Here is an updated vignette from my Christmas Vignette. By taking a few of the Christmas decor pieces off and adding some metal orbs, small boxwood, book and leaving the vintage embosser that belonged to my father in law it now is an everyday masculine memorable vignette.
I don’t know if you all remember my lamps that I tuned into large decor finials? They use to be white. Recently, I chalk painted them to match the decor in the Living room and adding them to the top of the entertainment center. I decided to simplified the shelves around the TV showcasing some personal favorites and some antique pieces.
It’s the personal touches that really make a home special. Why not try making a collage out of special photographs or magazine clippings? There are plenty of crafty and inexpensive ways to add interest to your home. Check out these pins for more ideas. Remember, you’re decorating for yourself and your family, not for anyone else.
A piece of antique furniture or a vintage throw can really add interest to a room. Don’t be afraid to mix and match pieces to create a really unusual feel and this includes combining periods, colours and textures to make your home really unique.
A while back this vintage sewing machine was re-purposed using two different antique pieces to see how that was done you can go here Singer Sewing machine re-purposed.
Here on one of the shelves to combine periods to my decor I added a vintage camera which belonged to my grandparents in the picture.
As lovely as furniture showrooms look, they aren’t real homes. Modeling your rooms on ideas from catalogues can make them look clinical and impersonal. Look in your parents’ or grandparents’ attics for vintage finds if you’re on a budget and can’t afford to buy antiques. Etsy and eBay are excellent places to look for inexpensive decorations.
Where have you been? What did you pick up along the way? Incorporating bits and pieces from your travels into your home decor is an excellent way to add interest and personalization. Think about having kitsch postcards and maps in other languages framed. These things provide great conversation starters and you can even cut maps into different shapes before you frame them, as this has become a fashionable choice that can be quite expensive if you buy ready made rather than doing it yourself. If you have cool scarves picked up at markets abroad, pin them to the walls. This way it won’t matter if you’re not getting away any time soon because you can be reminded of amazing holidays past every day.
