Vintage interior design is tricky. On the one hand, it’s easy to see why some would take long to re-create the feel of elegance that is synonymous with homes of the past. On the other, it’s all too easy for a design to come off looking like it belongs in Grandma’s house. This is one occasion where striking the right balance is crucial.
To pull this off, we round out the room with modern-day acquisitions that showcase vintage-inspired details. For example, we looked for a piece with contemporary, clean lines done in a weathered finish. Alternatively, we found an item that’s done in a trendy colour or finish, yet is also more ornate.
