The hard thing when you love all things vintage is finding a style that is really you. I love a little bit of every era and this can be quite a design challenge in a small house. In my lounge room I pretty much have a mid century vibe and in here I can go crazy with my love for German Pottery particularly those made by company Scheurich - Keramik. They were very prolific producing an amazing amount of stuff including lamps and so on and the great thing is they are really economical and interesting pieces. Small vases retail for around $16 and large pots and vases around the $100 depending on rarity, colour etc. I naturally don't keep all I come across and prefer the reds, oranges and brown colours. Thanks to the lovely Anita at Fun and VJs I now fondly call them my "ugly vases". The term "ugly", devised by Anita, is used to describe all the fun, totally non girly but absolutely wonderful, mid century goodies that are so ugly they are fabulous. Every home needs a bit of UGLY I say.
