When you mix vintage and modern, it adds character and it personalizes a space. If you want to mix some vintage style into your home, here are a few tips to get you started.
Fall in Love - First find a piece you absolutely love and then begin to layer items around your favorite item. Don't worry about design rules, because if you are passionate about an item, you will always love the space if it is the inspiration. Pay attention to colors, styles and textures. Of course, when you are shopping for vintage pieces, the items you use need to be in good shape. Some vintage pieces can be updated with some new upholstery or maybe some paint. It is best to go with similar colors or styles or be purposeful if you are going to do something contrasting.
Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder - Don't use a lot of matching sets! All vintage furniture can look old and dated and all modern furniture can take away any individual character and style. A little of both will make the space look charming and fresh.
Keep Your Individuality - Always add a touch of something unexpected to highlight your own personality and style in your space. Try something out of your comfort zone and see where that may take you. You never know what your style may grow into!
