Wanderlusting After Found Objects

Summer is over and if we haven't been on vacation, we're dreaming of being on vacation. One of our favorite autumn activities is visiting antique markets, flea markets and yard sales for found objects to add to our dÈcor.† These found objects can transport us to another time or place and satisfy our wanderlust... or inspire more.† These are a few found objects we're (wander)lusting after right now. No passport needed to explore these decorating ideas.

Taking a found object out of its context can transform the ordinary into the sublime. Did you guess what this object is? Vintage bedsprings! Would be great in a garden or framed as modern sculpture.

A collection of found objects and furnishings can transport us to the south of France or the south of India. Love the cement balls for the garden.

Found objects can transport us not only to faraway lands but to a time gone by. Vintage silver trophies are plentiful at flea markets and online.† Pick a favorite and start your collection.

Unlock adventures with vintage books. Vintage adventure books can satisfy a wanderlust craving for a few dollars and look great on a shelf or beside a bed. Using your imagination and implementing functionality and form is what interior design ideas is all about.

A sun bleached white cottage interior feels inviting with a mix of new and found objects. A simple palette of driftwood beige and white unifies the eclectic collection.

A collection of vintage tea tins is perfect for an Anglophile. These found tins can be repurposed and reused in so many ways. Love them as vases for a summer tea party.
