Adding some antique influence in a home really enriches a space and adds a whole new dimension to your design. By grouping several vintage and reproduction pieces together, you create a feeling of whimsy. Or mix ultra-modern pieces with heavily distressed pieces to create juxtaposition and drama.
If you don’t have the budget for an authentic piece, there are plenty of beautiful reproduction pieces in the market that can give you the same feel. Look for pieces that have unique imperfections that give the pieces more character.
Mixing Antique looking books covered in vellum with these shiny gold bound books creates a really fun eye-catcher for a coffee table or bookshelf. Books are some of my favorite little piece of art to accessorize with. They are great for stacking small objects; filling empty shelf space; or setting a candle atop.
