Out with the New, In with the Old

White Italian Bead Mirror; White vignette
Happy New Year 2014! Out with the new, and in with the old, I say -- with gorgeous
antiques, that is!

I recently discovered this white Italian bead mirror (above) at one of my favorite antique stores in Los Angeles, The Mart Collective. This mirror is one of the many treasures I've
taken home from The Mart Collective, a design-lovers' dreamland featuring vintage and antique pieces from dozens of vendors.  I'm obsessed with the variety, the beautiful presentation, and lovely owners and staff.

On my latest trip, I gathered more wonderful ideas, took some photos, and may have even picked out a few more gems (don't tell my husband :) ). Here is a photo tour of the store's latest...
