3. Go Treasure Hunting

The dining room exemplifies Abercrombie’s perseverance: The hutch is full of her husband’s aunt’s dinnerware, which she recovered from her previous home after Hurricane Katrina. Everything else in the space is a family heirloom, an antique, or purchased from local consignment shops. “I shopped vintage a lot,” says Abercrombie. “I wanted the house to look like it had been here for a while; I didn’t want to buy all new furniture.”

Get the look: The hutch is from British Traditions. The cushion fabric is Exchequer from Brunschwig & Fils. The table is from Patina Interiors; 985/892-3733. The chairs are from Scott Antique Markets.
