As an interior designer I am always telling people to mix things up.  It's so important to incorporate different textures, materials, colors, and styles into your home.  And it's also a great idea to decorate with items from various time periods.

Sometimes when I say "vintage" or "antique," people immediately tune out because their style is modern.  But your local antique stores can be a great resource to find unique vintage pieces that will really compliment a more contemporary style.  With that in mind, I stopped into one of my favorite shops in Elkhart, Antiques and More on Beardsley Avenue.

Although there were many beautiful antiques, I was on the hunt for mid-century and vintage pieces that would be right at home in a contemporary setting.  Much to my delight, I found a fantastic vintage globe that fit the bill!

This piece has a few key aspects that would allow it to fit into a home with a modern style.  I love its monochromatic color scheme, and the sleek plastic base that it rests on.  The best part is that it's unique.  Your home should reflect your individual perspective, and using antique and vintage pieces is a great way to achieve that. So remember, antiques stores are a great resource no matter what your style
