What's Old is New: How to Decorate your Home with Antiques

The Long Beach Antique Market is featured on the Redfin blog. Check out the expert tips on decorating with Antiques in this article by Alison Bentley. 
Designing your home can be one of the best ways to express your personality and flair. While there’s countless styles and places to buy furniture, there’s something special and one-of-a-kind about styling your home with antiques.
Vintage items add character to your home
Incorporating vintage items into your home décor creates a unique design statement – vintage adds character to any space. Shopping outdoors at the Long Beach Antique Market is a fun way to discover one-of-a-kind treasures. Repurposing an old copper pot with orchids works as a centerpiece, finding a globe from the 1970’s with a lucite base, a vintage bar cart with glassware, a grouping of different height brass candlesticks for your dining room table, a vintage rug to pull a room together – make it your own. – Long Beach Antique Market
