    I love the personalization feel you get from showcasing items that were passed down from other generations or found in an antique or vintage shop.
    Especially nowadays when mass-produced Ikea, West Elm, etc pieces seem to be found in most homes. I think using personal one-of-a-kind items brings warmth and interest to an otherwise catalogue-y space.

  2. Thanks for your input! I totally agree. I love walking into a space and feeling like each object has a story to tell. It seems to create a depth that is often lacking in today’s world.
