I grew up in a house that looked more like a museum. My parents were passionate art collectors, and so I spent my childhood years surrounded by antique books and beautiful paintings. Ever since I can remember, I've loved the visual pleasure of a charming object, the way it sends emotional vibrations which may attract one to it without even knowing why. Every object has a story, a life - it was treasured and loved in beautiful, happy days, or maybe brought a tear to one’s eye on a day with clouded skies… I like to give an object from the past a new life in the present. I love the romantic, vintage charm of lace and ruffles, the beauty of embroidered damask, the delicate rustle of taffeta and the exquisite feeling of silk… I collect items with a special feel, be they clothing or home decor. As much as I appreciate the benefits of the new, I remain nostalgic for the old.
Most of the vintage…
