At Home with Vintage


Summer Home Decor

Summer Sills with Beach Treasures.

Your vintage decor can be as casual yet splendid as the carefree summer season. Vintage kitchen goods and gadgets matched with daisies and herbs. Window sills with beach finds and baubles. Bedroom bureaus a stage for  well-worn baskets and small bottles. A verdant lawn ready for badminton play, and those repainted, old metal lawn chairs. This is summer home decor. Where vintage shows its light and airy side. Where bright hues and cool colors bring the outside in.

Fun Funnels. Matched with Garden Greens.

The Vintage Kitchen

The place to eat, drink, and laugh about summer fun: the vintage kitchen. Bring in the summer garden flowers, and the ones that adorn favorite, old kitchen pieces. Set them about with fresh veggies for a design that lets you see the summer.

Sleeping In Summer

Baskets on the Bureau
The summer scarf for the dresser.
The summer bedroom displays aged baskets and pastel glass bottles. These subtle but defining dresser centerpieces keep the room cool and calm for pondering summer memories. Enjoy the fabrics of a bright flowered purse, your dresser scarf, and gauze blouses. They all remind you that it is summertime, and life should be easy. 
After all, it is the season of carefree and casual decor.


 The Summer Yard

Summer Seating Vintage Style
The Easy Life in Summer.
In your lawn, you enjoy the old, oversized metal chairs and tables. You found a 1960s badminton set, and everyone loves to play. A few extra rackets hang in the den.  Admired walkways with vintage planters, some with summer perennials, and some with old toys for summer outside play, like roller skates and baseball mitts. Make a toast to summer while drinking from vintage glassware, and take in the seasons glow and warmth. You are surrounded by summer, and the best of summer home decor. To find
the best in vintage for all home decor, come to the shops with the elite

I really agree with the previous comment from wretchedshekels. It does remind me of yesteryears. Life seemed a little simpler then. Of course we were children and it would be simpler. Thank you for all the display ideas. We have some old farm implements and you've given me some ideas on how to showcase them - outside of course!

Great items!! Loved summers as a kid...woke up, ate breakfast, rushed out to join the neighborhood kids to play all day (building forts in the woods, kick ball tournaments, and digging for fossils), then begrudgingly home when the sun was setting.

thank you for featuring my nut choppers!
The aluminum drink coolers are fantastic...I had a set that the cork lining was in tatters. Made some quick replacements with a thin sheet of gasket cork found at the auto store.
