Trends may come and go, but there’s something about those antique styles that make them truly classic. It’s just a matter of balancing antique motifs with more contemporary looks to ensure that no one mistakes your home for a time capsule! In this edition of Pinterest Picks of the Day: Artfully Antique; we’re happy to show you how!
The kitchen shown in this pin has a mix of classic country style and old manor house refinement. Elegant silver towel racks, faucets, and other hardware combine with glass servingware to give the space an upscale appeal. Wood countertops and cabinets add a rustic element.
Sometimes all that’s needed to achieve vintage glamour is a single piece. In the pin above, an old carved bed from Bali transforms a girl’s room into the mature suite of a stylish young lady.
When you want to get that old farmhouse charm, worn paint on a simple chest or watering can will do the trick. Add fresh flowers and you’ll have that extra touch of refinement that is reminiscent of an era decades past.
Going vintage doesn’t mean you can’t still play with color. A fun pastel hue of green covers the classically paneled walls and uniquely carved shelf. The space gets antique touches with dark vintage-style hardware, an opulent perfume bottle, and porcelain dishes.
