Get Simone's Look!!


I've had such a lovely response to my House Tour post from yesterday. Thank you everyone who either left me a comment here at ABT or emailed me directly. It was so lovely to hear from you. The obvious thing we all loved in Simone & Richard's house was the framed vintage swimsuits. What a fantastic idea for a beach house. Simone purchased all of these swimsuits on Ebay so keep your eyes peeled!!

In response to yesterday's post I thought it would be fun to put together a few things currently available on Ebay which would be similar things Simone would have purchased when decorating her house. Enjoy my selections and take a leaf from Simone's book - don't pay too much for anything vintage as there will always be something else just around the corner!!

My mother's house used to be full of milk glass. It went out of style many years ago so she now has boxes and boxes full of it. I never appreciated it as a kid but now will love inheriting some of it one day.

Wow, Anna. I do the very same thing on my little blog that I write for myself. YOUR blog inspired me to start looking for ITEMS ON EBAY to try and duplicate the "beautiful look" that you have in your home, beach house and store, Black + Spiro. I truly love your "look" and your site ALWAYS inspires me to look a bite more. Thank you for bringing a smile to my face EACH TIME I read your blog.

That is amazing. . .I guess I don't have the Ebay touch, but might try it. I REALLY want the cane chairs and settee--unfortunately, I live in Texas and it would take QUITE a drive/plane ride/boat trip to come and pick it up.

What beautiful finds.
