Spruce up your personal space with some rustic furniture
It can well be said that a few rustic furniture pieces encapsulate our immediate ideas about the vintage. The introduction of distressed units, wooden plaques and shelving can work wonders for those who are actually very fond of the “exposed brickwork” look. These furniture pieces should ideally be teamed with subtle accessories and positioned against naturally washed walls.
Consider introducing attractive vignettes
You can add a unique conversation piece at the corner of the living room. Pair up smaller vintage pieces to create a unique vignette. A classic example of such vignette pieces are the pairing up of large mirrors with that of smaller tables in a bid to highlight the size of the mirror.
How about some statement wallpaper?
The wallpapers are available in vintage patterns. One can jolly well opt for the much favorite geometric patterns or else the scruffy floral prints of the seventies. Besides these you can also add animal print to the wall. The purpose of introducing wallpapers is to create a specific “fun” focal point in your room so that you do not end up overpowering other aspects of your personal space.
Concentrate on adding as many DIY pieces as you can to your home. Hope the aforementioned tips will be of a lot of help as you start shaping your “home” dreams to reality.
