This blog post contains information from the Better Homes and Garden's article "House Tours: Decorate with Vintage Finds". In this Work it Wednesday blog post I am sending you to the source for the info:
My personal favorite tips:
Mix Old with New: I believe buying vintage is all about making it work with your current lifestyle. I love eclectic decor. Eclectic decor adds originality, personality, and depth to an otherwise drab decorating scheme.
Repurpose New Items: Being that I make a living repurposing/upcycling vintage items, I'm a big fan of this piece of advice
Mix the Elements: In other words, a room doesn't have to have all wood furniture or all metal... it can be mixed. I said it above and I'll say it again...Eclectic decor adds originality, personality, and depth to an otherwise drab decorating scheme.
Find Beauty in the Old: This is my core belief and why I started Happy Day Vintage. So yes, this is one of my favorite tips.
Thank you for reading my blog
Have a Happy Day!
