Mixing Vintage

Design by: JDP Interiors

Mixing vintage into your decor never gets old. One of the best ways to bring  a sense of character or nostalgia into your home is to place a piece that has already lived a life of its own.  A beautifully worn casegood, door, or pot can add so much history and warmth to an otherwise modern home. They already have their own story to tell and draw people in.

The beautiful room above designed by JDP Interiors with its white walls and modern artwork is softened by the light textured sofa fabric and rough yet subtly worn wood grains of the coffee table.  They make an otherwise brand new and light colored room (which you might fear if you have my five year old)  more approachable and  it also allows you to feel welcome and comfortable.

If you know Amber Lewis’s designs and “shoppe,” you know she never goes without including beautifully curated vintage pieces. Her eclectic style is so casual and refined at the same time, yet her rooms always have a sense of personality. We can never get enough. Can we say “Yes Please” to having these rooms in our own homes?

This fun vintage table has definitely been through a lot.  This was found by yours truly while shopping the “trocs” in Lyon France.  That was one of my favorite things to do while living there. Of course I couldn’t resist bringing home as many treasures as I could. I just love the character it adds to this new modern home.

So when you are looking for a little more character and warmth, don’t forget to add in or find your own vintage pieces. Here are a few suggestions.
