Top 5 Charming Vintage Decor Ideas

Ask me what my favourite interior décor trend is, and the answer will be, vintage. It is one of the reasons that fueled my passion to start this blog. The style gives many of us, the feeling of nostalgia; which comes from the addition and mix of tasteful family heirlooms to the décor.

I feel vintage is one of those trends with an ultimate cosy feel with its lush fabrics and mix of textures and colours. Not forgetting the charm exuded from beautiful ornate designs on the furniture and moldings.

Allow me to suggest the mix of vintage and contemporary; It gives a space such a chic, romantic, comfy look. How can you achieve this look in your home or office?

We could start with using vintage or inspired accessories with that nostalgic feel that reminds us of the past trends of the early 20th century and earlier. Join in the fun and start collecting from vintage / antique events, exciting car-booties, and even vintage shops.
