Using pieces with historic interest For Home Design
If you want to add interest to a room, incorporate one item from a different era and showcase it as the room’s show piece. This could be a rocking chair in front of a fireplace. It could be a blanket box at the end of a bed or a four poster bed. Having something of historic value really does add to the way that the room is seen by people and you may just want to use items passed down through the family. An alternative is to find items at garage sales and spruce them up and use them as center pieces, because there certainly are bargains to be had.
If you don’t have heirloom pieces, then why not paint a piece of furniture as a center piece. Sometimes, that newly painted item can really set the room off and look very interesting indeed. You can even try your hand at different finishes since there is so much special effect paint on offer these days that’s it’s easy to create a masterpiece for the fraction of the price that one would cost you, had you bought it already finished to your requirements.
