The World of Interiors

I feel more than a touch mournful that Rupert Thomas is stepping down from The World of Interiors after a mere 21 years. It seems so recent that he took on what seemed an impossible task – taking over from Min Hogg, the queen of the unknown country house, forgotten, but full of wonders. Rupert Thomas has been more eclectic – more interested in the modern, with a wider range of taste, but still perfectly capable of finding forgotten country house interiors, even if, as sometimes happens, he has to disguise their identity. He will in turn be a hard act to follow, so I can only wish his successor, Hamish Bowles, well in whatever minor modifications he makes, preferably as few as possible.
