Antiques have been a passion of ours for many years, and we believe that they add a special charm and personality to any home. There is something about the beauty and history of each piece that speaks to us on a deep level. We love the stories behind each piece, the craftsmanship and skill that went into creating it, and the unique patina that comes with age.
Incorporating antiques into your home allows you to create a space that is warm, welcoming, and full of character. Each piece has its own unique story to tell, reflecting the wear and tear of time and adding depth and interest to your decor. We love how antiques bring a sense of history and cultural significance into our homes, reminding us of our past and connecting us to a larger community.

One of the things we love most about antiques is the craftsmanship and skill that went into creating each piece. They were made to last, with a level of quality that is hard to find in today's mass-produced items. From the hand-carved details on a piece of furniture to the intricate designs on a piece of pottery, antiques are a testament to the skill of the past and the beauty of handmade objects.
Antiques come in all shapes and sizes, from furniture to jewelry, from paintings to pottery, and everything in between. They offer endless possibilities for creating a unique and personalized home that reflects your personality and interests. By mixing old and new, you can create a space that is both timeless and modern.
We believe that antiques should be appreciated for their imperfections and patina. The wear and tear that comes with age adds character and depth to each piece, making them even more beautiful and special. They offer a glimpse into the past, reminding us of our history and cultural heritage.
In our book Patina Style, we encourage readers to embrace the beauty of antiques and to use them to create a warm and welcoming home that reflects their personalities and experiences. We share our tips and ideas for incorporating antiques into your own home, showing how they can add depth and interest to any space.
We love to hunt for antiques, whether it's at an antique store, a flea market, or even in our own attic or basement. The thrill of finding a hidden gem and uncovering its unique story is one of the joys of collecting antiques. Each piece has a story to tell, and the hunt for it is all part of the adventure.
Antiques are not just objects, they inform our way of life. They offer beauty, history, and character, and they have the power to transform any space. Their imperfect elegance allows us to embrace knicks and chips. By incorporating antiques into your home decor, you can create a space that is truly unique and full of personality. We hope that our passion for antiques inspires you to embrace the beauty of the past and incorporate it into your own home.
