Unique Touches Create a Special Space

Wondering how to create a special space that is uniquely yours? Try mixing antiques, family heirlooms, new pieces and great finds from a local second-hand store or from your travels to create a one-of-a-kind room.

Mismatched frames and artwork create a great look in any room. Use both flea market treasures and new frames from retail stores to create your own personal mix. I like to frame pages from art books to create lovely displays in a day.

Another way to make a room all-your-own is through a custom project. Well-worn pieces of furniture, like these wing back chairs, can be transformed with a simple facelift. We added a coat of black paint to the frames of these chairs and livened them up with silver nail heads. A vintage emerald green fabric was the perfect update — and really makes a statement in the room. Paired with a soft blue-green wall and coordinating drapery, the colors glow together.
