Absolutely nothing inspires me as much as travel. Even if it's for work and sometimes, especially if it's for work.
Earlier this summer I flew to Denver to photograph some of the new inventory at Old Glory Antiques for owner Holly Kuhn. If you find yourself lucky enough to be anywhere near the Denver area, this store is worth a detour.
Holly keeps an ever changing inventory of architectural antiques and American furniture with that "just right" authentic patina that just can't be duplicated.
I think the most interesting homes are layered with antiques, vintage and new upholstered pieces. Holly speaks my language at her shop. She also avoids my antique shop pet peeve of overcrowding the merchandise and is so good at styling her vignettes and creating artful moments that inspire.
The texture and patina in this shot...I can't even. It's delicious.
The editors at Flea Market Decor Magazine think Holly and Old Glory are pretty awesome too and have featured the store in their Fall 2016 issue. In the feature, Holly shares her styling secrets and advice on finding and decorating with antiques. It's good stuff.
