Home Tour: A Colourful Vintage

I’m inspired on a daily basis by Solid Frog and this home tour is the latest space to have my heart all a flutter. Well, with knock out geometric flooring like this in the entryway, how could it be anything short of fabulous?! The space is a delightful fusion of vintage finds and striking modern designs: reclaimed wooden cabinets sit comfortably alongside Lucite chairs and anglepoise lamps. Meanwhile, a base of milky whites allow for a smattering of colourful accent pieces, tied together by a continuation of black hues throughout. OK, why not dive in and tell me what’s catching your interiors-loving eye?

Wonderful! Love the textures, the old, the new, the treasures. Not crazy about the floor lamps tho. Too gimmicky for my taste.

Love mixing vintage with new! My coffee table is very similar to the metal one you have pictured with wheels, except with a slatted wooden top

Hi Will – gorgeous all around. Extremely fond of the weathered pieces and the pops of gold. So much to love no doubt about it.

Happy New Year to you!

Cheers ~ Deb

Happy new year Will! I love it all! The artwork, the lightfittings and that gorgeously comfy looking armchair. Thanks for the gorgeous inspiration :)

Seriously loving the office space. I hope that your year has kicked off to a great start.

Be still my heart. Will, you just killed me over here with this smorgasbord of amazing vintage moderness! Beginning with those checkered floors, black door, then paper scroll on the wall and wire paperbin, followed by the oversized lamp and paper note ceiling thingamabob. Absolutely delicious.

The oversized pieces are totally fab! Great pics as ever!

You're right- that floor is amazing. And I'm loving the beams on the ceiling. Really emphasizes how grand they are!

I am totally envious of this home, although it is a good motivator for me to clean up my home so I can re-design everything in the new year ;) Happy weekend friend! xo, danni

So beautiful. I love a neutral background, it gives you every opportunity. AND, I die for that blue cabinet. I was just introduced to your blog and so glad I was!

There's SO much to love here! The two workspace/desk areas are really inspiring me at the moment as I'm setting up my own – what great spaces to get creative in.
The coffee table is beyond fabulous and I love the snip of the bedroom too.
Overall fantastic bold use of colour that should inspire us all to experiment more!
