The European mindset that is at the very center of the Euro Trash aesthetic; beauty is here to be enjoyed, shared, and celebrated in every aspect of life. That mindset, coupled with a drive to inspire self expression is at the very heart of Euro Trash.- Annie Bahler Smith
“The husband, a retired professional baseball player, gave his wife the Hermès jumping saddle as a gift.”
The custom dining table is built from 700-year-old Syrian oak beams that look “almost petrified,” the designer says.
“Tosk, the family’s Arabian, grazes in front of the limestone entertaining cottage. To remove old varnish from the salvaged doors, Brahler-Smith sprayed on a mixture of lye and water, then sealed the raw wood with clear paste wax.”
“The tack room door is made from reclaimed tongue-and-groove floor planks and finished with a brass pull from an old mail slot.”
Brahler-Smith, who flanked an antique Dutch table with a pair of vintage distressed-leather wing chairs, doesn’t worry about wear and tear. “If something gets stained or broken, that’s a scar from life, and it’s beautiful,” she says.
