Based in Tannersville, N.ew Y.ork, America Retold channels sophisticated country charm with its expansive collection of handmade furniture and home accessories. For the kitchen, classic glass butter dishes and pedestal-base bell jars, enamel white cake stands with scalloped edges, and bowls of antique nickel evoke 19th century farmhouse life; for the bath, white porcelain soap sets and no-polish nickel towel stands epitomize simplicity and minimalism. Signs made of recycled metal and white enamel are emblazoned with bits of wisdom ("don't let yesterday use up too much of today," "believe the little things are not always little") and work well in any room. Rooted in the past, American Retold products nevertheless complement decor from every era and style.
Imbue country charm into your interior design with these kitchen items, tableware, and home accents—from brightly colored oven dishes, sugar pots, and teakettles, to glass canisters and engraved bowls. And don’t miss one of this upstate New York company’s signature items, the covered cake stands, which practically beg you to get baking.
Gardening’s a lot more fun when you’ve got tools that are both inspiring to look at and a cinch to use—for instance, Alice & Company’s nautical- or candy-striped spade and tool sets. Add accessories to personalize the space: Go sleek with Jamie Young’s silver mercury-glass jars; or add weathered accents, like Barreveld’s distressed wood birdhouse, for a time-worn look.
