Home decorating with vintage finds

"I love that when friends visit our home, they immediately get a sense of who we are—from pillows on the couch to the collections on the bookshelves,” Meg Mateo Ilasco says of the interior of her midcentury bungalow that was once devoid of personality.

See how they mixed these family finds with their own upbeat style.
