Old World
Design Society

A publication and private society for individuals who cherish the design and lifestyle elements of a bygone era. A place for those who believe in lived-in spaces, heirloom pieces, and that ‘new is not always better’.

Craving

INSPIRATION?

Velvet sofas, gilded frames, ironstone, hand-sewn linens, vintage books, regal estates, and charming cottages? If words like these are a part of your language, it can be difficult to find your way through a maze of all-white social media feeds. As a part of the Old World Design Society, you’ll have access to rich, inspiring creativity and education and, best of all, you’ll meet friends who speak your language.

In the Old World Design Society, you will enjoy a touch of richness, history, and inspiration, not just to create “my look in your home” but to develop your very own, Old World.

Meet Angela

ABOUT THE CURATOR

In 2005 with a desire to combine her love for rural living and her francophile passions, Angela Reed created the website “Parisienne Farmgirl”. Since then, she has been passionate about developing “joie de vivre”, a joy of living in an old-world inspired atmosphere and lifestyle. She now lives on a 27-acre farm tucked deep in the cozy woods of Door County, Wisconsin.

Moments from the sapphire waters of Lake Michigan, she spends her days tending to her potager gardens and caring for her children, and remodeling her home with her husband and six children. Her own personal design challenge involves taking her outdated 1980’s eco-house and transforming it into a “true” Old World farmhouse. It’s her desire to share that journey with other women as they cultivate a rich sense of home together.

What Others Have to Say

Testimonials

Society Member H.K.

Being a member, a very new one, has shown me that I am not alone. Feeling like an outcast among friends and family for being an “old soul” I am now validated. My style and sense of being appears on page after page of your magazine. Thank you.

Society Member R.D.

I pulled the spring edition out the other day and my husband asked if he could look at it again. He flips through it and said “THIS! This is what I’m always talking about. This whole thing is quality. Not only are the materials of quality but the content…I feel like you’ll be pulling this off the shelf for years”
The man is not wrong! And even he is looking forward to the next print 🖤 I’m squealing with delight

Society Member N.L.
