Vintage Picks of the Week – Vintage Pool House Decor

Vintage Picks Of The Week

It’s time for our series Vintage Picks of the Week! We scour the internet looking for just the right piece of vintage to add to our decor, and include ideas on how we think these pieces could be used.

The Picks this week are brought to you by JayDee at ThirdShift .

If you know me, you already know how much I love Spring. But I love Summer even more! There is just nothing better than those lazy days of Summer, especially when you are hanging out at the pool! Here are some of my favorites for decorating that pool house.

Swimming Print

What I Like About It: I love vintage illustrations! I love that the illustrations of the past were drawn by hand and I appreciate the character they have. I especially love the theme of this print and the subtle colors make it even more interesting.

How I Would Use It: This vintage book page would look fabulous framed and hung on the wall in a pool house. What fun!


Vintage Life Ring

What I Like About It: I think vintage life rings have a lot of character! I especially love this life ring because my Dad was in the Navy, and the year shown on the life ring was the year my Mom was born. <3

How I Would Use It: This life ring would be awesome hung in a pool house! I realize it’s a Navy life ring, not related to a swimming pool, but I still think it would be so cool to hang this on a wall in a pool house!

Roadside Pool Sign Print

What I Like About It: I love the retro feel of this roadside pool sign. Reminds me of when I was a kid, walking to the country club every day to swim in the Summer – they had a sign that was similar. Good memories.

How I Would Use It: I think this print would be perfect for a bathroom in a pool house. The bright colors and simple lines would make it look cool in any room.

So there you have it! My three favorite vintage picks for the week! Make sure to check back to see what items are on the Pick List next week!Hand pointing right | Antique Design Illustrations

  1. Love your picks this week, JD. The fact that the illustrator took the time to add facial hair to the swimmers adds quite a flair! Ooohhh those frenchmen. 🙂
