Interior designer and antique dealer Max Rollitt welcomes us into his renovated grain storage barn in Hampshire, for our latest episode of Design Notes. Yavington Barn is a haven for any antique lover, with each room exuding character through the clever arrangement of antique furniture and decorative detailing. “There’s so much within the decorative arts which is touched by hand that actually exemplifies richness,” says Max as he explains what he looks for in an antique. “That’s really what I’m looking for – something with some real texture and a story, and beauty”.
After talking through the inspiration behind Yavington Barn, Max takes us on a tour of the rooms. From the Georgian Gothic windows to the 18th-century sofa, Max’s impeccable eye has created a living interior out of this open-plan space, full of his unique and beautiful finds. Watch the full episode of Design Notes with Max Rollitt, as we tour his inviting and fascinating restored barn.
