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.
