Creating a Rustic Vintage Home In The Middle Of The City

There is something inherently magical and charming about vintage and rustic interiors. They have an ever-present sense of character and uniqueness that no other interior design style can match. What is meant by “vintage” can be different from one person to another. For someone, it can mean incorporating their family heirlooms that carry stories that go back centuries in your bloodline. For another, it can mean antique and pre-loved items that hold memories of people they do not even know. Ultimately, vintage interior design and decor are all about using items with timeless elegance and untold stories into your interior design.

Here are some tips and inspiration for creating a charming and versatile vintage interior in your home.

 

1. Use colours With a Charming and Soft Intensity

Most vintage pieces have a rustic and distressed look to them mostly due to the wear and tear of being used and making memories. Those textures are what give them character and value as vintage decor. You can soften those textures with charming pale hues with a touch of brightness and life to them. Mint, peaches, and baby blues are popular choices to pair with your vintage colours. Each colour has its unique energy that exudes. Do not be afraid to select colours that truly speak to you and put you in the mood that you want to bring to your chosen space.

 

2. The Beauty of Imperfections

Unlike most modern and contemporary design projects that strive for perfection, a vintage interior focuses on finding the beauty in the imperfections. When you go shopping for decorative pieces, take some time to see how you emotionally connect with the unique imperfections of every piece. Vintage and rustic furniture often come with plenty of dents and damage as a part of their uniqueness. Your aim should be to showcase those imperfections in an aesthetically pleasing way rather than trying to hide them. You can be as minimal or as extravagant as you want, but try to always be mindful and purposeful about the pieces that you choose.

 

3. Repurpose Vintage Furniture

Repurposed furniture means using a piece of furniture for a different purpose than it was originally intended. This is a common design practice in vintage interior design since many beautiful pieces of vintage furniture do not have practical everyday use anymore. A few examples for repurposing furniture would be old trunks as coffee tables and living room storage, wood crates, and ladders as bookshelves, wood pallets as low patio tables that make great gathering places for some morning tea in the springtime. Be creative and think outside of the box. Apart from looking great, repurposing vintage furniture gives them a new life and also helps the environment since you are getting the best use out of them.

 

4. One Step at a Time

Sourcing and designing a beautiful vintage interior takes time. Take your time and do it slowly without rushing to buy every antique piece you can get your hands on. Collect vintage pieces that speak to you over some time, and then start designing your space around them. If you would rather give a quick and complete vintage makeover to your home, it is always better to go for a reputed interior design firm. Once you inform them of your personal preference, they will source stylish vintage furniture for you that perfectly goes with your space.

 

5. Be Selective and Purposeful

Vintage interior design does not mean that you fill a space is all the expensive old pieces of furniture. In fact, you have to be quite careful and selective with what decorative items you pick since the term vintage also alludes to elegance and sophistication. Try to look for a story behind every vintage piece you use in your interior design. The more personal they can be, the better. Therefore, make sure you give a call to your grandmother to see if there are any valuable pieces with a family history that you can acquire before you go antique shopping!
