Homes decorated with Antiques

Antiques lend so much character to a room..........imagine an all white room and then one rusted old peeling paint trunk in the middle as a coffee table. So many questions around this trunk..........who did it belong to, how old is it, what did it store, did it travel the world. These are things we ask ourselves about our own growing antique collection at home. 

So it was only natural that my decorating style incorporate antiques in the scheme of things. This particular home decorated by stylist Kara Rosenlund captured my attention due to its calm palette and sprinkling of tasteful antiques. 

Today vintage pieces can be found at garage sales and flea markets, and therefore it does not cost a bomb to incorporate them into your decor. These pics will surely inspire you to try them out.

Love the slatted doors used as a backdrop

Kara sells antiques from her travelling shop out of a renovated camper. See the pics on her blog.http://www.kararosenlund.com/

Sisal and fur !!

Who would put an oil painting in their kitchen? I would !! and Kara !!

Kara is a master of Vignettes and actually runs classes in Australia

That Rug..............it is such an unexpected option yet works so well that table.

That turtle shell !!! We had seen one some months ago and hesitated on buying it - our loss !!
