Vintage vavavoom

You can never go wrong with a bit of vintage to add character to your home and give the space a warming sense of nostalgia – even the most modern of places can benefit from the odd classic fixture to give it personality. If trawling through car boot sales and vintage markets isn’t your bag, there are routes to finding vintage gems online too. Here are a few of our favourite ACHICA vintage finds this week. . .

[Above] How cool, serene and suitably snoozy does this Brooklyn bedding from Boutique Linen look? It’s 100% cotton with a 300 thread count and feels seriously sumptuous. The Boutique Linen promotion at ACHICA starts at 7am Sunday 5th February and ends at 7am Wednesday 8th February.

Using original, vintage playing cards and 1920’s parlour game pieces, these frames from Vintage Playing Cards strike just the right balance between quirky and cool. We’ve got our eye on I Get A Kick Out Of You and Some Like It Hot. The Vintage Playing Cards promotion at ACHICA starts at 7am Friday 3rd February and ends at 7am Monday 6th February.

Who would have thought old Routemaster signs could have such charm? But they do, tonnes of it. These hand-embroidered cushions from Barbara Coupe are on promotion at ACHICA from 7am Friday 3rd February until 7am Monday 6th February.

This silver plated 1940′s Sheffield four-piece tea set from Vintage Vanity (at ACHICA from 7am Friday 3rd February until 7am Monday 6th February) features ‘gadrooned’ edging with acanthus leaves and classical decoration with wooden finials and handles. Pass the biccies please.

Short of worktop space in your kitchen? Eddingtons Bucklebury Trolley from Creative Kitchen (at ACHICA until Sat 4 Feb 2012) is a compact design to give you extra food preparation, storage and serving space and nothing says vintage chic more than bespoke kitchenware. The block also features a knife block, two shelves, a large pull-out shelf/chopping board, utility drawer, towel rack, and space for four bottles of wine – that’s four bottles we tell thee – just enough to get you through the weekend…
