3 Tips from Emily

Flea Market Décor - - Fine Print -


“When it comes to arm­chairs and so­fas, look for signs of use such as shiny patches on arms or saggy seat­ing. These details show the seat is com­fort­able enough to have been sat on for hours in the past.” Think re­uphol­ster­ing!


“If you like pat­tern but don’t want to sac­ri­fice a sense of space and open­ness, cover a sin­gle wall in vin­tage wall­pa­per.”


Don’t over­look benches. “Of­ten made from good-qual­ity wood, a bench can dou­ble as a ta­ble or as over­flow seat­ing for din­ner par­ties.” Add cush­ions from vin­tage fab­ric to make it even co­zier.

A GLASS-FRONTED CABI­NET re­painted in a tran­quil blue is filled with quirky, witty ob­jects for the bather to ad­mire. Its mir­rored back re­flects light around the room and en­hances the feel­ing of space in the room.

IN­STEAD OF A CON­VEN­TIONAL CH­EST of draw­ers, re­claim an old desk and paint it a vi­brant color. The beau­ti­ful Dan­ish vin­tage wooden tod­dler bed is dressed in vin­tage-fab­ric cush­ions and patch­work and wool blan­kets.
