Where did you shop for the items in your home? Do you prefer new items or antique and flea market finds?

I prefer a mix of high- and low-priced pieces as much as I like to mix old and new furniture. I try to be realistic about decor; we rent and these pieces will move around with us. Nothing is too precious, but we’ve collected a few pieces that will stay with us for years to come. I do believe that good taste will get you more bang for your buck . . . an Ikea bookshelf looks incredible when used the right way. Also, check out estate sales!
