Vintage Treasures Vignette

Create a focal point, such as the rustic mirror in this fireplace mantel display, to pull a group of objects together.

"The worn patina of the mirror brings an element of history to this grouping," explains Fiona Richards, the Nelson, B.C. artist behind the inspiring Cafe Cartolina blog and owner of Cartolina Cards. "If you don't have space for large items, creating a still life or vignette of finds can bring a stylish reclaimed element to even the most conservative space."
