So I don’t know about ya’ll but I would looooove to find a cheap, falling apart house (preferably lake side, with mountain views) to completely gut and renovate someday. And you can bet the renovation would include a lot of salvaged architecture. I found a bunch of cool pieces on the website for Architectural Salvage Warehouse (in Vermont) and got to daydreaming.


Years ago, I saw in a magazine how a phone booth had been integrated into the interior of a room. They had placed the booth in the entry way between a family room and kitchen so that you walked through the booth to get from one to the other. It was super cool.

How awesome would these look in a built in kitchen hutch? Can you see it?

It’s a wonder it took this long for library file cabinets and mail sorters, such as this one, to become popular in residential design. I look at this and think, “Holy cow, BC needs this for all the crap stacked in boxes in his apt.”

Whilst perusing this month’s Elle Decor, I came across a beautiful kitchen where the island, which was an old looking wood piece, had been affixed with vintage door pulls. V. cool.

Go Architectural Salvage Warehouse!
