Do you love Antiques, and Country, & Rustic...Then follow Fifi O'Neill. She mixes all of these styles in an effortless manner. For those of us who are afraid to follow our Style because it's not in vogue at the moment, maybe it's too shabby, or too ....or too...
Watch the video below....!
Fresh flowers are a beautiful addition to any room in your Home...these are especially beautiful as they were just picked from the Garden - French Lilacs, Iris, and Daylilies. What are you planning to grow in your Garden this Summer in your Garden?
Rustic style over the years has seen Roosters, Pigs, Rabbits and other creatures come and go as decor items. Here at The Camellia we have various #Upholstery weight fabrics for your DIY projects, such as recovering the seats of vintage dining-room chairs. Make sure you save the old fabric you take off to use as a pattern to cut your new fabric.
Here is the Before photo of these antique solid wood chairs which we picked up from a second-hand store.
Here is the same chair painted with Cottage Paint - colour evening sky. What a difference!
A neutral Grey Linen on the seat completes the restoration. We used Anchor grey Cottage Paint on the drop-leaf table.
This Turquoise Cottage Paint just yells out Coastal and Water and Lake.
Look around you...anything can be repurposed, this paddle idea for a headboard would be so great in a Camp by the Lake. What have you got laying around that can be repurposed? Head to our store The Camellia for #Cottage/chalkyPaint to redo your old furniture pieces.
Get your Inspiration from Nature...like this beautiful sea turtle...and we do have a lovely colour in Cottage paint called Sea Turtle.
Here is a sign we are working on - using Cottage Paint colours : Beach letters done in NAPLES BLUE, Coral painted in DRIFTWOOD, Mermaid painted in SEA TURTLE, and the background is COTTAGE WHITE. If you are decorating in a Coastal theme, you cannot go wrong if you include these colours in your decor.
