Turning your home into a cosy and charming place inspired by vintage designs is actually easier than you think. By adding a few distinct touches here and there, you will soon be able to make your home into the chic vintage style that you can see everywhere and also be able to fully understand why this style is so popular. Get started with these awesome ideas.
1. Vintage Chandelier
If you can manage to unearth an antique looking chandelier in flea markets or specialty shops then kudos to you because adding one in your home can instantly make it look much more glamorous. Besides, a chandelier is also a great source of light.
2. Quirky Decorations
Do you have many whimsical odds and ends that you want to display? Put them together artfully on an ordinary bookshelf and make it look like an art display. This is also a fun way to showcase your great flea market finds with ordinary items.
3. Use Salvaged Furniture
Looking at this room, you wouldn’t have known that the bed was actually an old hospital bed that has been reused as a bed in the guest room and it looks super comfy too. Adding the distressed cabinet next to it to serve as a bedside table makes it look even more authentically vintage
4. Floral Wallpaper
Nothing says vintage quite like a room that utilises floral wallpaper. It can instantly transport your home back to an era that time forgot!
5. Antique Luggage
While it may be used as a durable piece of luggage in the past, you can now repurpose it to be a beautiful bedside table with some seriously good storage. And if the mood strikes you, you can also opt to bring it on your travels.
6. Display Decorative Plates
Make like grandma did and proudly put your nice china plates on display on the wall, for some unique wall art. It doesn’t even have to be a matching set to look gorgeous.
7. Jadeite Chinaware
To really make your home feel like it was built in the past, getting a set of these awesome green glassware will play a major part in it. And if it is not in use, just stack it neatly in a china cabinet to honour the bygone eras you are tring to emulate.
8. Vintage Bedroom
To truly turn your bedroom into a room fit for the maidens of the past, then you should incorporate some strong old-fashioned elements such as turning an old window pane into some quirky wall art and add a retro chest on the bedstand for some extra storage.
9. Tiered Curtains
In the olden days, people love to put some cute, whimsical tired curtains on their windows, especially in the kitchen. Mimic this look by putting some fresh, lacey curtains in your kitchen or wherever you fancy.
10. Vintage-style Bathroom
You should also remember to decorate your bathroom in the stylish vintage design by incorporating a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub, some lacey curtains and floral embellishments. Taking your bath has never looked more chic!
