Everyday Antiques shows how to introduce antique and vintage pieces into every room in the house to create a home that’s individual, comfortable, and stylish.

For most of us, decorating is not about taking an empty room and filling it with all-new co-ordinated furnishings, nor is it a case of inheriting matching sets of priceless antiques. Usually, we’re somewhere in the middle—a couple of hand-me-downs here, some big-box items there, plus a few antique or vintage or simply secondhand pieces thrown into the mix. In Everyday Antiques Katherine Sorrell shows how to harmoniously combine these unexpected and individual older pieces with new ones to make your home sing—an old portrait that was a lucky fleamarket find, perhaps, a set of 1960s glassware found at a thrift store, or an ornate gilt-framed mirror that belonged to your grandma. Incorporating such gems into your home has never been easier, thanks to online marketplaces such as eBay and the plethora of antiques dealers popping up on Instagram. Spotting unusual pieces is not only fun and satisfying but, even better, you won’t see them anywhere else.
