We've never picked up this magazine until recently, and we're pleasantly surprised: some of their house tours are amazing and relevant! This particular feature on the Crispell family home is inspiring to those of you who find the best decorating ideas at swap meets and flea markets (and Anthropologie). With their two kids in tow, this family regularly hits up the flea markets and estate sales to find treasures for their home.
[ Photo from Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion ]After perusing through some photos of their charming and eclectic home, we noticed that a lot of their decor is all about collections: gilded dollhouse chairs, Galaxy soda bottles, wedding cake couples, handmade shrines. The method to their decorating principle: "We savor simple, clean design, using our collections to add color, pattern, and texture."
Take look at this inspiring home at Mary Engelbreit Home Companion.
