Trying to decide on an interior theme is like trying to choose your favorite child sometimes- it is just too hard. Even if you have a very defined sense of style and obvious tastes, you may not necessarily know exactly what you should go with when it comes to styling out your home. Whether you love things minimal or colorful, there’s one thing you should always consider working with, and that is classic decoration. Because the vintage character is never going to go out of style. It will also give your home character and vibrancy, and allow you to purchase some quality interiors pieces too.
Work with Prints
The first thing to do to help you to achieve this is to work with prints. Color can really change the look and feel of your room, but prints bring vibrancy to every aesthetic. Whether you want to work with a dark brocade, something light and art deco style, or a damask print, these designs are going to be the best way to go for classic decoration. From your walls to your carpet and even the furniture and furnishings, you’ll find that working in different prints will help you to work a lot of character and personality in around your home.
Shop for Lookalikes
You are also going to want to have some antique style pieces into your home. Because there is nothing more classic, or more suitable for creating classic decoration than an antique. Because some antiques can get very pricey, you need to be thinking about what you can do to make the cost more affordable, and that would be to look out for very vintage looking pieces on the High Street. You can also browse apps like VarageSale or go to local flea markets and garage sales to find these gems!
Choose Period Pieces
Next, you should think about investing in some period pieces for around the home. Although you are going to want to get some of your smaller pieces as lookalikes, there’s no reason why you couldn’t pick out period pieces like a leather Chesterfield sofa or bureaux to add around the house. Pieces of furniture like these will always add character and are great pieces to invest in.
Focus on Fittings
Make sure you keep a keen eye on the details around your house too. The fittings and fixtures are subtle but make a huge difference in classic decoration. By adding in things like picture rails or an antique looking fireplace, you’ll easily be able to add to your classic look!
Work with Vintage Accessories
Finally, you are also going to want some vintage accessories. Because again, it’s the finishing touches that can always pull a place together. From an old typewriter to a classic looking radio, it’s the way you style out your accessories that matter. You can often find retro style kitchen appliances and even tap fittings so that you can bring each room alive. And this will allow you to pull the look together!
