Vintage Bottles

Image
Oh I do love old bottles.  You?
I've got them scattered throughout the home in all different shapes, colours & sizes. They look particularly beautiful sitting on a window sill with the sunlight shining through.  Here are some recent photos taken of the bottles available on our website with some ideas on how you can display them. Similar to this photo, you could use a lovely little display shelf not only to showcase old bottles but also shells, old perfume bottle, fishing net, glass insulator and glass float. This would be my most favourite photo. Gorgeous old purple & blue bottles alongside a gorgeous piece of blue coral that sits on a lovely old French trivet. Beautiful isn't it?  Place inside coffee table trays.
So many gorgeous colours. A large old amber coloured bottle filled with palm leaves would make a beautiful vase. Old imperial bottles that once held whisky. These also make perfect vases. A coastal vintage style home in my mind isn't complete without a lovel…

Coastal Home - Tara Dennis

Image
In the December 2014 issue of the Australian Home Beautiful Magazine, the home of Channel 7, Better Homes & Garden's Tara Dennis was showcased.  It really captured my attention for it beautiful coastal style & lots of coastal vintage goodness. Tara's home is new, built by her husband Martyn and decorated by Tara. Inspiration was taken from the nearby river shacks and oyster farms creating a home that blends seamlessly into the rugged environment. Tara states that she wanted it to feel like an older style home, like an old weekender. They used recycled materials and timber to create charm and authenticity. Tara's says she doesn't do modern very well. She likes second-hand furniture, things with character and that have a story. I have pointed out a few of those pieces throughout this post that are of Coastal Vintage style.  Some of these may inspire you or give you ideas to decorate with something similar in your home. In this photo, the ottoman behind Tara is a o…

Coastal Vintage Warehouse - opening

Image
It's been a month since I opened the warehouse. I don't know where that time as gone. However, I've thoroughly enjoyed setting up the space and welcoming visitors. It has been so lovely to meet so many people from Instagram and Facebook. I feel like I knew so many of you before meeting you. Thank you to all of you that have popped by and extra thanks to @anoshkafish for bringing along a few friends and a bottle of bubbly to celebrate!  Here are some snippets of the warehouse over the past few weeks. It is ever changing as products come and go including my lovely old boat. It has been replaced with another gorgeous boat. The old boat has temporarily gone up against the wall and it is perfect for storing all the oars. This is where it will stay until it is sold.  (if interested email hello@coastalvintage.com.au) And here is the new boat - there is a beautiful story behind how this all came about.  However, I will blog about that another time. :)  Lots of life preservers from ships …
