Architectural salvage is one of the my absolute favorites, when it comes to home decor and decorating.   I love bringing something that is old and perhaps a bit industrial, and repurposing it with an air of elegance.   Architectural salvage can be hard to come by, depending on where you live, but I put together a few tips for where to find it, how to source it, and the best deals.  I’ve also compiled 25+ GORGEOUS ideas for decorating with architectural salvage in your home.

Most commonly sourced architectural salvage items (used with decorating):   windows, matels, finials, mirrors, iron/cast work, wood flooring and columns.

To maximize your available budget, limit your shopping to the element of your project with the most ‘WOW’ factor – such as a huge mirror, antique doors, or reclaimed flooring.

Here are some GORGEOUS ideas and inspiration for decorating done right, with architectural salvage.


I totally just had one of my favorite sandwiches for dinner. It's complete junk food, but it's so good. And, I was home alone and didn't have to cook dinner. Have you ever had a peanut butter and marshmallow cream sandwich? This is like one of my favorite sandwiches. Add baked cheetos for a little extra bad for you food, and I'm a happy camper. What's your favorite unhealthy (or healthy) sandwich? #farmhousedreamsabk
