Life Through A Lens: My Instagram July 2016

July flew by, especially as I went on holiday for two weeks to Zante in Greece. My Instagram feed revealed only a few holiday snaps as I was without wifi for most of the fortnight which was great as I totally relaxed. Here are some of my favourite moments from July. My new blouse from […] Read more…

Vintage retro wall art picture collage as seen in Kate Beavis Vintage Home blog

Create a simple wall art collage

I have a lot of art hanging on the walls, so much so that I have had to create collages to show them all off. This for some, can be tricky; positioning them all in the right place can feel daunting. I personally do it by eye, but below I have added a short video […] Read more…

Vintage Colour Inspiration: Purple

It’s the fourth week in my vintage colour inspiration series and today I am featuring the colour purple. When I was a goth back in the late 1980s, I loved purple. I had an amazing crushed velvet midi skirt that to be honest, I wish I still had! However, now my home is anything but […] Read more…

How do you value your vintage possessions?

I have recently been asked how I value my vintage things? Well I believe that there are two ways to value them: financially and sentimentally. The clever people at Legal and General have written an interesting article on how much people value their possessions, and have asked me to consider what in my home I value and […] Read more…

Vintage orange 1960s three tiered cake tin as featured on Kate Beavis Vintage Home blog

A 1960s vintage cake tin based on a 1940s design

Last weekend I bought this three tiered vintage cake tin by Johnson Bros. I haven’t seen a tiered cake tin with a 1960s flower power design on for a long time, as usually you see the 1930s/40s version by brands such as Tala. While the earlier ones are truly fabulous, they don’t quite match my kitchen. […] Read more…

My Vintage Bedroom / Dressing Room

We recently (finally) decorated our vintage bedroom. It is the second from last room to be totally renovated in our 5 year project. Until now it has been a dumping ground for anything and everything as well as doubling up as my dressing room. To be honest, the only thing going for it was the gorgeous […] Read more…

My Vintage Bedroom

We decorated our vintage bedroom a few years ago as part of our 5 year renovation of our 1920s home. However, it never felt calm, which I really wanted for this room. I love white walls so the colour of my vintage collections simply pop out, but this didn’t seem to work here. I think […] Read more…

Succulent plants in Dialene Better Maid plant pots by Kate Beavis Vintage Home

Succulents in vintage plant pots

To me, the current trend for succulent house plants is very retro. Remember in the 1970s when we all had huge cheese plants? We had one in a large copper coal scuttle that sat all raggedy up to the ceiling for years and years. Then there were tumbling plants sitting in three-tiered macrame, reminding us […] Read more…

Vintage Spring styling ideas for your home

Spring has sprung! In between the odd snow flurries, the bulbs are out, the sun is shining and I actually want to walk the school run! So it’s time to spring clean your home (or at least give it a good tidy up) and start to think about adding some lovely springtime touches to brighten […] Read more…

1980s vintage handbags by Kate Beavis

10 reasons why I love the 1980s

I love to fill my home with vintage items, whether it be home wares, books, records or clothes. When I wrote my book and added a chapter on the 1980s, many die hard vintage fans were shocked. The 1980s? Vintage? (hey I even included the early 1990s!!) So to back up my love of all […] Read more…

My Vintage Home: A Boys Bedroom

Late last year we finally decorated our son, Herbie’s bedroom. Don’t get me wrong, he had a nice bedroom but it was done when he was 3 and now felt a little young for him. I featured it a long time ago here. We wanted to create something that he could grow older with, something that […] Read more…
