When it comes to decorating, most homeowners stick to what they know and look to incorporate pieces that appeal to their tastes. However, if you’re looking to amp up the style in your home, you may want to consider a vintage or antique look. While this type of decorating scheme typically conjures up images of flea markets and expensive one-of-a-kind items, you don’t need to spend your weekends antiquing. You also don’t need to shell out a lot of money. The following tips from design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz, the stars of HGTV’s Home by Novogratz will help you create an eclectic look and feel in your home.
-When looking for vintage pieces to incorporate into your home, always be thinking about how items can be repurposed. For example, that antique chest that you recently purchased can also be used as a table and even a storage place for books, games and reading material.
-Not only can vintage items be incorporated into lively gathering spaces, they can also double as learning tools in your kids’ bedrooms. From coffee table books to maps and globes, vintage pieces are great conversation starters.
-A mix-and-match approach will provide an eclectic yet comfortable style to any home. Vintage pieces are a great way to add a touch of livability to ultramodern spaces and even incorporate personality into homes with more traditional décor.
