3 Top Takeaway Tips: The Breakout Conservatory
1. Mix one part old with one part modern to achieve the perfect balance. I like to create tension by juxtaposing something that is rich and decorative against something that is plain and soft. It's a fabulous balance that can never go wrong.
2. Recycling saves green - in more ways than one! Reusing and reimagining furniture is good for your pocket book, but it's also good for the planet.
3. Never buy a piece of vintage furniture unless you like the shape of it. If you love the shape of it, you can change the entire look with fabric. But if you don't like the shape, fabric is not going to fix it. That's the number one thing to keep in mind when you're thinking of repurposing vintage upholstery.
