Leah French is a home design writer, editor, and interior decorator who furnishes -- it's an ongoing, evolving project -- her home with antique and vintage finds from flea markets, yard sales, and other secondhand sources.
Leah has more than 15 years of professional experience as an interior decorator. She's been scouring flea markets, yard sales, and thrift stores for more years than she's willing to admit. As an established writer, her work appears in numerous places, such as Victorian Homes, Romantic Homes, and Flea Market Decor magazines.
I prefer old things -- objects with histories. I enjoy wondering about the past owners and their lives. In addition to the obvious environmental benefits of repurposing and restoring vintage home furnishings, there's something very satisfying about turning discards into beautiful, functional pieces.
