If you are the type who loves a romantic, cozy and nostalgic decor, then you need to discover all the secrets of the vintage style and start applying them today in your home.
But after all what is vintage? Vintage is a style that became famous in fashion and decoration and that refers to everything that was in the past, more precisely between the decades of 20 and 80. But be careful: do not confuse retro with vintage.
A vintage décor is also a retro decor, but a retro decor is not always vintage. Did you have a knot in your head? Calm down, people explain. The vintage decoration is directly related to the pieces and objects that in fact belonged to the past, that is, were produced and used at that time and, for one reason or another, survived and continue to occupy their space in the decoration.
Already the retro decoration is formed by present objects produced with the appearance of the furniture and appliances of old. That is, they are re-readings of the past. However, the retro decor allows new and old objects to share the same space, and an exclusively vintage decoration is made up only of old pieces that can be restored or not.
Both of these decorating proposals have their positive side and negative side. In retro decoration, furniture and appliances are easier to find, and they have the technology of the current products, but in return they usually end up costing more than objects without this aesthetic appeal.
Already the vintage decor can come out for free if you have in your house or in your family's house antique pieces and objects from the time of your grandparents. However, if you do not have anything like it you will need to spend time and money to mine pieces in thrift stores and antique stores, some of which may cost a small fortune.
When it comes to going out looking for vintage objects, keep in mind the location of the house that will receive the decoration and how it will be complemented. You can invest in typewriters, wall clocks, appliances such as blenders and blenders, armchairs, sofas, vinyl records, telephone sets, radio and TV sets. Be careful not to overdo it by putting too many pieces in the environment.
Try still mixing the proposals and adding both retro and vintage objects at the same time, or use only what you have on hand giving that touch of discreet nostalgia to the environment. The nostalgic proposal of decoration can be complemented by the use of the pastel tones , which were the predominant colors at that time. Use them on the walls and in the cabinets, for example, even if they have a more modern line.
