I love how creative our customers get when decorating with antiques! This pair of photos from Julie F. in Marquette, Michigan, is a great example.
Julie picked up a Blue Delft garniture clock set that dates to 1890. I was thrilled when we discovered it was in working condition. The garniture candleabra add a romantic touch.
I love how Julie displays this antique garniture set on her wood slab mantel against a stone fireplace. The contrast between the rustic backdrop and the fine Blue Delft looks amazing, don’t you think?
Julie also made creative use of a vintage 1920 German lithograph by hanging it above the headboard of her antique brass bed. The lithograph not only adds some color and provides a focal point on the wall, but it provides an authentic antique feel to this room, as if you’re stepping back in time when you enter. Very nicely done!
The theme of this lithograph is so appropriate for a bedroom: a night scene with a napping woman and cherubs. How sweet!
I’d love to see your photos, too. Feel free to e-mail me pictures of creative ways you use antiques in your decor, and we’ll try to feature you here on the blog. Share your decorating skills with us!
Wishing you a happy and peaceful holiday season from everyone here at EuroLux.
