Design Vintage interiors destination Chichester

February 5, 2017

It was a perfect spring afternoon when I first discovered Design Vintage Chichester.

My friend, Ali, and I had just dropped our older boys off at Kingly Vale, near Chichester, for a hike. ‘There’s a really lovely place nearby to get a cup of tea and a cake,’ said Ali. ‘ It’s just the sort of place you love. There are vintage and Scandi bits. Shall I take you?’ There was never really any question about it. Minutes later we were there and I was in heaven. It is exactly the sort of place I love to discover so I thought I’d share it with you!

Design Vintage Chichester is the brainchild of interior designer Lisa Brass, who has a shop in Brighton and has recently opened this second venture near Chichester. A sizeable barn full of well-curated interiors accessories as well as one-off vintage finds, this is such a relaxing place to happily while away an afternoon.

Tea and cake

We browsed the collection, inspired by the use of concrete effect wallpaper and confident use of very dark grey paint which made other colours really pop. I was particularly taken with some beautiful vintage linen cushions with blue stripe and oversized repurposed wicker basket light above the cafe counter. I’d been promised tea and cake, so we did that too.

The cinnamon cake was homemade and delicious, washed down with Earl Grey tea made in an enamel blue and white teapot. It’s details like this that I love. If you’re in the area, make the effort to pop in. The parking’s ample and free and there are beautiful downland walks nearby so you could actually make a day of it.

    This looks so nice! Love the colour of the walls. I always think green foliage looks amazing against this colour.

      Thanks Helen and glad you liked the post. I know what you mean – dark grey really makes botanical greens sing doesn’t it? Keep meaning to ask exactly which grey they used here…
