Sunday Style: Styling Ideas with Divinely Vintage

Hello! Did everyone enjoy the glorious sunshine? We went to bed on Friday evening think that we were going to wake up to a tropical thunderstorm on Saturday, but no! After a brief (torrential) shower, the sun came out and shone in all its glory all weekend.

On Thursday, we hopped over to Newark for the IACF Antiques & Collectors fair. It was our first time, but it was a fantastic time. There are some photos on Instagram, but we decided to keep our cameras away while wandering around the hundreds and hundreds of stalls. Got some fantastic buys, but that’s not what today’s post is about. On the subject of old treasures, we’ve brought you some great ideas about styling with old fabrics, from Divinely Vintage.

Divinely Vintage sources and sells curtains and fabrics from bygone eras, when florals and detailed patterns featured heavily. These vintage fabrics are like hanging pieces of artwork, and not only can they be used as curtains but as furnishing fabrics too! Sue from Divinely Vintage kindly took some time to show us how you can use these fabulous fabrics to add a rustic charm to your home. Nadine from Spinney Cottage Flowers styled these beautiful images for your enjoyment! Take a look…
