We're seeing vintage-sourced furniture and decor emerging in interiors more and more, and it's not difficult to imagine why. The vintage craze is environmentally conscious and budget-friendly, and it can elevate your space in a unique and impactful way.
Now, you're probably wondering what this has to do with TOV, and the answer is - a lot, actually. Mixing old and new is key to creating an elevated space that looks thoughtfully curated and timeless. Blending modern and contemporary items with inherited heirlooms is what makes a home unique.
1. Start small
If you're new to the thrifting/vintage-finding game, start small. Focus on decorating your home one vignette at a time to make a huge difference in the allure of the space. Zone in a corner, vary scale and proportions. For example, showcase a beautiful large vintage candelabra atop our Cordoba Cream Velvet Bar Cabinet in your dining area for show-stopping elegance.
2. Add juxtaposition by layering textiles and materials
Layering textiles and materials is also a fun way to add vintage charm. Add a Turkish rug under our Kimi Sheepskin Chair, beside the very modern Marisol Side Table. The contrast of pieces can create much-needed tension to make a room feel exciting and homey.
3. Place a statement piece next to your vintage find
Situate a heavily curved, overstuffed statement chair like our Slipper Light Grey Velvet Swivel Chair below your favorite Art Deco 1930 vintage pendant light you found at your local antique decor shop.
4. Take your time
This is not a one-stop-shop, decorate-your-home-in-a-day kind of thing. Take your time, source intentionally, and we guarantee you'll have the home of your dreams.
