Editor's Welcome

Purveyors of provenance. No, not the name of some indie band of the mid-1990s, but what this special Collector’s Issue of Homes & Interiors Scotland has shown me we are. Putting this edition of the magazine together has confirmed that heritage matters. Each of the long-read stories, whether on interior design or architecture, has the same message: preserving what we’ve got, working with a building’s foibles and flaws, is more important than buying new.

It’s certainly more necessary as we consider our ecofootprint and the cost of living. But how lucky are we to have such wonderfully eccentric, eclectic architecture in Scotland to renovate. You can see it in our cover story, an old fisherman’s cottage in the East Neuk of Fife, as well as in the Glaswegian tenement (page 206) that has been given such a careful, considerate makeover. Likewise, the little house in the East Lothian village of Drem (page 124) whose owners, rather than sell up, opted to pour love and labour into their cramped, centuries-old home, securing its future for at least another hundred years.

Trends come and go but this cherishing of what we already own, this desire to invest in longevity, can be seen elsewhere, too. Take Collect, the focus of this issue’s Design Special on page 58; the London craft fair is celebrating its 20th anniversary in March, tapping into the growing appreciation of craft and its makers, as buyers and collectors search out pieces that will stand the test of time, pieces that tell a story to be passed down through families and treasured by future generations. This is what ‘collecting’ is all about.

As interior designer, influencer, and TV presenter Anna Campbell-Jones remarks in our This Life feature (page 22), “I buy art just because I like it. There’s no strategy beyond looking for what brings me joy.”
