Start with oversize pieces—a huge
clock, an enormous table— and let the accessories fall into place
ADD & SUBTRACT
Every time you add something to a
vignette on your shelves or countertops, take something away.
Less is more.
If a room is formal, loosen it up with breezy slipcovers and playful touches
like poster art.
Display items that feature typography, lettering and vintage fonts. See the beauty in numbers, lines and rows in
old charts and ledgers.
REINVENT THE WHEEL
Convert an old chest of drawers into a
filing cabinet. Turn old breadboards into wall art. Use a library ladder as a display rack.
CREATE YOUR OWN SCULPTURE
Old farm implements, windmills and library ladders can be
treated like sculpture.
