Decorating Room By Room With Antiques & Flea Market Finds 101: TIAS Antique Dealer "An American Antique Adventure: Shares Family Experiences In Creating Warm & Inviting Spaces. From College Dorms To Retirement Homes All On A Budget!
attempted my first bidding & won the artwork for $5. A few year later I learned that it was by Atkinson Fox. Yes, my home now houses quite a few by Fox.
The “Antiquing Bug” bit HARD! A friend worked for a repo firm. I was paying $5 for chestnut & oak dressers. I taught myself to restore furniture & used them in my home until they too went off to college.
In this series I will share some ideas for developing your own individual style. My plan is to share some ways we’ve personalized our homes to suit our very different styles & personalities. We all 3 use antiques in our homes but in very different styles & ways!
I plan to give some unusual ways to use ordinary things. In our brick & mortar & TIAS internet shops we only offer utilitarian goods & furniture. Decorative elements range form Victorian windows converted to mirrors by my husband, to cabriolets, stained glass & folk art!
You will begin to recognize aspects of your particular style when you enter a room! That room instantly makes you feel warm & cozy inside! When that room makes you want to sit down & stay awhile, that’s YOUR STYLE! Don’t worry if you think you have “No style at all” step by step, piece by piece it all will develop.
We love coming home to our very own “Andy of Mayberry” home. Once inside we can forget the harsh realties of 2006. Although its a 1975 rancher, inside my home it’s always 1945!
