Your Modern Vintage Home

Submitted by on Tuesday, 27 April 2010 | No Comment

We all loved the little bits and bobs that we remember seeing at our grandparents, well good news! These things are back in fashion once again and by the looks of things, for the long haul.

So we have found some great additions to your home to really capture those memories whilst keeping it modern and fresh and up to date.

With all of the beautiful cream rooms occupying homes at the moment it’s great to inject a bit of colour for the wow factor. Try this turquoise table lamp for £135 from Graham and Green. It will boost your home with that little hint of the 70s and to be honest just looks fab!

Crockery is always a great way to give your kitchen some life, out with the plain plates and in with the vintage. This great blue and white hen set with a polka dot theme is very cute and country which will really compliment a modern and sleek kitchen and remind you of being at your grans…without scary tea-cosies.

There is nothing more homely than a good cup of tea, and this gorgeous lamp is quirky, fun and definitely not something you’ll see in everybody’s home. You’ll find it at Laura Ashley for £100. Made from classic china cups and a fabric shade it is certainly a must-have for those who want what no one else has.

One thing that screams retro is patterns, and in particular are floral patterns. You found them on upholstery, crockery, wallpaper and rugs. And we’ve found a great simple rug you can incorporate into your own home without scaring any visitors. With a large floral print that covers only half of the rug it is still very modern without looking too contemporary. Find it at Dunelm Mill for £49.99.

So go and decorate and bring in some vintage style to your modern home, with no doilies in sight!
