Home Tour: Rebecca Bancroft of Trove Decor

One of the things that so many of us who live in Newtown Borough have in common is a hearty nostalgia for Mayberry RFD.  Porch culture, back yard bar-b-ques, pick up soft ball games, summer outdoor movie nights, parades for nearly every occassion, Santa arriving on the volunteer fire truck, and market day where you can get the best hand made kettle corn made since, I don't know, 1800? Its draws us in and keeps us here.  So do the folks we get to call neighbors.  I moved next door to Rebecca in 1996, she is unfailingly generous and throws a mean party, for 4, 10, or 50!  The first person at your door with warm muffins, or fresh cut flowers "just because", she is equal parts welcoming committee, concerned citizen, and mother's helper should you need her.  I like to call her the mayor. With three children and as many pets under foot, Rebecca (along with her two partners who you'll see here in the coming months) has slowly grown one of the most compelling and original home furnishing companies into something of a mecca for the house proud among us. Their recent invite as taste makers onto One Kings Lane, has launched them to a much wider (and national ) audience, making their re-purposed found furnishings all the more covetable.  Here is a little peek into the home where all the magic happens.
