Tasteful Antique Accessories


I’m going to kick things off today with something that will inspire you. I love to merchandise my designs with gorgeous antiques. This impressive copper carafe collection seen below, dates to the late 1800s or earlier. The copper carafes were garage sale finds …… YES !!!!!  I’ve ALSO used two reproduction hammered copper platters added to the mix. :-)

No doubt these elegant carafes were used over a low fire to simmer coffee all day. This was long before Skinny Lattes at Starbucks. :-)

I’ve displayed this vignette on my clients hand carved cherry wood buffet, an effective way to add drama.

Very nice patina from many years of polish.

I like to personalize my design to each individual client. 

This clients heritage is Italian!
