"Found objects offer character, which is such a relief to all the matchy-matchy decorating styles available these days," says Fiona Richards, the Nelson, B.C. artist behind the inspiring Cafe Cartolina blog and owner of Cartolina Cards. "Look closely at this room: every element is from a different decade, using a different surface material — but it pulls together to create a cohesive and exciting space."
