My name is Giuliana Albanese, the proud owner and paint designer of White buffalo vintage; I am very excited to share my journey & passion with all of you. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and this boutique.
It all started in 2016 in my garage one day, I looked at one of my partner’s antique collection & he had an old dresser that was sitting there all beaten up & lifeless. Something told me to bring it back to life & give it some colour. So I picked up a brush & old chalk paint that was there and began. The beauty that it became and its history got me instantly hooked & it was like a music to me.
That is how I discovered my passion & I have never looked back since! We ended up with over 250 pieces in my home! That is when I knew it was time to take this to next level, to find a space & share our passion by opening a store!
Being hearing impaired, painting is my music and my truly therapeutic & inaugurate my inner passion. So I will be also offering painted furniture I curated, hand painted carefully. My work is about appearance of age, sign of wear & tear or where new items are distressed to achieve the antique appearance. At same time a soft opulent yet cottage style décor often with an affected feel is emphasized to deferment it from genuine period décor .
