Vintage style home design


 
Advice,Business,Consumer
Vintage style home design has become increasingly popular in recent years. Your personal vintage style preferences can be easily expressed with the use of some wonderful decorative vintage touches and accessories can be used to really complete the look. Many people turn their interest to vintage style, as it offers the opportunity to be both individual and unique. This article will briefly tell you about how to apply vintage style using vintage furniture to become a vintage style superstar! So, stay tuned.

Current trends are not just about what's going on with mainstream interior design styles. Amongst some of the most popular home design styles, vintage is often considered to be the most unique as well as being timeless and everlasting. Unlike some modern styles, the vintage look is often eclectic and can work in many different types of home from the very contemporary interior with clean lines to more period homes with lots of character features.

Some of the best items of vintage furniture can be given a new lease of life by simply up-cycling or re-vamping in order to create a new look and inject some much needed love into what might have been just an old and forgotten piece. It is not only about finding an antique piece of furniture to achieve the vintage perfection, mixing old and new can also often be the right approach. You can combine your new home wares with for example some vintage industrial furniture to make your home decoration compelling and to really achieve that New York loft style look!

To get that much sought after shabby chic vintage style look, it often requires the work of re-animating old furniture, which can also be a very fun & satisfying thing to do. For instance, you may want to revive certain old items from your grand parents and add them to your bedroom. Or perhaps, you would look for that much-desired special piece of vintage bedroom furniture, such as a dramatic antique 4-poster bed or a lovely whitewashed French style dressing table purchased from an online antique store.

You may use your own creativity and design flair to create your own vintage masterpiece! Some recommended elements to help with your creation would be to personalise the piece based on your particular taste, such as adding some original vintage wallpaper to the top surface of a desk or coffee table, underneath a sheet of glass, or repainting a vintage sideboard of display cabinet with one of the adorable paint colour choices from Farrow & Ball, such as 'Elephants Breath' or 'Estate Eggshell'. Once your work of art is complete is can then be polished off by the addition of some delicate decorative accessories, such as some antique silver or perhaps an oversized vintage vase with an arrangement of vintage flowers or some delicate porcelain antique ornaments, some of which you may have collected throughout your life.

An industrial look is one of the most unique and on trend styles. A mix of vintage industrial furniture items such as a chunky wood dining table with different coloured painted hairpin legs or a pallet coffee table against a plain white wall will bring such a wow factor into your home and inject a piece of history as well as your personality at the same time. Often these items can be made by finding reclaimed materials or up-cycling older items of furniture, which gives the piece much character, and charm that is hard to find in a modern piece.

Vintage style possibilities are almost endless. You can create such a cosy home decor by simply adding some subtle touches. Vintage furniture can be used to emphasise your home decoration without costing the earth and it is also very eco friendly! Besides which, you can be satisfied knowing that you are following your own passions and style and there will be no other home that will look the same as yours.

Not any old stuff can be called vintage. There are some qualifications in order to give an item the deserving 'vintage' name. Generally speaking, those that are between 30 and 100 years old can be considered as vintage, and it should have some reference to the era in which it was made. This can be from simple art deco desk to a 1950's dining set. It all depends on your choice of focus. Anything more than 100 years old is considered Antique!

Perhaps one of the best tips when considering implementing vintage style by using vintage furniture is to keep in mind that it is often best to be consistent with your choice of style and to steer away from over cluttering. It is always a good plan to stay on track with your design, and work from a mood board or scrapbook full of your ideas and inspirations. Pinterest is a great place to start and you could set up your own folder of vintage style ideas to really get your creative juices to flow!
