Quality vintage pieces lend credibility to your sense of style. How many times have I heard the “catty” describe their friend’s decorating style as strictly “Homesense” (meaning it’s chock full of cheap faux distressed lightweight reproductions).
We décor challenged watch decorating shows for trends and “the rules of interior design”. Here’s what I’ve learned from Richard. “When you feel yourself sliding down the path of cookie cutter decorating, losing your sense of style all you need to do is slip a vintage find or 2 into the mix.”
Adding a good vintage piece says “I am secure in the knowledge that I got at least one part of this room right”.
