Inspirations for my retro living room – vases & flowers

After putting up my retro pattern wallpaper, I thought I had nearly completed my retro 60s/70s-inspired living room, but I don’t think I’ll ever really be finished, especially when there are so many vintage bargains to be found in the charity shops and at car boot sales. This week I was lucky enough to find these lovely (or horrid, depending on your viewpoint) vases. It was perfect timing, because my friend had just bought me some tulips and daffodils as a thank you for making her a fancy dress costume and I only had a cocktail jug to put them in.

So I’ve been keeping an eye out for something suitable to display my Spring flowers in and was so happy when I spotted this rust-brown coloured glass vase (which matches the tumblers I use for tealights) and a brown patterned ceramic pot by Hornsea. I thought it might be a flour tub or biscuit barrel but it didn’t have a lid with it, so I bought it for a bargain price and I’ll use it as a vase instead. Or maybe it is supposed to be a vase or plant pot, I have no idea about this kind of thing, so if you know anything more about it please get in touch and leave me a comment below – that would be great! 

Please have a look at my other blog posts about my project to give my living room a retro makeover:
