The new millennium has brought about plenty of amazing trends, technologies and accessories. But there’s something so enticing about the early 1900s! Perhaps it’s the timeless pieces that fit in modern homes, or maybe it’s the sophistication and detail. Whatever it is, I love it! You can give your home a 1900s feel by bringing in one or many staples from the era. Here are some pieces that are totally the turn of the century:
From the frame to the couch to the curtains, the details are impeccable.
