Vintage Living in a Modern Age

I love being creative with everything from food to decorating my surroundings. I love patterns and color and texture. Using different mediums while decorating any space can give it a big boost. One thing I love using is color in a room to give an accent. A muted color with maybe an accent color on one wall or bold wallpaper is one way to incorporate color in a room.

When looking for furniture, I prefer to find unique things that fit my personality and overall style to go in a room or the house. Resale shops and consignment shops are great places to start. You are sure to find some gems there. Estate sales are also great resource for great finds. There’s also a great online option for vintage finds, Chairish. They have a wide variety of vintage furniture and decor accessories that are sure to add character to any space in your home, and can be easily styled.

This Benjamin Moore Veil shade would be a great base color in any room of the house. You should have a base color that you use throughout the house to build color off of. It helps to ground and connect the house design.

In any room you need a statement piece. Something that truly grounds the room’s design. This Art Deco dresser from Chairish definitely makes a bold statement. It’s classic and the shape is easy to incorporate in to any size room also. The scale of furniture is important. Can’t have a piece that won’t fit, no matter how great the piece is.

Gray is a great color for a bedroom or living room. Maybe even a kitchen. Benjamin Moore Cinder is a great shade to add to one wall or all four. I love this shade because it’s warm and goes with pretty much any color.

Now I love a good pattern, and this Fretwork Trellis Wallpaper from Ballard Designs is a good example of a bold and chic pattern that can add to the design of a room. I think adding this paper to one wall as an accent would be enough to make a statement in a room.

This vintage chartreuse chair would definitely be a great pairing with the fretwork trellis wallpaper. I love the contrast of a bold dark wall color with a bold piece of furniture.

I love adding vintage pieces to a room because it gives new character and style to the space. You don’t have to add a lot of things, just make sure that what you add means a lot to the space and you. Shop Chairish for more vintage finds for your home.
