As we wrap up our 31 Days of Decorating Resolutions, let’s go back to our roots. Heirloom and well-selected vintage furniture will never go out of Southern style, and the sky is the limit when choosing how to arrange them.

We love setting them amongst modern details (hence Decorating Resolution #30), but we also love to see them mixed in with other heirlooms from various decades. The key is to make the piece a focal point, and place it in an unexpected area. On the left, the wooden chest was painted and distressed and offers extra storage in the homeowner’s kitchen. On the right, a reupholstered vintage chair and a pair of statuesque lamps give the desk space exactly what it needed.

    I was recommended this website by means of my cousin. I am now not certain whether or not this submit is written by means of him as nobody else recognize such specific about my trouble. You’re amazing! Thanks!
