Susan finds many conversation-starting pieces at local antiques shops, during her travels to visit family members and at her favorite semiannual antiques fair in Round Top, Texas. If she can’t find or afford a piece she wants, Scott can build it; among other things, he has re-created benches and cupboards based on her snapshots. Sometimes just the thrill of the hunt provides a sense of decorating fulfillment on an average day. If I am ever stressed or need a small getaway, I go to an antiques store, Susan notes. It’s a way to relax and renew, even if I do not buy anything.

So, we did our best to make this into a home that feels old

Wavy glass gives this brand-new kitchen built-in an antique effect making it perfect for displaying old tins and crockery.
