I like vintage things. I like new things. I like rustic things. Which lead to a bit of a schizophrenic look. So I decided to collect only things that fell under a loose modern-rustic umbrella and leave it at that. If it sounds a bit prescriptive and limiting, it's actually the opposite as it takes a lot of the guesswork out of decisions.
So out went the pastel teacups, girly vases and cushions and in came vintage bits and pieces in stormy colours and naturals. Everything seems to work together now and I'm free to roam markets without worry of picking up something that just looks wrong when I get it home.
Latest buy was from Rozelle markets last weekend. It's the bottom plate in the first pic, that came as a set with bowls and side plates for just $15.
There are a few rose tins and paintings around the place, but every rule needs an exception. Right?
