The New Old South

This southern home spotted recently in Country Living, really demanded my attention. It was the image above that immediately drew me in. That clever grid of framed pressed flowers above the vintage church  pew…doesn’t this vignette make such a bold, even modern statement?  Using traditional pieces with vintage finds in new unexpected ways is really the freshest thing catching my eye these days.  Check out the rest of this refined and inspired home here.
