Why do you love shopping vintage? And how does sustainability factor into your choices of new products vs. vintage finds?
With any project I work on, it is very important to me to leave my clients’ house feeling full of soul and warmth. So much of that soul comes from vintage, which can make a room go from stiff to cozy. Vintage finds are pieces that make the room sing.
Are there any dream vintage or antique pieces you wish you could have?
