Industrial Vintage Vibe
Vintage inspired home décor allows for an interesting mix materials that aren’t typically used to decorate.

Creating a vintage inspired home or room gives you the opportunity to mix different interior design styles and achieve an interesting result every time. Shabby Chic decor has been a big trend amongst interiors designers in recent years likely due to the cosy homely atmosphere it creates. If you like Shabby Chic decor or have already implemented some shabby chic elements in your home why not mix it up a little and create a blended classic vibe. This hallway is great example; showcasing a welcoming antique sideboard with a framed distressed mirror, china pieces, plaid printed lampshades against a classic bright white door frame.
Retro Vintage Ideas
Channel some radiance into your space by implement the colourful retro side of vintage decor. Let geometric patterns flow in and add bold and vibrant colours such as red, orange, yellow, green and blue. If this is too much colour for you why not create a canvas of black and white walls and moldings and bring through bright retro elements through fabrics, table decorations or one off pieces of furniture.
