Purposely Re-purposed

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour…
-William Blake

It’s the unique mosaic of authenticity that makes a house a home – a coveted collection of memories and inspirations that lie quietly within each keepsake that decorates our most exclusive space. Colder temperatures and more time spent indoors makes winter the ideal time to refresh your sense of creativity – building upon this comforting domestic collage.

The Berkshires are surrounded by the arts, including its plethora of antique shops that add to our rich history and inspire imagination.  Upcycling is the art of bringing new life to old or unusable materials.  Some of our favorite “upcycled” goods come from repurposed antiques.  Feed bags, door knobs, bottle crates, jars, tools, frames – the possibilities are endless – all lend themselves to unique opportunities for upcycled projects that will give your home that whimsical flair and distinct personality.
