In with the new? More like in with the old, at least, according to trends popping up in the interior design world. Vintage is making a comeback in homes nationwide, so why not incorporate some of these old-school elements into your space, as well? From fabric choices to color palettes, broaden your horizon with these trending interior options.
Bring on the velvet
There’s a luxurious quality in adding velvet touches to your home that other fabrics just don’t achieve. A sofa or a love seat could help bring velvet into your space, but if the splurge on a piece of furniture isn’t in your budget, consider throw pillows, poufs, or even curtains for a dramatic look.
Light it up
Do you have artwork you want to show off? Is your gallery wall not getting enough light to truly bring out the quality of the pieces? Think about putting light fixtures on the wall to enhance the artwork you have. While this used to be considered a dated effect, it’s something that many homeowners are bringing back to distribute light to decor that isn’t being put on display properly.
Accessorize with antiques
If your grandparents’ vintage luggage is sitting in the attic collecting dust, think about turning those timeless pieces into functional accessories instead. Repurpose to use for a coffee table, a bedside table, or even get crafty and turn a suitcase into a bar cart. Accessorize using other antiques that you or other family members may have lying around, and watch as your home transforms into a truly unique space.
Bold is the move
Neutrals—specifically all-white kitchens, muted living rooms, and earth-toned bathrooms—have been all the rage for the past few years, but color is finally having its time in the spotlight. Color schemes, reminiscent of the ‘40s and ‘50s, are making a comeback, and are great for really making your interior pop. Don’t be afraid to breathe more life into your home via bright- colored paint, textures, or patterned wallpaper.
Consider these vintage home trends to add more personality to your interior while paying homage to some iconic eras.
