WHY EVERY ROOM NEEDS AT LEAST ONE VINTAGE PIECE

If you're familiar with my style, you know that there's at least one vintage piece in every room of my home.  I believe that adding vintage makes your space unique and interesting.   Just one piece of vintage makes that room completely different from anything anyone else will have.  I follow the same principle of vintage/new mix when I style my space at the store too.

We have just completed our semi-annual clearance sale.  I wanted to completely change the look of the store after the floor sample sale and begin to add my new inventory.  I always try to style my space with coordinating color, like items, and always at least one vintage piece.  This first image shows home decor in sepia tones.  Can you find the vintage pieces I added?

I also purchase new items with a vintage look.  The weathered lamps, finials, and herbarium prints all have a vintage look.  The rug I used as a table runner mimics an oriental rug.

VINTAGE MIXED WITH ITEMS WITH A VINTAGE LOOK

I love these finials and their vintage design.  I added some folding baskets as wall art.

CURVY FINIALS, RUG AS TABLE RUNNER, AND FOLDING WIRE BASKETS

This next space displays blue and white.  I always use wonderful vintage frames.  These frames support bead garlands and create "art" with the decorator paper.

The ginger jar is also vintage.

This next tabletop vignette has more vintage than new.  The centerpiece is a vintage dough bowl.  I filled the bowl with branches and old block prints.  Next to the bowl is a framed print and a wire-covered bottle.

The marbleized frame is antique.  A vintage book is a riser for the bottle.

I already shared that I painted the walls in Benjamin Moore's Wrought Iron.  It's the perfect back drop for this black and white mix.  The vintage items are the pair of door sidelights and the column base under the chandlier.

FERN AND BOTANTICAL PRINTS
VINTAGE DOOR SIDE LIGHTS, CHANDELIER, AND TURTLE SHELLS

I used a chinoiserie decorator paper as a back drop for the vintage chest.  The small dough bowl and the window grate are also vintage.  I love the way the floor lamp with the velvet shade picks up the colors in the back drop.
