Vintage Bahamas Tablescape

Have you heard of One Kings Lane?  It's an online sales website based in the USA, much like our very own Australian based Temple & Webster and Dalani Home & Living.  Discounted prices on designer furniture, decor, art & lifestyle products. One Kings Lane also has a vintage section which I lovvveee!! 

Today I made my first purchase from One Kings Lane after seeing these items and dreaming of a bahamas inspired tablescape! (Note - They don't ship to Australia as yet, but you could try a mail forwarding service if you don't have any US contacts! Luckily my sister now lives in NYC)

Bamboo-Inspired 20-Piece Set
20 Piece bamboo cutlery set.  May paint the handles... or leave vintage green...

Set of 4 Rattan Placemats, Mocha
4 piece round rattan placemats

Inspired by both my favourite banana leaf vintage wallpaper, and a shoot I worked on for Domayne with Shannon Fricke a couple of weeks ago which was themed Vintage Bahamas.

I plan on creating a table setting by mixing these pieces with some of my personal prop collection including quirky nature plates I bought in NY last year from Anthropologie, vintage gold napkin holders, cane furniture & vintage wooden boxes from an online garage sale...... with lots of huge green leaves, palms and exotic summer fruit.
