Feature Friday time!
Some weeks it’s hard for me to choose the cover photo and this week was one of those weeks.
@marin.thompson invited me into her home this week and I discovered a sister collector of vintage beauty.
The show stopper for me was an old black and white photo of her grandmother standing beside her great-great grandmother who was in the Guinness Book of records for one of the oldest women alive at 113!
I frequently speak about balancing vintage and new especially if you are not a fan of sitting on used, upholstered furniture.
This home was almost entirely made up of new furniture but then decorated with stunning antique light fixtures, so many old family photos, vignettes of vintage treasures, and old mirrors.
Let me just talk for a minute about her collection of antique mirrors.
I kept interrupting myself by gasping at all the beautiful mirrors she had gracing her walls.
Ornate and unique frames and colors everywhere I looked.
I loved hearing about her lovely items and listening to her stories of how she had made her choices. She is not a decorator by trade but I couldn’t help but marvel at her talent and knowledge.
Marin’s home is absolutely lovely and it was a wonderful treat to get to tour it and now to share it with you.
