Vintage Dressers for the Kitchen

A collection of vintage dresses makes up this boho chic, country, cottage kitchen in Lithgow, Australia.

A perfectly quaint way to display your collection of vintage cups, plates and other decorative arts. Pure charm in bargain shop finds that create that nostalgic sense of grandma’s house from yester year.

This style can be re created on a small budget, all it takes is time and a passion for hunting down those unique pieces. I love checking out my local markets and thrift shops because it is here that you can find those rare treasures that can create a home like this!

Enchanted Cottage

I just fell in love with this enchanted, rustic country cottage created by textile artist Robin Brown  who calls the retreat “A Victorian fairy tale“, featured in Country Living.

Gorgeous bedroom with layers of beautiful fabrics and lace.

The working refrigerator was a “horrible brown” when Robin nabbed it for $30 at a yard sale. Then how did it turn shell pink? Her solution for old appliances: “Take it to an automotive painter!” But that’s as far as any refinishing went.

Nautical Cottage Kitchen

Designer Gary McBournie created a subtle nautical theme without going overboard in this fisherman’s cottage. Kitchen cabinetry was made by Nantucket furniture maker Carter Mitchell. The open grate design allows for ventilation and the concealment of appliances. Simple plank flooring is painted Benjamin Moore’s Deep Ocean and spattered in red, white, and blue. Sconces are brass marine fixtures.

This kitchen has a great feel to it. I can image living in old, time worn house by the beach, sipping my tea in this kitchen. I have a real weakness for exposed rafters.
