Decorating With Antiques by Caroline Clifton-Mogg

3 Things I Like About This Book:

  • This book is all about using the pieces we love in our home, no matter if they are antique, vintage or new. There are a lot of great examples showing how to mix pieces from different periods, even different cultures.
  • Tons and tons of great pictures illustrating all the points made in the book. All areas of decorating are covered including Furniture, Fabrics, Objects/Ornaments, Collections and Lighting. There’s also a section at the back of the book that goes into detail about the different “antique styles” including English, European, American and Eastern. Very informative book!
  • There are lots of different styles of decorating throughout the book. My favorite were the more traditional designs but even the eclectic rooms had enough traditional elements in them to keep me happy. This isn’t just a pretty picture book. Though there are lots of wonderful pictures throughout, this book really goes into detail helping the reader learn how to incorporate antiques of all kind into the modern-day home.

    Hi, I ordered the book from Amazon, “used” for….get this…$1.53. It is “yellowed” but I don’t care, since it is an “idea” book. I decorate and have a passion for antiques. My whole house is antique and I decorate with seasonal antiques as well. So I am hauling out and putting in fresh items alot….my hobby. Keep up the good blogging. I look forward to it every day. I have lots of projects too. Sherry

    • I almost always order “used” too, prices are always so good for their used books. Thanks Sherry for kind words…appreciate that so much! 🙂

  2. Love this post, I’ve never heard of this title, but that aesthetic is totally me! Thank you for sharing!

  3. Susan, will need to order this one. It’s new to me. Loved what Sherry S had to say above. I, too, look forward to your posts. I admire your enthusiasm for blogging. I’m still lagging behind, but working on doing better this year.
