Whatever you want to call it. Think Joanna Gaines or our newest salvage find designer, Leanne Ford.
It can be cool, modern, and beautiful. Most of all, they give your home that “One-Of-A-Kind.” look we all crave. You can take a plain box of a room and give it architectural detail and patina. Oh! And whimsey. Never underestimate the power of a little bit of a whimsical element.
Besides the hunt is just so damn fun. So many great places to visit and stories to tell while you’re hunting for salvage. Grab a friend, make a plan and go hunting. Or check out this post about designing with salvage (and a great book to get too!).

Just remember to channel your inner designer goddess, and make your house unique with a salvage find. You’d be amazed how easy it is to incorporate a door, window or corbel into your home. Or check out how we created our own art out of salvaged finds.
