Home is...

...all in the detail.

A hotch-potch coffee pot and a beautiful old painting of geraniums in terracotta pots; where art imitates life - and life imitates art!

The vibrant, golden yellow of the freesia echoed in painted walls, a vintage curtain...

...and a pretty glass.

Keeping everything to hand.

Aged paintwork on an old wooden airer is softened by pretty vintage fabrics.

Relaxing in vintage style.

An eclectic mix of much-loved bits and pieces.

Finding the comfiest spot.

A place for dreams.

Floral splendour in the garden.

I hope you all enjoy these snapshots from our very own Vintage Home!


  1. Enjoyed them very much, thank you. All really beautiful and I've a soft spot for a furry face!

  2. That was all absolutely beautiful - thanks! Feel free to pop over and enter my giveaway (mainly French vintage stuff) if you'd like!

  3. Loved the photos! You have one of those houses that looks like it *is* vintage, rather than just has a few pieces dotted here and there. I hope you'll take that as the compliment it's meant to be :)

  6. Hello Clare
    Love the feel of your post. Yellow is a colour which I very much like but which does not appear to be used much generally. An underated colour! Your cat is gorgeous! Big cat fan here!
    Very pleased with my fabric and folral plaque thank you. I have mentioned the plaque in my last post.
    Take care

  8. What a lovely post, it really made me happy looking at all your glorious photo's, just fabulous. xxxx

  9. I absolutely adore the shots. What a gorgeous variety of vintage colours and patterns! I do love how our pets are so keen to be in the shots! Speak soon!

  10. Ooh, we had Dazlights for years! They belonged to my parents and then I inherited them. Sadly, they eventually died with use!
    And those glasses with flowers on them - I now have one in the bathroom as tooth paste holder. Lovely to see the vintage stuff ... sadly, I can remember much of it when it was new, let alone vintage!

  19. Absolutely gorgeous...a real treat. How lovely everything looks together.
    Seeing the geraniums reminds me that I need to buy some for one of my planters. I've grown some from plug plants but have already used all of those.
