This distinctive compilation of art and interior decoration comprises a mix of modern, vintage and antique pieces, many of which have been purchased by Sir Rod himself at auction houses, galleries and antiques shops, from across the UK and worldwide. This harmonious ensemble offers a nod to the classical European interior aesthetic, but with the undeniable flair of an international superstar.

Within the collection are a multitude of works of art, furniture, and paintings, including two marvellous maritime paintings: ‘Hispania Leads at the Gybe Mark, Western Solent, 1912' by John Steven Dews (b.1949) and 'Britannia Racing in the Clyde' by David Brackman (1932-2007).
