Our French Cloister Planks come in a beautiful oxidized patina, heavily brushed surface and hand scraped edges. These planks come from the Lorraine region of France. They are dried in a open field to create that oxidized patina.

We have many widths available as well as parquet strips such as Chevron and Herringbone.  Patina can be modified to a more grey finish with less or more brushing and/or a hand-scuplted surface.

Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Window coverings you can make

There are vintage textiles just waiting for a second chance to be designed into beautiful couture window coverings. At Second Shout Out we have some beautiful Antique French Textiles. If you have a little bit of sewing skills or your favorite Auntie has some then your set.  Add some vintage jewelry for trim if you want some sparkle. Maybe these ideas I curated for you will have you running for the scissors, remember don’t run with them!

My design tip: Keep your eye out for vintage textiles, lace and trims. The only way to get something one of a kind is to use vintage pieces.
Have a beautiful weekend.

Pillows Inspired Through Travels to Italy
These designs were inspired through travels to Italy exploring architectural salvage yards where you find the most amazing hand-painted reclaimed Italian  antique tiles. If you have ever visited one of these places in Italy, then we share this vivid picture in our mind.  There are racks and racks of these beautiful tiles and it is quite a visual treat. These pillows are  unique and artistic.  We wanted the designs and colors to be authentic, just like the tiles.  They are antique in design and we really feel they  would look equally great in a traditional, rustic  or modern home.

Old World Jug

What a find! This huge vintage glass jug and metal basket embodies the essence of what we love about old world charm. The dark wooden stopper, rusty basket, and the romantic remnant of cloth all point to a world of days gone by. It would make a one of a kind presence in any room.

Some wonderful Vintage Utility and Storage finds

This vintage French ladder makes a casual yet powerful addition to any room. At 89 inches tall, we love the feeling of height that it would bring into a space.

At Second Shout Out we think about how to live creatively with our furnishings and simply what does quality really mean.. Not just about buying things but about picking an item that will be part of our family and home for years to come.  Asking questions like “Will this piece have style and will it last in 5, 10, 20 or 25 years?” Questions we can ask ourselves are not only about the style and how it will enhance our enviroment but about the quality it will bring.  Will these pieces with-stand years to come. This is why antiques and vintage are so valuable to us. By shopping on SSO we cna see the proof of most of our decor and furnishings come from many centuries ago. These treasures have traveled years through people’s lives, moved across the country and sometimes across the globe which makes them even more special. Generations of passing on our treasures as life will and does go on. This is part of our journey and part of all the treasures we collect on our journey. Start Collecting.

French and Swiss Mountain Chairs

Tyrolean chairs also called Mountain Chairs, are wonderfully hand carved out of wood.  Typically found in swiss and french alps in mountain homes and used around the dining table. The chairs have a stylish folk art feel and come in a range of wood colors from light oak, ash and dark pine.

We love these chairs because they work in many interiors from contemporary to a wabi style.
