Make The Old New!

These days the older the antique, the more in style they are. More and more interior designers are incorporating old styles and pieces into their rooms, and it’s looking better than ever!

When it comes to using antiques, something as simple as re-claimed ceiling beams can make a huge style statement.

Lighting fixtures is a great place to turn to if you like the old vs. new look and are not sure how to accomplish it. A gorgeous farmhouse French chandelier will become the focal-point of your room.

Use your antiques in unexpected and interesting spaces for an element of surprise. Antique barn doors installed at the entry of a room will create a grand feel, and is actually very cost effective to accomplish. The beauty in it is, all you have to do is install it. No restoration is required, the older it looks, the better.

You can choose old pieces simply because you like them, they don’t have to give off an antique look. The curtains pictured below are made from gorgeous antique Belgian linen, yet the average person would never be able to tell.

Consider taking antiques, and completely refurbishing their purpose. For example, take intricate antique doors, and craft a cupboard out of them.
