EW049: A Vintage Affair
Photography by Emma Lewis/Narratives
Text & Styling by Ali Heath/Narratives
Location: Tunbridge Wells, Kent

Combine the style of Charlotte Casadéjus, the doyenne of vintage textiles and decorative antiques, with the discerning eye of Streett Marburg, a specialist in fine 18th century English furniture and observe a master class in modern vintage meets fine antique. ‘I met Streett when we were both exhibiting at the Battersea Decorative Antiques Fair. Seven years on we are now living and working together - our styles are very different but hugely complementary. Making the move from London to Streett’s Edwardian apartment, we had to work harder though to create a new blank canvas that we both felt at home with,’ laughs Charlotte. Colourful walls were repainted in calming greys; elaborate drapes replaced with simple vintage linen blinds; zingy carpets ditched in favour of worn floorboards; and a contemporary workroom built for Charlotte in the garden. The new alchemy offsets their eclectic collections with sophisticated style.
