There’s no time like the past don’t you think? Today we bring you some vintage style trends to give a retro and even rustic style to your Italian decoration.
Italian decoration is no exception to its vintage trends. There are still some unique vintage decorations techniques which fit right in with the more contemporary styles they are known for. You can combine Italy’s style with a contemporary one easily.
If you live in Italy or just want to give an Italian touch to your home decoration we bring you five vintage style trends which are sure to help you with that.
There is no better way to brighten up and stylize your dining room than with a chandelier. Hang it above your table for a modern feel when you have guests. You can also pair it with more natural elements, like a seagrass rug, to dress it down.
We’ll give you a helpful example: this Botti Suspension Lamp from DelightFULL is perfectly placable in a vintage styled room. As a matter of fact, this lamp has been included in many vintage lighting projects.
Whenever you search for a rustic Italian decoration online you are guaranteed to find tons of classical wooden furniture. We particularly recommend you opt for a dark wood tone: it injects rooms with an old-soul warmth that’s difficult to replicate with paint alone.
Italy is no stranger to fabrics such as velvet, leather, and linen. One good reason you should opt for this kind of furniture is that technology has evolved: we have many stain- and-spill-proof treatments and high-end indoor/outdoor fabrics on the market these days. So there’s more than one good reason to opt for these.
By using classical Italian marble and flooring you are guaranteed to obtain a glamorous entrance to your house. Your guests are sure to stay at the door for a little while admiring the classical charm.
Old and classical collections are meant to be seen and enjoyed especially the Italian ones. Not to mention that they’re instant character builders in any sort of space (even those with a more modern touch). So, have you inherited silver from your great aunt? Do you have a collection of oyster plates no one knows about? Get them out of the drawer or the attic and show them off to your guests.
