Keep it Light & Bright:
Although you don’t have to keep everything quite as bleached as with shabby chic, white or light colours as the main theme for your interior are a good starting point. It creates the perfect backdrop for eye-catching furniture and accessories that will bring your interior to life.
Feel the Vintage
With an overall light interior, make sure you add enough warm materials so it doesn’t become too cold and sterile. Authentic materials such as wood, fabrics and leather are a must here. Whether it’s your furniture, accessories, or rugs and artwork, these materials will add the warmth that is necessary for your house to be a home and Edison style light bulbs add just the right amount of vintage charm to make a light interior stylish.
As with many interiors, Vintage Chic needs a balance between all these elements. If you overdose on vintage elements, your house might look like a granny’s parlour. If you go all classic, your house might lose all its warmth and friendliness. If you evenly divide weight between no. 1 – 4, you get the best of everything.
