|Part of my cat collection, i did find all these myself :)|
|A what-not and our arch lamp (which isn't vintage, but has a vintage look to it and its a very iconic piece)|
|Teak and brass star burst clock|
|bloody giant TV ruins the whole look|
|Atomic coat rack, these were originally in Celia's vintage old shop|
|beautiful tall glass catches the light and adds a splash of colour|
|(what we think are) Beswick swallows|
|My cabinet full of treasure|
The original 1950s/60s Ercol three piece was a complete steal from Ebay. If you were to buy this newly upholstered in a trendy vintage boutique in London, you would be looking to pay thousands. We got the whole set for under £100. We are hoping to re-upholster it at some point. But for some reason with the new bright light carpet, it has made the sofa look fresher too. So at the moment we are in no rush. I am starting to quite like it.

The other rooms in my house are also vintage, the dining room looks more like an antiques shop, our original 60s Danish teak table is stacked high with vintage tea sets ready to go on sale, our original Nathan teak side board has mis-matched lamps and large vases on it. We have a 1950s bar, but it needs a bit of restoration as it has water damage. Our bedroom has furniture form the 40s to 60s. I love my 40s dressing table. But the whole look is ruined by in ikea bed. But as i said previously, having a vintage house takes time, there isn't a big vintage ikea that's a one stop shop. (well there is vintage emporiums like Alfie's in London but you pay for it!)
