Vintage Beauty...Decorating Ideas






Beautiful vintage decorativing ideas...
Lovely and creative way to showcase family heirlooms and vintage finds by George Krauth in his bungalow ~ enlarged and framed, an old letter sent by a great-grand mother to a great-uncle in 1917, using a favourite place or town maps instead of wallpaper, grouped metal souvenir buildings and monuments and a bedroom cabinet filled with beautiful vinatge finds.

Endless inspiration!
