Vintage finds for nostalgic feels

Vintage finds for nostalgic feelsChanging the look of your home is a good form of exercise for the mind and body. Searching for alternative designs allows your inner creativity to flow while moving the furniture around gives your body a quick workout.

The vintage look is among the designs that many homeowners prefer as it can give a home—or any space for that matter—that classic, cozy and nostalgic vibe. Achieving the vintage feel, however, need not burn a hole in one’s pocket. Vintage furniture and accents can be found almost everywhere, provided you know where to look.

At Wilcon Depot, you can easily find pieces of furniture that will allow you to DIY that vintage style, whether it’s for your home, office nook or shop.  Known as a one-stop-shop for home improvement and construction supplies, Wilcon also offers cute vintage accents to complete that look.

Color schemes

FEATURED STORIES

Low-key colors such as beige, gray and sand cream are often used for the interiors to achieve that vintage feel. But shades of light pink, pale blue and pale lilac are also acceptable. The color scheme in your walls should be bright but not flashy. Use colors that are noble and calm.

Natural materials

The use of natural materials such as wood, rare stones and natural fabrics is encouraged. The idea is to make a place  look like it was built decades ago. The rustic wooden table from Wilcon exudes that vintage taste.

‘Old fashioned’

An old-fashioned desk calendar will give your workplace a dose of vintage, while the gasoline pump clock will be a good accent to your living area.

Upholstery

Vintage may mean old but it doesn’t translate to boring. Upholstery should be a little brighter to highlight the contrast of the low-key color scheme of the walls. Furniture with floral upholstery is appropriate for shadeless rooms. Decorative pillows with floral pattern will complete the look.

Discarded items

Finally, vintage items that are often discarded like an old rotary dial telephone, music boxes, antique clocks and chandeliers will help create a special atmosphere in your place.
