Styling Vintage in a Modern Home

Mid century desk and chair

Vintage décor adds character, depth and texture to a space, telling the story of who lives in the home. Steeped in history and full of stories, these items add character to spaces that can sometimes feel stale. Layering vintage décor throughout your home will provide a sense of considered curation and elevate your interiors.

Vintage décor styling can easily go from pretty to cramped so try to give your pieces room to breathe. Maybe that vintage vase needs some modern coffee table books and a pretty candle next to it. When mixing vintage finds with more modern styling elements, we often find the vintage piece holds more weight and significance. Let the vintage piece take the foreground and have its moment. As always experiment with what feels right and balanced until you have the perfect mix and remember to keep to similar tones but mix your materiality.
