24 Oct Decorating Ideas: Go Wild
Forbidden Forests and Vintage Nesting
Ahhhhh….it’s Spring time in Australia and I’m having a love affair with all things wild and free.
From vintage interiors featuring flocks of Chinoiserie birds and flowers to this season’s biggest fashion trends of brocade, ethereal dresses, ruffles, leopard print, velvet and chiffon. All looks that you can create by shopping vintage. And it’s green!
By shopping vintage, you’ll not only be an environmental warrior, you’ll also get to satisfy your cravings for this season’s interior design trends and fashion looks – at a fraction of the cost…Organic food shopping, anyone?
Plus you’ll quickly discover the high-quality of vintage products. From a beautiful handcrafted piece of furniture (not a chipboard splinter in sight) to the finest fabrics; that in most cases are no longer manufactured. Unless you’ve had a personalised mannequin of your exact body shape made by a Couture House such as Chanel in Paris or Ralph & Russo in London (I need one of those…).
My below moodboard goes from dark and glamourous to the pretty and romantic. Vintage decor and vintage-inspired dresses come alive with shades of green, enchanted forest settings and nomad motifs.
So spend some time getting-in-touch with nature and be free! Sarah x
