shades of aqua at the beach

It’s no secret that I love the vintage vibe aqua gives off in a beach house.  There is just something so throwback and coastal about the cool blue color.  Plus it is calming which is exactly how you should feel at the beach.  Just look at these inspiring bedrooms featuring aqua found on pinterest


Be still my beating heart.  Be still.

So I’ve got a new-to-us aqua addition in our little beach bungalow.  Of the vintage variety of course. Just how it should be.  I love chenille blankets and was thrilled to find this one with tons of fringe!

It makes the perfect messy throw in our master bedroom which is done in seaglass and driftwood.  I have so many favorites in this room but this blanket is on the top of the list right now.  Smitten!

Guess what!  It’s the beginning of the week so that means it’s time to show ya my vintage finds from last week.  There’s a few gems in the mix for your viewing pleasure.

I’ve got a thing for hand embroidered little tea towels. 

What can I say?

These adorable glass bottles will be a nice addition to our collection in the beach house bedroom.  Just add shells for instant gratification.

More bottles!  Definitely of the vintage variety.  These are old beer bottles embossed with the brewery and local origin – Norristown & Philadelphia.

Another day.  Another orchard basket.  This one is just asking for a poinsettia in it at Christmas.

It is always a good day when a beautiful antique ironstone dish surfaces for just a few bucks.

We got a new chandelier!  It’s really not vintage but I’ve been on the hunt for a simple farmhouse style iron one just like this.  That means we can take down the brass beast of a chandy that came with the house.  Thank goodness.  The new one also won’t be sporting the little lamp shades when it moves into the dining room.

The chair in the background of all of the pictures is solid oak and, although hard to tell, butter cream yellow.  I originally thought I’d repaint it but it is distressed in just the right places already.  A little soap and gloss will have it glowing.

Did you find any vintage treasures this week?
