Decorating with Vintage Florals

Posted by Rebecca Bullock on

In the March edition of Ideal Home Magazine, there featured a great article on how to incorporate mixed vintage florals into home decor. This is a look that I simply love, and that I have in my own home. The hallway, stairs and landing areas are full of mirrors, various floral paintings and prints, vintage cake plates and more. Mixed together, they make a stunning display.

I especially love the collection of embroideries, oil paintings and prints shown in the top right - these are the types of art that we get in stock whenever we can! Shop the look here!

Note also the simple yet effective arrangements of vintage floral postcards shown in the bottom right - these can be easily picked up from antiques fairs or online; alternatively, print your own on quality paper from The Graphics Fairy. Just look at some of the beautiful images they have available for personal use!

Using vintage fabric is also a great way to add the floral vibe to your decor. Although it is increasingly hard to come by, it is still possible to find vintage fabric in excellent condition. See our linens and haberdashery section on our website for more ideas.

This collage of images from Pinterest shows some of the stunning ways that vintage tablecloths, curtains and pieces of fabric can be used, upcycled or repurposed to make cushions, bags or bunting. Pieces of vintage fabric can even be framed to make wall art, as seen above.
