Red and Pink Vintage Fabric Color Combo

Today, as a follow-up to the Pink and Orange post, I'm showing some of my vintage fabrics in one of my favorite color combos...Red and PINK.
Naturally with these colors, we're bound to see a lot of florals...and I have plenty of them! Let's start there with some large bouquets and columns of roses and hollyhocks.
The smaller prints are cute, too.
Next, on top we have a gorgeous 1930-40's fabric, predominantly red with pink roses. And on the bottom, a fun mod floral from a vintage 60's bedspread. You might recognize this one from the living room makeover photos. This next group shows the last of the florals along with a cute geometric print and two fruit related designs.
A funky midcentury modern barkcloth depicting trees and buildings is perfect in this red/pink colorway!
And now we come to the kitchen linens and prints. The first two are pairs of kitchen curtains from my grandma's house. They look homemade, but never used (yep, that was just like gram).


Check out the adorable diamond oven mit in the bottom fabric. :)
And these are kitchen towels. Perfect for a retro vintage-themed kitchen.
Well, I think that just about does it for the RED and PINK tour. Some of these are available on the website (click on the pics) or will be by the end of the weekend.

Oops, I just found one more. Here's a cute little border print...


Ok, now I think that's it. LOL Have a great weekend, everyone!

Aren't vintage fabrics so special. I love barkcloth but it is impossible to find around where I am and I refuse to buy it online. Your collection is really special. Cherrie

These are great! You have such a knack for fabrics and knowing what is good. Of course I love them because of so much PINK!

Katherine said...

Wow. What a treasure trove of vintage beauty! I adore this colour combo. It's all so lovely.

Lizzie said...

Lovely. So why is it that I grew yp with the idea that one should not wear pink and red together?

Niesz Vintage Home said...

Thanks everyone!

Lizzy, I remember thinking the same thing.
Maybe it was a primary color vs. pastel color thing?
Anyway, the more I saw this combo in vintage, the more I fell in love with it. :-)
