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

    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.

    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!

  • Reply rubyrhino January 7, 2011 at 7:42 pm

    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!
