“Vintage may define industrial salvage to hand-made chic, modern pop to quirky retro, but it will always evoke memory and feel surprisingly enduring.” A memento represents an object kept as a reminder or souvenir of a person, place or an event. The Inspired Lifestyle & Design of these interiors come with many stories. They celebrate a love for high touch and homemade things. They ensure passion for reclaiming, upcycling, refurbishing. They express sentiment in paintings, rustic surroundings, an old-fashioned fixture, a new-fangled furnishing. When discards become divine -- surely wear and tear, rust, peeling patina, and sought-after tarnish, can create the cool, creative, chic or cherished new forms of personal expression.
