Chateau-Chic (with a touch of Coastal Industrial)

Here are some lovely buys I've found lately. This red cast iron cooking pot was at the op-shop for $5 last week. The enamel is slightly corroded, so it is now a fruit bowl:

This set of three white bowls cost less than $10, and has already been used every day:


Here is the fabric from Ici et La that I have chosen for my retro stools. They are at the upholsterer now:


I've also been shopping on-line from Pony Rider. The bird wall-spot on the left now joins the vintage bird print:

The black and white 'Blossoms' cushion is also from Pony Rider:


So is this 'Ribbons' design cushion:


And here is my seaside painting collection:


It's nice when you can finally say you have a 'look', even if it sounds a bit convoluted. 'Coastal Industrial Chateau-chic' - I like it!

This is my 300th Post, so I'd like to thank everyone who has been with me on this journey. I really appreciate your comments and the fact that you have hung in there, through the good times and bad. x

Beth, love your style. When I looked at your bio I was pleasantly surprised to see that you live in Oz. I am leaving the 18 June to visit your beautiful country. I will be in NSW central coast. I love that you live in a boat shed.
Smiles, Alice
