10 Ways to Add Vintage Style to Your Home
This spring, we’re all about updating and decorating our spaces. Whether you’re settling into a new place or you want in on the redecorating action, we know you want your home to feel… well, homey. One of our favorite ways to make over our home decor is by incorporating vintage pieces into a modern design scheme. We’re sharing our favorite looks from gorgeous spaces that used vintage decor and nailed it. Scroll on for all the inspo you need to keep your home unique and fresh.
1. Dresser: Take it back to the ’60s with this dresser. The best thing about this piece is that it has room for more eclectic pieces. Decorate it with vases and lamps for some extra pizzaz. (via Trendey)
2. Trinkets: Some of us might already collect vintage trinkets. Instead of stashing them in boxes, put them out as decor. A thrift store is a wonderland of diverse trinkets that’ll make your home special. (via Apartment Therapy)
4. Record Player: Record players bring much more than sound to a place. Showcase your record player in that empty space under a window, and your guests will always have music for making an entrance. (via Design Sponge)
7. Couch: Retro couches bring a new level of awesome into a living room. Look for one with a bright-colored fabric or print on it. After your couch is set, you can begin playing with the rest of your living room’s color palette. (via Apartment Therapy)
8. Vanity: Vanity pieces do not have to stay in the bedroom. Give your living room some character and transform a vanity into a statement piece by putting one against an empty wall. (via Homestead Seattle)
9. Handkerchiefs: Dedicating a wall to framed vintage handkerchiefs is an easy and inexpensive way to create a one-of-a-kind gallery wall. You can find handkerchiefs and scarves at thrift stores or antique shops. (via House + Home)
10. Maps: Old maps give a room elegance and easily fill in the empty space on your wall. If you like to travel, then looking at a map can serve as inspiration for your next trip. (via Apartment Therapy)
