Restoration with Brett Waterman March 11 2017

We are in the business of selling furniture and goods with a past here at Urban Americana.  It is our passion. There is something romantic about honoring the history that comes with buying and collecting antique and vintage items.  Our goal is to keep the history of each piece alive.  That is exactly what Brett Waterman does with the homes he restores.  Brett is a preservationist specializing in restoring historical homes by peeling back decades of questionable design decisions and restoring living spaces to their original glory.

We were lucky to have Brett Waterman stop by our store recently with his new show on the HGTV/DIY Network, Restored.  In each hour episode, Brett transforms one character-filled house for the couple or family who owns it. Brett focuses on homes with fascinating stories and unrealized hidden potential. Urban Americana is featured in episode 10, click here for show times.

When restoring a home, it is important to acknowledge its history. Whether you have a Spanish Revival, Bungalow, Craftsman or Mid Century Ranch you can mix the old with the new, vintage with modern modern while staying true to the integrity of the home.

We look forward to welcoming Brett back to Urban Americana and will continue to enjoy watching him transform homes on HGTV/DIY Network's Restored
