Our eyes CRAVE green this time of year!!
Our favorite trick: Add a boxwood wreath into your decor for a pop of instant fresh.
Layer over some cool canvas art.. maybe a vintage mirror.. très chic!

Living life in shades of lovely.
We found her in a dark little joint…
surrounded with sad little trinkets that
didn’t deserve to share a shelf with her.
Poor thing – so beautiful without a single ray
of sunlight to bring her to life.
Call it a rescue mission.. call it a desperate act of love.
We call it “Patina-ing”.
GET YOUR CHARM ON
Maybe its because they’re so
warm and welcoming – so ridiculously charming.
Home is instantly more casual when you have
a few of these guys sharing your cottage.
(If you’re not into all the hair + drool +
tearful laughter.. just consider some little
vintage statues in your favorite flavor).
But we don’t care (do we)!
Sweet, sweet angel.
Maybe in this case – a tattered old oil
painting (or two) might just be best.
Wouldn’t you love an entire wall covered
in old dog paintings! Sign us up!!
Little antique plates crave worn tartan plaid,
leather-topped tables + golden glasses filled-
just a touch.. after dinner. Amazing what an
antique scene can conjure up for the soul.
Hmm.. we may need to take a spin over to
Scotland – a vintage scavenge for some
bagpipes and argyle may just be necessary.
Quite the pose (usually the case when the camera is out).
TANK is our velvet bulldog here at Patina Vie.
He shares all the same qualities as our favorite treasures:
a bit dusty, a touch scuffed and tumbled, smells good when
you take a long draw in close to his face… endearing,
and always makes your heart come alive.
(Tank faithfully joins us on all of our vintage-seeking
escapades – he’s got a great eye for the unusual)!!
Here’s to living life in shades of lovely..
with all the characters that make it even more charming.
