From the authors of Extraordinary Interiors: Decorating with Architectural Salvage and Antiques comes a whole new source of decorating inspiration. No matter the style or location of a home, architectural salvage can quickly add character and charm to any room, whether it's with an old soapstone sink in a suburban bungalow or a Victorian wrought-iron railing recast as a fireplace screen in an urban high-rise apartment. The possibilities are endless-and with the right amount of imagination and a slightly mischievous attitude, architectural salvage can pack a delightfully beautiful decorating punch.
Find out the answers to common questions such as "How do I use an old stained glass window that isn't the right size?" or "What exactly is the right type of mantel for my home?" Brian Coleman reveals the simple truth to decorating with salvage-embrace the imperfections, as they add a patina of time that is hard to reproduce. This book also includes a foreword by Old House Interiors editor Patricia Poore and contributions from a forum of salvage experts from across the country.
