Vintage Shutter Love



The Dior home has a love

for vintage shutters...




















I love to hang them against burlap...




I use them on top of dressers & tables











I love to use them in displays




add them to a bookcase...


 I love using natural elements...










Linking up to the lovely


Much love to all of you
XOXO

Kate, I always Love the Organic and Inviting look of all of your Styling... in the Home and in your Shop! Architectural Salvage of all types has always been a weakness of mine too.

I grew up in a French built home in Viet Nam. We had shutters on every window that we closed at night. A fun memory.

Fondly,

Vintage shutters add great architectural interest. You always display them so well, creating beautiful back drops for your dreamy organic displays and vignettes.

love old shutters! i have a tall set sitting in my garage forever now! i found them in trash a block over from our house. i feel inspired to use them now!

on another note, where did you get the quatrefoil pillows on your bed? I am searching frantically for a few yards of that fabric. i really want it in grey and white, but no luck. tan and white would work. if you don't mind letting me know if you have a source, i would appreciate it!!

Such beautiful pictures, Kate.
Love your gorgeous, peaceful style. :)
I am also a shutter fanatic! I have them on my living room windows ~ they're from an old farmhouse circa 1860's and quite large to fit these giant, old windows.
You'll see them soon enough.... :) :)
Hope you have a beautiful weekend, my friend. xoxo

Do you sell any of the old/vintage shutter hinges? I'm looking for one that is 1 1/4" high for my Hoosier cupboard. One broke & I want to keep it as close to original as possible. I can send pic if you like...
Thanks in advance for your speedy response!
