Vintage interior design is definitely out of the ordinary and adding vintage style elements to the home decor is usually tasteful. We also admire those authentic vintage homes that have saved their style over the century or that were refurbished. And while you can’t create authenticity where there’s none, you can create a vintage style.
Pastel colors, usually light brown, green or blue shades, or often just plain white. Wallpapers and tapestries with floral patterns. Old and antique accessories, such as clocks, books, boxes and chandeliers, let alone vintage furniture. All these are the traits of the vintage style and using them you can hint to it in your home decor. Don’t be afraid to also use rustic or shabby chic furniture and accessories, and especially French country style as they can also create the vintage feel.
