Every year, interior design trends change. But some timeless trends last forever. Janavi Javeri, Founder and Interior Stylist, Walls and Things, brings seven vintage home trends that will help you add a touch of nostalgia and sophistication into your homes.
Mid-century modern magic
Popularised during the mid-20th century, this style is characterised by clean lines, organic shapes and minimalist forms and effortlessly blends functionality with elegance. The mid-century modern furniture, such as the iconic Eames chairs or a sleek teak sideboard, can be incorporated into modern spaces, adding a touch of retro chic and enduring appeal.
The Victorian era was all about an opulent and ornate style that exudes a sense of grandeur and sophistication. Elements, such as, elaborate chandeliers, intricately patterned wallpaper, and richly upholstered furniture can be thoughtfully integrated into contemporary interiors. You can achieve a captivating look by combining Victorian touches with modern aesthetics.
Timeless terrazzo Originally a cost-effective flooring option in Italy, terrazzo has made a comeback in recent years. The versatility of this composite material, which combines chips of marble, quartz and glass in a cement binder along with its vibrant colours and speckled patterns, makes it a beautiful addition to homes.
Classic farmhouse allure
Farmhouse style harks back to the simplicity and rustic charm of rural life. The enduring appeal of exposed wooden beams, vintage farmhouse sinks and shiplap walls aims for a cozy and welcoming ambiance of farmhouse aesthetics.
Art Deco elegance
The lavish and luxurious Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 1930s still influences contemporary interior design. The use of geometric shapes, mirrored surfaces and metallic accents can infuse a sense of timeless elegance into modern spaces. Art Deco remains a beloved choice for those seeking to add a touch of glamour and extravagance to their homes.
Pastel hues, reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s, have stood the test of time in interior design. Soft pinks, mint greens and baby blues can help add a fresh and calming ambiance. Pastels continue to be a popular choice and can be applied as wall colours and furnishings, as well as decor accents.
Eclectic mix and match
Drawing inspiration from various vintage eras and design styles, the eclectic mix and match trend help showcase your personality and preferences. The art of blending different vintage elements, textures and patterns to create a cohesive and visually-striking space reflects individuality and a love for timeless design.
