Room Decor Ideas: VINTAGE MODERN
If you have an eclectic style, mixing new or modern and vintage décor and furniture is just a FABULOUS design idea. For example, you can place a modern pillow on Grandma’s antique chair you inherited or reupholster it with a contemporary pattern. Or, add a colorful antique rug to a white kitchen. This design idea blends both functionality and style.
This style includes furnishings with design elements such as slender and angles legs on chairs and consoles. Wood is in different shades of blond and brown. The design reflects the time of World War II through the 1960′s. You can also acheive this look by mixing modern pieces with antique finds. This style also looks great with industrial inspired pieces.
What I love about this style is the eco-friendly aspect of literally turning trash into treasure. In this style, it is common to take reclaimed materials and upcycle them into one of a kind pieces. Before throwing away old furniture, think twice to see if you can use it in a way that it was not intended.
The best part of this style is that it is budget-friendly as well! Thrift store, estate sales, and flea market finds are ideal for this style. Buy vintage accent pieces like a coffee or side table; and modern larger pieces like a sofa or armchair. Here are some examples of vintage modern rooms. I picked these rooms because they were all so different, yet elegant and inviting.
These inspirations are from Elle Decor and HGTV TV shows, Divine Design and Design on a Dime.
