Use flea market finds no matter what your style!

Even more than buying something new, I enjoy the thrill of finding something for a steal and turning it into something you could never find in stores. I think that is partially the essence of shopping at flea markets and thrift stores. However, it doesn't mean you're stuck decorating a vintage or shabby chic style.

The frames are all flea market - and the wine jugs as well

Collections always make interesting decor.

If you want to display a range of things but keep it looking neat make sure they all share a characteristic - like color. Notice the platter behind the bowl is hung backwards with twine to display the artist's name.

The eclectic look is perfect for decorating on a budget. Found textiles look almost glamorous when mixed and matched like above. The decorative piece of iron on the wall is also salvaged.

Love the picture frames staggered on the wall in the first photo :) I also love finding things I know no one else has - it really makes me feel like my place is unique.
