I love a few vintages pieces around the house to add some character and charm to a place. If it tells a story or has a sense of history then even better! If everything is brand new and perfectly matched, a house can lack soul. Simply by adding a few antiques or some quirky vintage finds a home can suddenly come to life. I've seen some amazing pieces at markets, antique shops and garage sales over the years including old fashioned wooden school desks, old singer sewing machines (like my grandma used to have) and one of my favourite finds are vintage calico dress mannequins like the ones above.
