The Find: Light & Bright

When a high school friend showed me one of her thrift finds on Twitter yesterday, I was reminded of the magic that Turquoise Design's Vanessa DeVargas works with second-hand pieces. In this out-take from The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, photographer Bob Greenspan captures a classic black and white design scheme that's accented with juicy pops of green in the designer's Venice beach home.

The Asian-style table found at a garage sale got a clever paint job that reflects the seat cushion across the room and the zebra-print rug on which it sits. When it comes to displaying her favorite vintage decorating books (many of which I own myself!), DeVargas shows them off in a Lucite box designed with Jordan Cappella to double as a one-of-a-kind side table.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
