Highstreetmarket.blogspot.com. Am in love with this vignette! Dark deep indigo wall, vintage nautical oil painting, bamboo folding bar table, and an assortment of beautiful barware. I simply love the how the gold painted frame just stands attention against the rich blue, don't you?
I might even be able to pull this look off in our tiny apartment. (poor Tom, he will come home one day, and I will have painted our dining room indigo blue!)
Get the look!
Ideally, I think I want a vintage bamboo butler tray table. You know something like this one from that dangerous website, 1stdibs.com . I could spend all day drooling scrolling through their vintage furniture listings!
or a simple clear glass and a pretty white linen shade? Love this pretty Oscar lamp from Currey & Co. with its' recycled glass base and brass accents - perfect for nautical styling!
(Both of these lamps can be found on the Caron's Beach House website)
And now for a vintage nautical oil painting. There are two places that I would look first.
Cuttysark in Pioneer Square in Seattle.
Here's also just one image that I caught at the Alameda Flea Market last spring. Any vintage or thrift shop might turn up a real find too!
I have a thing about vintage glassware. It's kind of a problem.... bought these etched sailing ship glasses over a year ago at the Alameda Flea Market, and just can't bring myself to part with them. Hmmmm... maybe that means that they need to go on my new bar?
Like these classy cocktail and wine glasses from Rolf Glass with etched compass rose designs. (love!)
P.S. Yes, you can find the glasses on our site!
Have a great weekend everyone! I have promised Tom a day-trip up to Tomales Bay, or maybe even Bodega Bay for oysters. We'll probably go to Nick's, in Marshall and sit at their oyster bar, staring out over the view. Tom will get fresh oysters, I will get the crab bisque. Yum.
