We’re all about living the green life this month at At Home, and one of our very favorite ways to be eco chic is with antiques! That’s why we’re giving away a copy of the gorgeous book Heirloom Modern: Homes Filled with Objects Bought, Bequeathed, Beloved, and Worth Handing Down by Hollister Hovey, photography by Porter Hovey, published by Rizzoli New York.
Chosen as an editor’s pick in our July issue, Heirloom Modern opens up the homes of individuals and couples to show how they use decor to give their residences a sense of history and autobiography, seamlessly integrating inherited keepsakes, curiosities, collections and memorabilia.
About the Authors: Hollister Hovey is the creator of the history-laden lifestyle blog “Hollister Hovey.” Porter Hovey is a photographer and real esate agent. Together, the sisters are the founders of the interior decorating firm Hovey Design. Their nostalgia-highlighting aesthetic has been featured multiple times in the New York Times, as well as House Beautiful, Domino, Elle and Design Sponge.

“Our most treasured heirloom is our grandfather’s tiny cardboard suitcase he used when immigrating to the United States from Italy. It still contained a pair of round spectacles, a shaving brush, and family correspondence. Each and every item is treasured.”
