My picks: luxe vintage interiors

My boyfriend, grandmother, mom and I are planning a big antiquing trip this weekend. It’s an annual thing for us and I’m so excited I can’t quite stand it. I usually come away with lots of vintage jewelry (I once found a vintage LANVIN necklace for around $70 – a huge bargain, considering the vintage pieces often range in the thousands) and interesting knick-knacks for my home (like the headless mannequin that sits in my bedroom.) This year, I will certainly be looking for jewelry but, perhaps most importantly, I need things for my guest bedroom and a floor lamp for my living room. Below, some recent sources of interior inspiration. (Can you tell I’m having a 70s moment?)
