|Photograph by Jim Franco|
When I talk to those who've spent time with my book, The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrifty Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, this photograph, taken on the Fire Island getaway of Saltaire, remains among the most popular. Maybe its because of the bold colors that attract the eye, or a design concept that almost anyone can imagine achieving. Here, chairs of different shapes and sizes become unified, thanks to an established color theme of red, white and green, accenting both the chair rail and the original artwork hanging above it. This inviting vignette practically says, "Come in and stay awhile!"
Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,
