Vintage Elegance

The inspiration and design of any vintage piece always intrigues me. The challenge lies in how we match vintage with our regular home décor. If you have too many vintage pieces in one room you get a museum and dated look. You need to strike a balance by combining antiques with modern pieces.

My interest in vintage has grown. I believe it’s not suitable for all homes but it’s a fun way to inject life and personality to any tired space. An old vintage trunk can be a coffee table or an old dresser works great as a hallway table and upholstery is a great way to freshen up an old piece. Here are some pictures that show how old and new creates a pleasing contrast.
