As visitors to the shop can testify, we love to make a display at Alcove!
We are lucky though because It's not difficult to come up with something interesting when we have such a good choice of vintage and new items to choose from. We've always like mixing vintage and new interior items , we don't believe that people only have new or old things in their homes, they have a mixture, and we like to reflect that at Alcove.
if we like the look of something then we will put it in the shop for your perusal !
its amazing how a selection of seemingly random items can look really great together in a display. If you love it then go for it we say!
Just a few simple little vintage bottles can look stunning when they're grouped together in a collection displaying the same flowers or foliage.
I adore vintage glass bottles, they're my 'thing' and although I have loads at home, if I spot an unusual one in an antique shops or market I just have to have it! I also don't like to pass them on which is why they're rarely for sale at Alcove!
They're stunning in summer filled with little sweet peas or roses from the garden, and you can change the flowers through the seasons, or even use dried Lavender sprigs for a thrifty bit of fragrance at home.
Of course, making a pleasing display is a lot easier when the items that you are displaying are absolutely gorgeous, like our new Burleigh range !
We placed one of our Roo Abrook vintage book page prints (£12) onto the display , framed in one of our freestanding glass frames (£22.95).
Overall, when it comes to making a display, we think that if you like it then just go for it. We'd always prefer an eclectic display that reflects your own taste over a minimalist , understated home anyday, but we like to be different!
