Tips to get the best vintage style
In interior decoration, as well as in other areas such as fashion or design, the vintage style is understood as one that includes elements and furniture that, while maybe wouldn´t be cataloged as antiques, they recreate the splendor of older times.
During the last years its popularity has been increasing and there are many who have decided to give a 360 degree turn to their home opting for an old-fashioned atmosphere, with delicate yet romantic airs.
Furniture with a lot of personality
Tables, chairs, shelves, sofas ... it is very important to work on the furniture aesthetics to achieve a brilliant result that would transport ourselves to the past in each space of the home. The aged or worn-out furniture is a guaranteed success. If you have time - and you want - you can consider acquiring an old piece of furniture and restore it.
Otherwise there are many shops that sell a wide variety of retro style furniture. Keep in mind that there is furniture from the 50s and 60s such as furniture bars, dressers, cabinets or cupboards, among others. Thanks to these, the vibe will be better achieved.
Details that make a difference
The capitoné is, without a doubt, one of the most representative upholstery techniques of the 19th and 20th centuries. Even today, this trend has gone beyond the barriers of interior decoration to the fashion industry where it has taken a strong hold on some footwear collections and accessories, such as handbags and purses.
The aged leather Chesterfield sofa is the most iconic and most demanded element that follows this technique. It’s essential for those who want to achieve a more elegant style.
Other details that will help to recreate a vintage environment are the use of windows as shelves, to place books or plants; the incorporation of stained-glass windows in the doors; the use of wallpaper or the inclusion of decorative antique elements, such as drawer cameras.
