Sometimes it’s hard to visualize how old furniture can look modern, but it can. Vintage furniture is so beautifully made that it is a shame to toss it out and replace with something from Ikea. Instead, turn it into a statement piece. It’s good for the environment too. Upcycle is chic. Check out what PreLovedStyle and Material Recovery on Etsy are doing.

A trip to Morocco is on my adventure wish list. In the meantime, I’ll have to be satisfied with touches of Morocco in our home.
Because beige is so boring. Get inspired by Mr. Bazaar.
