One Man's Junk is Another Man's Treasure

We have a confession...when we're on the road, one of our favorite pastimes is to transform the rooms we stay in. Nothing major, just reaccessorizing with our proudly won "treasures." So when we came across an article about Butch Anthony in the New York Times, we were thrilled---his aesthetic is a mix between found-chic and minimalism. We've attached some shots of our visits to New England, in which we "transformed" our rooms. Though we're coming from opposite ends of the compass, both aesthetics are warm and inviting, yet elegant.

  1. Fantastic. I'm beginning to think that good design begins with a thorough house cleaning. Love, love, love, the art. Peace.
