially keen to discover new ideas for stylish al fresco living. We also can’t wait to find out how to create the perfect space for summer entertaining. We’re also looking forward to hearing about emerging gardening trends. We will also get to admire a selection of contemporary, urban and traditional garden designs. Top of our list? The workshop with Royal Wedding Florist Philippa Craddock.
Spirit of Summer
Last, but by no means least, is Spirit of Summer. This event will host the best in lifestyle, summer accessories, fashion, jewellery and children’s clothing. Plus there will be original gifts and a collection of fine artisan food and drink. If you’re looking for something unique, look no further. Spirit of Summer will bring together an eclectic mix of independent boutiques and designer-makers. These will be selling an unparalleled collection of products simply not found on the high street. So it’s the ideal place to source something really special.
