Last weekend I had a lovely weekend which consisted of pottering around in the sunshine and visiting some local vintage shop that are near. My find of the weekend has got to be this oil painted bouquet, which proudly sits above the sink in the kitchen. It may not be a window view, but it’s just as beautiful…
What is there not to like about a wall adorned with art, hung in a ‘higgledy-piggledy’ manner? Whether there is a theme to the collection of works, or just an array of mediums and influences, I think that this way of displaying art is not only visually pleasing but can be a constant work in progress, build more and more over time from vintage market and charity shops finds.
I’m like a magpie when it comes to vintage detailing and shiny things, and these two images feed my addiction visually. The collection of tarnished silver cutlery and trays, with their engraved shapes reflecting in the light is simply stunning. I’d definitely like to welcome all of these items into my kitchen.
Plates come in all shapes and sizes with beautiful patterns and detailing and can be collected from charity shops or flea markets inexpensively.
Why not display their beauty on your wall rather than stack them away in your cupboard? They’re perfect as a feature wall in a kitchen or a lounge and can be displayed randomly or in a sequence…the wall is your oyster!
