Decorating with antiques and heirlooms can be a great way to add character, charm, and creativity to your home. Plus, these items can carry many memories and warm cozy feelings. Sometimes just looking at a favorite piece can bring a smile to your face.
I love to collect skeleton keys and vintage glassware when I'm out antiquing. Glassware reminds me of my grandmother's beautiful glass display as a child. One of my favorite antique furniture pieces in my home is an armoire that was in my grandparent's home. They both passed away, but I love seeing this piece of furniture as it reminds me of beautiful memories.
Vintage pieces are a fun way to add interest to your space, for example, using an old chair as a plant stand or an old chest as a coffee table. A client I worked with a few years ago found fantastic vintage doors at a local antique store. We designed an entire room around these doors as the focal point that brought the whole room together and made quite a statement!
What memories do you hold that you would like to reflect in your home? Think of decor you could intentionally find to honor those memories in your space to give your home a sense of peace and nostalgia.
