Stylish Home & Garden Show
Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, Cornwall
Saturday and Sunday, March 28th and 29th, 10:30- 4:30
The first ever Stylish Home and Garden Show event was launched with a preview of some of the key art and interior design artefacts at Residence 1 in the Royal William Yard this week. The Stylish Home and Garden Show itself will be held at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park on 28th / 29th March 2015.
The Show is part of a number of activities marking the 500th anniversary of Mount Edgcumbe being granted a royal licence from King Henry VIII in 1515. It is being staged by local entrepreneurs Miss Ivy Events and the Upcycled Home Company, which is based in the Mount Edgcumbe Park.
Owner Jo Macaskie from Miss Ivy Events said: “The South West has some of the most creative, and talented designers around, many of whom are small businesses that are just starting out. The Stylish Home and Garden Show brings everyone under one roof, providing a valuable platform for many of our artisan, contemporary and garden companies to market their goods and promote their companies to a far wider audience.
“This is the first event of its kind and we are expecting a good turn out, as previous vintage events have cultivated a good following. By expanding into modern as well as classical home and garden interior design, we hope to broaden our appeal. Mount Edgcumbe is a perfect backdrop, and we are proud to be part of the 500 year celebrations.”
Set in the Grade 1-listed landscape, the Show will bring together the best regional businesses and design talent from the South West. With over 60 stands showcasing local designers, including Helen Round (contemporary textile design), Annterior (specialist antique dealers) and Bilsborough & Strankalis (modern furniture design), the show is expected to attract a wide range of visitors from across the Westcountry.
There will also be workshops and demonstrations, including mixing home scents, and how to create an interior mood board. BBC2 presenter Fiona Wilson from the British Interior Design Challenge will also be talking ‘Interior Design on a Budget.’
Talented local artist AJ Art Ltd. Will also be showcasing a dress made from fabric and wallpaper, at the Stylish Home & Garden Show and on show to attendees for the weekend. Food from local producers with pop up cafes will also be on sale, whilst shoppers can browse to music from Pam Adams & Gavin Martin.
