We get a lot of questions on Roomhints on how to create a beautiful design without spending a fortune. You just purchased a home and are now in shock at the price it will cost to furnish it. Well, you are in luck.
We absolutely love vintage and used items. They are good for the environment and some pieces have such a wonderful history and energy associated with them. For example, I have a hutch from my grandmother that is from the 16th century. I know that this piece brings an amazing amount of wisdom and respect for our ancestors within the space.
