I love introducing a little vintage charm in my design work. Sometimes a client’s passions will inspire that special item. Other times, it may be a response to the home’s surroundings.
Either way, I’ve found that vintage pieces are great for telling a story. Plus, they can relax a formal look and give depth to rooms in need of architectural interest. By using a neutral base, these pieces feel curated rather than cluttered.
Duck bowling pins add a playful note to the bookcase in our family room. (Yes, I covered all of the books with a leathered wallpaper for a uniform look. Whew!)
My client created a cute mail center with a floating shelf made from salvaged corbels and glass.
A pair of vintage wicker side tables brings coastal color and nubby texture to a guest bedroom.
Colorful buoys in my clients’ pool house reflect their thorough enjoyment of waterside living.
