Interior design is not always about starting with a blank canvas, sometimes when clients already have elements that they are attached to it helps drive the design and create a more personalized space. At Mix Home, some of our favorite pieces are found vintage from local second-hand stores. When shopping second-hand, it is easy to accumulate some amazing and one-of-a-kind pieces. 

Knowing that someone before you cherished a piece gives it so much more character. Vintage pieces can also add a touch of history to your room and bring an immense amount of character. Along with shopping for used pieces, keeping sentimental items from parents or grandparents is a great way to make your home personal and keep a tribute to loved ones. 

Our vintage Turkish rugs are a great way to add a subtle bit of culture and texture to a home. They have soft muted colors that make it easy to combine with newer elements. Along with something as simple as a rug or a pillow, clients have also found bigger pieces like lounge and dining chairs that can be spruced up with reupholstery or a new coat of paint. 

Shopping second hand for your home is an interesting and inexpensive way to add some character that is different from buying brand new. Next time you drive by your local vintage store don’t be afraid to wander and you may find a piece that is perfect for your home.

Let's Work Together

Good design takes time! We value all of our clients, past, present and future. Please note that due to high demand, we currently have a 45-60 day waitlist for new clients.

The first step for new clients is to fill out this form. Once submitted, we will send you a link to our new client questionnaire.

Once you've completed the new client questionnaire, we will review your answers and be in touch within 45-60 days to schedule our initial meeting at your home. This first meeting has a flat fee of $150 and is an information-gathering session. We meet you, measure your space, take photos, review your design needs and any architectural or builder blueprints that may be available, along with your saved design inspiration images.

Following that meeting, we will be in touch with an interior design proposal that addresses your project scope and will request a deposit for design services to get your project started.
