Decorating Ideas: Vintage Junkie House Tour

Vintage Junkie: House Tour

I knew as soon as I spotted this house on Interior Junkie, I’d have to re-blog.

This house is light on modern features, heavy on classic vintage pieces and alive with personality plus+++. The light, lofty rooms are filled with comfortable things, everywhere. Deep red velvet curtains, a drinks trolley, turntable plus stacked record collection, taxidermy, gilt mirrors, peacock feathers and a much-loved framed Guadalupe (every house, in my humble opinion, should have one).

Owner, Des Ellis, has created an interior that is so sympathetic to her 126-year-old house, using layers of antique, vintage, old, found and re-purposed items. “If you can’t make it yourself, you can find it second-hand.” says Des. Hear! Hear!
