Description:

A Decorative Arts Trust Event

Heirlooms and antiques have the power to weave the past with the present in a way that newly manufactured things simply cannot imitate. After experiencing her own reckoning with an inherited collection of treasures and countless oddments, author Susan Sully sought the advice of dozens of professionals and distilled the best of it into a beautifully illustrated and practical guide.

She will draw from that in her lecture Past Present, Living with Heirlooms and Antiques. Susan Sully is the author of many books about architecture and interior design.

She last spoke to Decorative Arts Trust following publication of her book The Southern Cosmopolitan.
