Vintage Colour

Adapting old designs with a playful use of colour or mixing up vintage pieces with a contrast in style and colour. We’re being a little more creative with what we’ve got and seeing value in old pieces that with a little tlc can be transformed. I guess its that “Make do and Mend” mentality that we’re all feeling;  an economic necessity and enviromentally friendly solution.

Heres two pieces that were given a make over by a Swedish charity store as an example of what can be done.
