1. Sal­vage orig­i­nal ma­te­ri­als to re­use, or se­lect fit­ting ma­te­ri­als to re­place dam­aged and un­us­able sup­plies.

2. Plank or ter­ra­cotta floor­ing can re­place old flag­stones, while main­tain­ing orig­i­nal rus­tic­ity.

3. Use re­claimed ma­te­ri­als and hand­crafted tex­tiles to com­ple­ment pe­riod fea­tures and en­hance an old-fash­ioned lay­out.

4. Trea­sure and pre­serve fan­lights and sash win­dows, which can be ac­com­pa­nied by fine fabrics and pat­terned drapes.

5. Make use of your in-be­tween spa­ces—par­tic­u­larly stair­cases—by in­stalling wall­pa­per that can be paired with over­laid por­traits or pho­to­graphs.
