WINDS OF VINTAGE AT HOMES

YOU CAN HAVE THE WINDS OF VINTAGE BLOW AT YOUR HOME WITH THE TROUSSEAUX THAT YOUR MOTHER OR GRANDMOTHER USED TO USE.

Vintage is among this year’s dominating trends. It is not as hard as you think to have your home a feel of vintage. If you would like to follow this trend and have your home dominated by the winds of vintage, bring out the old linens, chests, or classic picture frames of your mother or grandmother from the attic or storage.

TROUSSEAUX OF BRIDES
Create a nostalgic and different decoration style at your home by reusing the old linens and embroidered calicos that used to be among your mother’s trousseaux. For instance, if you have an available spot at the entrance, you could place the chest that you’ve inherited from your grandmother there and top it with an embroidered calico to create your own deco style.

ACCESSORY TREND
This year, old gas lamps and coal irons are among the objects that you can use to decorate your home besides the modern accessories. You can also create a nostalgic corner by using your grandmother’s old picture frames to display your black-white photos.

LACEWORK COMES TO LIGHT
Lacework, which is an indispensible among all trousseaux, comes to light once again. It is possible to reuse the lace bedspreads inherited from your grandmother with a modern touch. You can create your own style and a charming and striking effect by spreading orange or turquoise quilt under your white or earth colored lacework.

HANDCRAFTED PILLOWS
Orlon-knit pillowcases and blankets are among the details that you could use to follow the vintage fashion this year. Colorful orlon-knit pillowcases and blankets that enliven your sofas bring the past to the present. You can add a colorful and warm ambience to your home with those pillows or blankets that you can toss to a corner of your sofa. If you don’t have one, you can make your own pillow or throw collection.
