Make a statement by adding antiques to your decor!
Are you a lover of vintage and antique pieces? Do you use them in your decor? If not, you are missing out! Today, I’m going to tell you why you should add antiques to your decor!
Decorating with antiques is an opportunity to decorate your home with unique, statement making pieces that will bring instant character to your space.
Especially when it sparks interesting conversations about where you found it, how old it is, and why you love it.
Adding antiques and collectibles to your decor offers a stylish, interesting, and often practical way to liven up a room.
Vintage pieces can be affordable as well, when you shop wisely. Decorating your homes with unique pieces that have stood the test of time will tell a story and add beautiful layers to your rooms.
These old storied pieces add instant history and soul anywhere they are displayed.
Every house has its own type of beauty, no matter what decorating style you prefer. But, nothing quite beats the timeless beauty of unique antique pieces.
If you want to add a touch of elegance to your home, be sure to add a few vintage pieces here and there. You can bring a great deal of character to the place, and give each room a collected over time look.
Bringing vintage furniture into your home is one of the best ways to add that one of a kind character.
Instead of throwing away old or inherited pieces of furniture, restore it! Sometimes a simple coat of paint or reupholstery is an easy way to update an old piece, breathing new life into it.
Check out estate sales, tag sales, auctions, and flea markets for affordable pieces that can be easily and lovingly restored.
Every room should have one piece that has a history and tells a story. Whether it’s a piece that’s been passed down through your family, or a piece you found while vacationing in France.
Your home should tell a story and reflect your interests and passions. There’s something so special about a piece that was made by hand and has survived the ravages of time.
When I bring an antique piece into my home, I always wonder about the people who made it and used it. What was their life like? What events has it witnessed? What conversations has it overheard? Whose hands have held it?
I can remember years ago, as a child, my sweet mom would take me to garage sales, estate sales, auctions, and flea markets.
Antiquing got in my blood at an early age, and I could easily go antique shopping for hours, looking for those special one of a kind pieces.
Remember to stay true to your own style when incorporating vintage pieces, filling your home with things that truly inspire you. And no matter what your style is, there are vintage and antique pieces out there that will incorporate into your decor beautifully.
Filling our home with unique, vintage finds has been my passion for years. I see the beauty in the old and imperfect, in the worn out and faded. For me, vintage decor is all about filling our home with charm and character.
Inherited antiques tend to have a precious sentimental value. But even if you don’t currently have any heirlooms, don’t worry! Browse the antique stores for sales and begin your own family tradition of passing down those special pieces.
If you don’t currently decorate with vintage and antique pieces, I hope this post has inspired you to start scouring the flea markets and estate sales! It can be quite addicting! And if you are already a lover of antiques, leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite find is!
