The regal antique chair sits in the home of dreamer extraordinaire Yasmine McGrane, who runs the fabulous, French-inspired shop Maison Rêve in Mill Valley, just outside of San Francisco. Atop her French, flea-market find covered in vintage hemp linen lies one of her prized possessions: a golden letter "Y" that was given to her as a wedding gift. Next to this personality packed object rests a stack of vintage Belgian seed sacks, and a pillow covered in one of them. And then there's the lowly sewing machine table -- minus the machine -- that McGrane just painted white and added crystal knobs.
Why do I love this image so much? Because it shows that no matter what you choose to decorate with -- be it a worthless table or a priceless chair -- a bit of creative thinking can turn almost any vintage or thrift find into a true treasure.
