House & Garden Feature

We've had a few of our lovely old wares featured in the latest Australian House & Garden magazine. 
Take a look at these dreamy coastal style photos. It all looks simply beautiful.
 Styling by talented Kayla Gex. 
We made the front cover! :) with one of our old fishing nets. 
It was also featured on this page alongside photographer and product designer Kara Rosenlund's beautiful handmade wooden spoons. Kara was one of my greatest inspirations for starting Coastal Vintage. It was after meeting her at the New Farm markets 4-years ago where I found her selling old wares out of her restored Bondwood Caravan 'Frankie' that I realised that it wasn't only coastal style wares I wanted to sell, it was coastal vintage wares. 
Selling old wares is in the blood from my Dad's side of the family in the UK. It started with my beautiful Nanna who was an antique dealer and so was my late Uncle, and then his two sons also bought and sold antiques.
Our custom designed Duck egg stripe oars certainly strike a pose lending on the wall don't they and isn't that old pond yacht just divine?
 Have you ever thought about hanging an old ship's light up on the wall? Doesn't ours look fabulous here?
One of our old paddles blends in perfectly here alongside one of Kara's beautiful photographs. All the items on this gallery wall, both old and new seem to fit in together don't they?

What photo inspires you?

Thanks House & Garden,

until next time, 

lover of the sea and all things coastal vintage,
