Working with Antiques

Posted on Wednesday, January 20th, 2010 in Uncategorized

When you purchase an antique, it certainly has financial value.  It should also, however, have aesthetic value.  You can enhance the look of your  home and enjoy the antique that you’ve purchased by kleeping a few key ideas in mind.  Antiques from Phoenix Ancient Art, and many other esteemed locations, can add depth, beauty and style to the home.
1. Frame your antiques.  Rather than simply filing away an antique coin or postcard, have it framed and place it on a prominent wall in the house.
2. Recreate a time period.  One great way to use an antique is to design the décor of an entire room around the antique. If you’ve purchased a large Medieval sword, create a look of Medieval elegance in the dining room and display the piece prominently.
3. Mix old and new.  For an eclectic look, shake up your antiques a bit.  Place an antique in a room with a modern décor, calling attention to the juxtaposition and emphasizing this impressive piece.
