"My husband and I just moved into our brand new home. I had no idea how to work with such a blank canvas. I was recommended Iris at the Antiquarian Print Shop. She was so kind giving me lots of advice as to what prints would work in various parts of our home. She even gave me the best tips on how to frame the prints I bought. I cannot thank Iris and the team at Antiquarian enough. My new home looks amazing thanks to their help."
