This is my sort of decorating…different shades of white, hints of blue, green or grey in varying forms, loads of pillows and slipcovers….and heaps of vintage love – mirrors, furniture etc.
I am not one to follow trends, but I love how this style will look great still in 10 years time and not be pigeonholed into any one era. Which also means I can keep digging in markets, garage sales, op shops and the like (which I was doing on the weekend) for treasures to always keep this style fresh to me.
This makes me smile =0)
Office spaces that free your mind so you can create without colour ‘noise’. A calming space. My own office is filled with not much else but white and hints of neutral colours and I love to be in there sewing away. The only real hits of colour in there is from flowers and the big sycamore tree which I view from through the French door…and I like that. The metal filing drawers are the statement piece here and I am happy to say i am the owner of a much smaller industrial vintage filing cabinet which I picked up on the weekend while digging in an old barn with my Uncle and Auntie…it was great. I cant wait to show you.
Marie Claire I can never get enough of white dishes, plates, etc. To me, these are sculptural pieces that can be such a finishing touch a room needs. Filled with old linen or ceramic balls, fruit, flowers, candles…etc. Lets not forget blue and white china. I was lucky enough to have my sweet Aunt and Uncle (who I was digging in the barn with for the filling cabinet) give me a lovely blue and white ginger jar to add to my collection today.
…and who can forget vintage linens?
These are high on my list of materials to use in a room. re purposing them, like the lift blind I made last week is something I am always doing. You would know I have a thing for pillows/cushions and grain sacks. Vintage linens have so many uses and are only limited to your imagination.
Just a few elements I love.
PS- I have been on a mission lately and have bought quite a few items to fix up…some are hideously ugly and some not so bad, but all in need of a good makeover – and you know how I love a makeover!!
It is my mission this week to take some time for my own projects and do as many of these projects as I can…of course there will be photos =0)
