With this month's green theme at AT, we've been thinking a lot lately about the state of our planet. Not that we're normally not green-conscious, we're just a little extra aware with soaring gas prices, super hot weather and most recently, the purchase of our new hybrid car (love it)...
While we were thinking of how we could apply this in our home, we came across the most wonderful architectural salvage yard and are currently thinking of ditching the day job in lieu of a road trip north to go and check it out.
Taipan Architectural Salvage yard is located in Santa Barbara and has a curious array of reclaimed doors, windows, lighting, lumber…you name it. If you're shopping for remodeling supplies or just interested in acquiring pieces filled with character, this is the place. They even specialize in original modern furniture and licensed reproductions. If you end up spending a ton of money, at least you can feel good about it.
