Timeless & trendy vintage home decorations to try

by Mary Kay Daughters/ Jeff Brown 01/22/2023

Regardless of your personal design style, there are plenty of ways to incorporate vintage home decorations. Trends repeat themselves over time in interior design, making certain elements – such as vintage accents – timeless.

Interested in adding some vintage flair to your indoor space? Here are some tips for decorating with vintage decor:

Keep it light with rattan

Rattan furniture and accessories are becoming more popular in interior design for the versatile, laid-back aesthetic they create. Vintage rattan chairs, accent tables, light fixtures and shelves are excellent ways to add a natural element to a space.

Because rattan is so durable, it makes for the perfect kind of vintage furniture to add to your space, regardless of its age and use.

Add luxury with velvet

Velvet is a surprisingly versatile material, and vintage velvet furnishings add instant luxury to any room. A velvet chair, stool or bench bought at an estate sale makes a great addition to a space no matter the design style.

If you can’t find any vintage furniture, you can try adding velvet into your design with more contemporary pieces and accessories.

Go for contrasting curves

A vast amount of modern decor uses clean lines and geometric shapes, so adding some vintage curves into a design can provide great contrast that pulls the room together. Much of the popular furniture from the 1960s and 1970s featured soft edges and more rounded shapes that work well alongside contemporary pieces with hard angles. Consider using accessories or wall art featuring curved shapes as a starting point.

These are just a few ways to bring vintage home decor into your space. Whether with furniture or smaller decorative accents, vintage items can work with a variety of design styles. Keep these tips in mind the next time you find yourself browsing an online antique store.
