vintage furniture

Enjoy this beautiful house tour, that’s brimming with effortless charity shop style.

I stumbled across the home of printmaker Lesley Greening Lassoff the other day when I was browsing the internet, and fell in love with its effortless charity shop style.

Lesley has furnished her home mainly with charity shop, eBay and car boot finds.  This decision was partly borne out of necessity as Lesley says “When I was furnishing the house I didn’t have much money, but it was an enjoyable challenge“. However, it’s clear that it was also partly as a stand against consumerism as she adds “I don’t like buying new, and I enjoy having a rummage or a forage in charity shops“.

Lesley’s home has come together beautifully, and I love the relaxed and cosy feel of her house. Take a look!

The Living Room

Doesn’t the living room make you want to pour yourself a steaming cup of tea and curl up in the armchair with a good book?  Just me?!

Thanks to Lesley I’ve now added Parker Knoll armchairs to my charity shop watch list!

The Kitchen

The kitchen is a vintage lover’s treat too. String shelves, Hornsea pottery, and chequerboard floor tiles ahoy! I love this quirky look!

The Bedroom

Lesley’s bedroom continues with the vintage furniture vibe. It can be easy to get vintage wrong, but Lesley has managed to reach a balance where the furniture doesn’t feel loud or overpowering:
