The Find: A Color Story























When grouping dissimilar shapes of objects, creating a color story can help create unity. Here, chairs of different shapes and sizes become made for each other, thanks to an established color theme of red, white and green. Photographed on Saltaire, one of the islands among Fire Island, by Jim Franco for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, these chairs also reflect the green in the chair rail and the colors in the original artwork hanging above it.

  1. how can I get a signed copy of your marvelous book? I didn't realize when I made the other comment it was you - he, he! Senor was our wedding DJ and we just met Jonona at their garage sale - I wanted that yellow bar that was featured in your book, but someone beat us to it darn it!
