Architectural Antiques in Home Design

At Home on the Range Interiors we love to use architectural antiques to add layers and to bring a sense of history into the homes we work on. This is particularly important in second homes where our clients are starting fresh we don’t have the benefit of using their family heirlooms and items from their years of travel and collecting.  We are constantly on the search for pieces that have a lot of textural interest and a patina that only comes with age.  What never ceases to amaze us is how beautifully the colors of age old pieces blend with contemporary design .  When you are putting a room together, try juxtaposing older pieces with newer pieces  in the room to give it more interest and depth. Below we’re sharing a few decorative architectural artifacts , along with photos of rooms  designed by Home on the Range where architectural antiques have been integrated into the design .
