“We don’t want to make them shiny or chic. They have become a part of our life and our decor as they are. So, I’ve decided to call this style Rustic Renaissance. ”
For years James and I have been collecting old things that we use for purposes other than what they were originally intended. Some become art while others take on a new life with new purpose. From old camera equipment to a bird bath rusted through, we find them beautiful as they are and use them to decorate KearceCrafted Farms.
During the past few weeks I’ve been trying to decide what that style of decor is called. We see it everywhere: restaurants, retail stores, television, photography… But it doesn’t seem to have a name.
Shabby chic is the closest style I can find, but even that dresses old items up with paint and accessories to make them “chic.”
We love these items when we find them and don’t want to reinvent them.
