Vintage wooden chairs have a fresh appeal when paired with an antique gateleg table in the kitchen. Meanwhile, vintage-style furnishings and wares get a breath of new life with contemporary upholstery or when used in a new way—like a delicate vintage pitcher or urn becoming the perfect vessel for displaying fresh-cut flowers.
In the master suite, Linda accessorized the bed with vintage linens found in an antiques shop in England’s Cotswolds. Shams featuring red turkey stitch bring a sprinkling of color to the sunlit space, as do the blue-and-white ginger jar lamps and floral cushions propped in a pair of wicker chairs. Fresh-cut flowers from the garden add both color and charm.
