Monday Matters: Fall Decorating Projects…Vintage Trove Style

Monday Matters: Fall Decorating Project, Vintage Trove Style

What a blessed few days with Joss and Main.

This sale is over, but am hopeful there will be more.

Here is one of our pieces from the sale: Mid Century Ice Bucket. Original Wood Handle. I love this piece and it found a wonderful home via Joss and Main.

Wanted to share a few photos. How exactly do you use this stuff?!

Here is the vintage ice bucket in a photo shoot for a feature slated November, 2012. What I love about vintage is the custom past these items bring with them to the table. I think there’s something fun about an ice bucket that has “lived” through some amazing parties…and now it brings that fun to your home!

Sometimes it’s hard to visualize.

Sometimes we see a column like this in a sale and have no idea what to do with it! What I love about different personalities is the possibilities are endless.

How does an antique column fragment work for someone who lives like this?

I believe antique architectural fragments add dimension. Use them as candle holders as book ends…use them anywhere…so much more interesting than a brand new bowl.

For someone who loves the Pottery Barn Look?

Another example from Pottery Barn. How fun to use a custom piece for your home instead of all store bought. No one will have the exact same item.

Here is an Antique Child’s Rocker we had available. Original finish, hand caning.

From an early age I was taught that rooms should always have a chair for young people. It makes them feel welcome. Antiques with hand tied original cane seat are a delightful addition to any room, contemporary or traditional. The finish is original but it has been re-glued for stability.

Have a look. How fun to place in a room like this one.

I LOVE this pic of Ralph. I can “see” that child’s rocker anywhere in this space. The room is collected, comfortable and is made for people to dwell in. There is no worship at the altar of “sterility”. That = real life living. Divine.

Or this!

I do love seeing the Child’s Rocker in this room

How do you use those meaningful accessory items?

Let’s have a great week together.
