Tween Daughter with Her Mother

Mom, Amy and dad Alan are huge supporters of the local arts community and lovers of all things vintage. To decorate the family's 1920 Craftsman home in Athens, Ga., they've mostly focused on finding one-of-a-kind pieces from small, locally owned-and-operated shops. "We look to the cool vintage shops in downtown Athens for pieces with style but that aren't so precious either, because in the end they may be covered with stickers," says Amy, who often includes Ellis and Camille when searching out pieces for their rooms. "Plus, we know most of the owners and would rather support them than go to a big-box store." As far as what draws Amy to antiques, quality and longevity are at the top of her list: "I'm a fan of buying something that was made well and has been around a while, rather than buying new and disposing of it when it falls apart. It's a way of thinking and living that Alan and I both hope filters down to the kids. That's another reason we buy vintage. Plus, it's cooler."
