Local home in national magazine
Hope — The home and work of decorative artists Hope and Fred Angier of Hope are featured in the Spring-Summer 2013 issue of Old-House Interiors’ Early Homes magazine, on newsstands now. The Angiers, as Hope R. Angier Interior Decorative Painting, will be exhibitors at the Greater Portland Landmarks Old House Tradeshow Saturday and Sunday, March 23 and 24, at Portland’s Holiday Inn by the Bay.
For all their associations with old/early homes, the Angiers live in a newly constructed home they designed themselves, albeit along traditional lines, and had built by Stephen Florimbi of Rockport. The home is pictured both inside and out in the magazine spread, which features color photographs by Camden architectural photographer Brian Vanden Brink.
The house’s interior serves as a showplace for the many traditional decorative arts the couple employ including murals, trompe l’oeil, faux graining and chinoiseries; Hope also creates theorems, paintings of old ships and portable stair-riser murals.
On Tuesday, April 16, the Angiers will present a talk to the Hope Historical Society. For more information about their work, visit hopeangier.com.
