House Tour: An Abyss of Antiques in Alameda

Tour of Terri and Chris Long's Home in Alameda, California

Knowing that I'm always on the hunt for one-of-a-kind interiors to tour, the lovely Reichel of Copy Cat Chic connected me with antique enthusiast Terri Long. Terri lives with her husband Chris in a seriously sophisticated home in Alameda, CA — around the corner from the renowned Alameda Flea Market.

Every corner of Terri's house is brimming with unique, elegant decorative accents with an earthy, French-industrial-meets-California-beach style. "Whether I go to flea markets, antique shops, eBay, or estate sales, I always have my eye open to beauty, particularly that which is natural or organic," says Terri, who calls herself "a treasure hunter." Pairing worn flea market finds with more polished pieces like a mirrored bookcase and sparkling crystal chandeliers, she's created a home that balances formality and casual chic to a T. Come along for the tour and prepare to be inspired! Be sure to also check out Terri's delightful design blog, La Dolfina.
