Saturday’s “Designing with Vintage” with Gail Smith-Peterson
Romantic style...lounging in the garden house
When I think of romantic style, it’s more of a feeling to me. This vintage garden house is a favorite place to be in the afternoon. The natural light coming in from the west is beautiful, it washes the white weathered wood in a warm glow.
Roses are symbolic for romance. The pale pink petals are delicately ruffled. These are from my garden.
I love these hearts just hanging in a cluster layered together, they might hint ...I’m falling for you.
Sentiments of a heart shaped candle in the palest pink, returns each year to be lit for only a short while every Valentines.
My favorite vintage latte bowl with two biscotti's to share, layered beneath with pretty squares of pink floral fabric samples.
The scent of almond biscotti's dipped with chocolate paired with an antique garden rose is like perfume!
This vintage European campaign bed is white and weathered to perfection! My newest vintage find. Stuffing a feather bed in a pale pink vintage European duvet is lounging simple lounging 101!
I hope you enjoyed these simple design tips for creating romantic style. Have a romantic valentines weekend...
My design tip: Use your senses to create a romantic space.
