I have so much love for homes filled with vintage furniture - lovingly uncovered at flea markets and car boot sales and restored so they have a new purpose. My house is rather more ikea-ified than that, as I fear I just don't have the patience and perseverance to hunt down exactly what I want (I have been looking for a tv cabinet which is exactly 95cm wide for approximately forever to fit in the right alcove in my living room). I do have a few vintage and repurposed bits and bobs around the house though, and they definitely make it feel more homely and individual.
These two suitcases are a vanity and letter writing case respectively. The top one was £8 from Battersea car boot and the bottom one was from a vintage fair a few years ago and was about £12 I think. Now they hold my scarves and belts.
These two plates were a gift from my grandma to my mum, and eventually ended up with me. The drawings are I think by an artist local to my grandparents, of the seaside town of Rye, and the different sections of the plates make them perfect for serving snacks and nibbles.
This Fortnum and Mason hamper (alas empty!) is not so much vintage as repurposed. My parents get one from my dad's work almost every year, and so we are using this one as a coffee table in the living room at the moment!
This is an ebay find - I have wanted a proper dressing table for ages, and although I still don't have the actual dressing table, that hasn't stopped me from buying things to go on it! This is a 1930s Czech or German glass tray, and I love the angular pattern on it, which is quite different to a lot of the cut glass dressing table trays I have seen.
The house came with approximately five million shelves in it, and although we have taken out most of them, these ones in the kitchen are still up (for now!) and just perfect for displating all my vintage cocktail and tableware. The two silver cocktail shakers in need of a good polish were from ebay, the orange glass jug and cups were from Greenwich market, the mushroom shaped cruet set was a present from my mum and the babysham glasses I have been collecting from vintage shops for ages. I had to tell my mum to stop buying them for me in the end, as I now have loads (at least as many again as I have here) and they really are too small to drink out of (you get about three sips of champagne in each) but they look nice on display!
Finally my pine bedside table was given to me by my grandparents who no longer needed it (they are such a good source of vintage furniture!) but I have to admit this photo is more about my not vintage but ever so pretty bunny rabbit lamp I received for Christmas from James!
