What’s Old Is New

Although the picture-perfect spaces presented within the pages of Pottery Barn catalogs are worthy of admiration, they should serve only as a springboard for ideas. Good design and, further, real-life, lived-in and loved rooms, incorporates old and new finds, says Vern. The designer shops thrift stores and flea markets for items that add big bang for the buck. “You want things that have character and soul,” he adds.
