Antiques are amazingly prominent today and provide a dramatic touch to your living space. But being a vintage lover, one should have a proper understanding of proper aesthetic quality when dealing with vintage home decor.
Ways to decorate your home with antique décor pieces:
Building focal point:
One of the best things while decorating your living space with vintage pieces is that you have complete freedom to create clutter and overdo it. But to avoid excessive clutter you must include one item which serves as a focal point-for example a vintage coffee table, an antique painting or a large antique mirror. Using any of these antique decor pieces as a centre piece will help you create boundaries.
Keep it practical
When decorating with antiques, you have the freedom to buy anything and everything that attracts you but still you need to select the antiques pieces wisely. When buying something old, it is important to ensure if that serves modern day purpose as well–just like an umbrella holder, vintage clock or a hallway mirror.
Maintaining symmetry while decorating your home adds quantity to each of your decorative pieces and also makes your living space beautiful. Always try to choose decorative pieces in pairs to add a comforting balance to your home.
Keep it minimal
Try to keep it minimal while decorating your home with vintage pieces. Antiques are usually heavy decor pieces so adding too much of these pieces make your room look a bit out-dated. Sticking to the basic antique decor pieces such as wall hangings, mirrors, tables etc provides a breathing space to your living space.
Pick random stuffs
It is not at all necessary to think out of the box while decorating your home with antiques. You can always pick random stuffs spontaneously without the need of pre-conceived ideas. Picking random things sometimes help you choose the best ones.
Try to hang a modern piece of decor such as a modern painting as a contrast to your antique. This harmonious pairing of old and new enhances the look of both the pieces and also adds a touch of glamour to your living space.
A large antique mirror not only adds personality to your room but also creates an illusion of a larger room by reflecting light throughout the entire space.
Break the rules
Your antique showpieces must not confine to a single period. Try to collect pieces that vary in period, color, shape, size and form. Arranging them together creates timelessness and adds a classic touch to your room.
Accentuate with colors
Give life to your antiques with bold and bright colors. This combination brings warmth, history and uniqueness to your living space.
