Vintage Chic










This atmospheric French home is almost completely furnished with industrial and vintage pieces — often used and/or displayed in unexpected and creative ways, such as the collection of children's chairs on the bathroom walls, or the old ladder holding a tray of soap and loofahs on the bathtub. The gentle tones used throughout allow the eye to focus on the time worn patina of the home — it's all about texture here, rather than colour. Definitely a quiet and gentle place to live. More here from House to Home.

Using industrial vintage is a look that is very popular in Melbourne too ~ but ours is more gritty ~ not so pretty as this. So it is interesting to see how a local flavour comes through in a similar design ethos.

I have to agree ~ it is a quiet and gentle place. Beautifully said.

Some really stunning images and some great ideas. I particularly love the large mirror on the bare wall in the bathroom. Fantastic!
