Here are some tips about incorporating antiques into your decorating plan:
– Adding just a few antique items will make a room feel layered and personal.
– Adding too many pieces can make your room look chaotic or junky or even like a museum, instead of a home!
– Collections of vintage objects can make a beautiful art display, on walls, shelves, tables or in specially designed cases.

Think about using antique items for a different purpose or putting them in an unexpected place:
– A vintage mirror can be hung in almost any room.
– A vase can be repurposed as a beautiful lamp.
– A large serving dish can be made into a planter.
– A buffet table can be used as a bedroom dresser.
– A couple of dining chairs can be moved into the bedroom to create a reading nook.
– A bedroom bureau can be repurposed as a beautiful entry room anchor piece.
