I love what Rosanne Palazola says on her blog…..
“I love incorporating antiques into my design work. It gives a new design some history – some “ghosts”! With each piece I try to imagine what life was like when it was first brought into a home – how the owners lived, how the piece was used. And now it gets a chance at rebirth bringing the past into the present. Antiques also fit into my ethic of “Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!” Antiques are the ultimate in green design.”
