Vintage Home Sheffield
I'm so lucky to have such great shopping on our doorstep, I'm never short of inspiration.
One shop in particular always catches my eye when I drive past - Vintage Home in Sheffield. Apparently it's become abit of a talking point locally too - with a dramatic mirror in the current window being a talking point at the local school gates!
Chris and Julie who own the shop have a brilliant eye for dressing the window with an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, striking artwork, and new nick-nacks that I can always see fitting into our house. The vintage furniture is well chosen and beautifully restored or updated with gorgeous Farrow and Ball colours.
Julie manages to cleverly mix both quirky and traditional English designers like Jan Constantine, and Fairmont and Main Pottery from West Yorkshire, with pretty vintage inspired Danish designers like Lisbeth Dahl.
This is one of my pick of the 'best little independents' - over the next few months I'll be championing more - drop me a message if you have any suggestions of local independent shops that inspire and enhance your neighbourhood.
