Pretty Pastels


Here are some pretty pastels for one of the bedrooms. The Astor radio I loved instantly! It doesn’t work but that didn’t deter me. It was the lovely buttery yellow that caught my attention, so therefore its main purpose is to be pretty. I don’t know anything about old radios or their value. I did try to source some information, but I couldn’t find another radio that matched mine. I don’t really care about the value….I was just curious.

The following three glasses were also purchased for their loveliness and because they look like half open flowers. They are purely for decoration and look so pretty with radio. WARNING! Super Girly room in progress! 😉 It will have soft greens, yellows, pinks and charcoal. I’ll also be attempting my own DIY headboard. Wish me luck!

    Mmmm. These are deliciously retro!! That radio!! It’s so perfect with the green table. And I love those cups. Lovely for jewelry. Or just looking at. The colors are beautiful!!

    Are you upholstering a headboard or painting it??

      They are deliciously retro! I love them. I’m going to upholster the bed head using some Amy Butler fabric. I’ve never done it before, but I found an excellent tutorial that I think I can manage….fingers crossed.

      I’d hoped someone might know something about it. I’m not sure of it’s make and it’s in Millthorpe at the moment, so I can’t check. I’m heading there over the weekend, so I’ll find out and get back to you. Thanks.

      Sorry, no joy. I couldn’t find any markings on it except for astor. So i’m still clueless.

      I really like the radio too. I’m in love with yellow at the moment. So bright and cheery. Thanks for visiting.
