Text & Styling: Celia Rufey / Narratives

Catherine Shinn deals in decorative antique textiles from her own shop in
Cheltenham. It's almost equally well known for the handblown glass Christmas
decorations that she commissions from villages in eastern Europe discovered by her
parents on their travels in the 1970s.
The family lives in a 17th century house in a Cotswold village, once the dower
house for the local manor. Her parents bought the house in 1971 and her father still
lives here with them. Panelled rooms, antique textiles, exuberant dining, open fires,
candlelight, visitors and a sparkling tree with unsurpassed decorative intent come
together at Christmas in joyous celebration.
