Just to enter her home through the antique door is quite a treat. I love the arch! Adore the knocker!
The gold gilted mirror and console were inherited treasures. They are antique, gorgeous and super heavy.
She inherited three of these chairs, all were dark wood and upholstered in a different textile. She loved the pieces and the fact that they were once a beloved aunt's, so she gave them a modern day freshness by having them painted an ivory and enhanced them with a stunning textile find from Calico Corners! Perfection!
The details, close-up.
This antique sofa had her swooning when she saw it in a thrift store. She recognized a quality piece when she spotted this gem and immediately purchased. She then had it reupholstered prior to delivery at her home. There is a special spark about a home that has furnishings that aren't all massed produced. She excels at mixing the old with the new. This sofa will soon be flanked by two Worlds Away end tables.
Are you a fan of mixing antiques with the made today furnishings? Do you have an eye for spotting quality antique pieces, but having them updated to fit into your modern day home?
