Stylish Patina in the news
Falls Church native Kelly Millspaugh Thompson’s company Stylish Patina is where vintage meets modern in home furnishings & decor. Kelly’s flair for finding vintage and antique pieces and giving them new life on a any budget is at the heart of her burgeoning success.
Her concepts center on the idea that home should be a comfortable place and design should be livable. Her innovative techniques in transforming furniture from old to new can be best experienced at her shop in Falls Church , Virginia, at her monthly rough luxe marketplace sales or seen on her internationally followed blog. For those that seek a more hands on experience, Kelly offers classes and design consultation. She just launched a Vintage Rental business as well focusing on events, wedding and photographers looking for a more curated experience.
Kelly was hand selected to be the local Stockist for Chalk Paint® decorative paints by Annie Sloan. Chalk Pain® is the latest “hot” product in the DIY industry. She also carries additional products that she personally uses and recommends for those that are transforming their own furniture. The shop is filled with a unique mix of vintage and new items hand curated by Kelly.
