A vicarage in England has traditionally been the residence of the vicar or parish priest. They’ve since become home to lay people and many interior designers. Since they are much smaller than a typical English manor home, they lend themselves to a more relaxed and comfortable style.
While I was on the House & Garden UK site recently, I came across the Hampshire Vicarage of designer Max Rollitt and his family. Since he began his career as an antiques dealer and restorer, it’s obviously filled with a beautiful collection of art and antiques.
Max’s website describes his style as incorporating “both academic knowledge and a creative understanding of the aesthetics of time into the classically refined yet informal style that has become his trademark.” Sounds and looks good to me.
