I once aspired to design my home’s interior the way I saw design done in my favorite home decor catalogs, which is to say I chased an aesthetic that was white, pristine, and contemporary. But doubling down on what’s new and in style left little room for displaying trinkets with stories, passed-down but quality furniture, and antiques that infuse uniqueness.
I had created a beautiful space, yes, but it was an impersonal one. Unimaginative, even.
This week, I speak with interior designer and host of HGTV Obsessed, Marianne Canada. From a design standpoint, Marianne believes weathered-but-lovely decor and furniture give homes character, and so she’s on the show to explain how we can incorporate old(er) but quality items into our interior design in ways that feel both natural and decidedly minimalist.

Here’s a preview of this week’s episode:
[4:00] 3 specific ways to insert family heirlooms and antiques without “forcing it”
[9:30] How to display trinkets sans visual chaos
[11:30] Anti-consumer ways to refresh your decor without heading to the store
[17:30] How listeners who inherited quality but dated furniture can learn to love it
[27:30] What to consider before attempting a DIY decor project at home
