Four Ideas for Styling New & Vintage Together

We’re sharing some tips today for using both new and vintage pieces in your home. We all love the depth that vintage pieces give to a space, but we don’t want our homes looking like Grandma’s attic either. We’ve put together a few ideas for incorporating old and new pieces together.


Add Vintage Rugs to Your Modern Space

“Style throwback pieces next to ultra modern furnishings or spaces,” suggests Libby MacCarthy at The Nest. The vintage runner adds depth and pop to this ultra modern kitchen from Amber Interiors, and gives inspiration for a quick and easy way to add a touch of vintage to any newer space. Vintage runners are definitely having their moment in kitchens and bathrooms, but you can find a rug that will work in nearly any space in your home. Be sure to check out the beautiful collection of vintage rugs from Floored at Cottage Grove Vintage Market next time you stop by.


Pick Your Palette, Then Mix Old & New

This living room by Vintage Revivals combines a new sofa with a vintage credenza, DIY chairs, and a mix of new and vintage accessories. The entire space is anchored by soft creams, grays, pinks, and light wood, bringing a cozy and cohesive feel to the eclectic decor. Not sure where to start? In her book Love the House You’re In, Paige Rein suggest by picking a “kernel,” an item that inspires how you want the room to feel. This could be a vintage print, a chunky throw, an old photo, or a souvenir from your favorite travels. Let the kernel serve as an anchor as you choose your colors, textures, and decor for the space.


Collect It


If you’re nervous about vintage pieces making your space feel dated, start with a collection styled in a modern way. We love taking vintage botanical prints and styling them in modern frames, or using open shelving to display a collection of vintage dishware. Sources: 1 | 2 | 3

Double Duty


If you’re wanting to incorporate a vintage vibe without sacrificing modern technology, think about using vintage pieces to conceal your electronics. You can cleverly hide a TV in a vintage armoire, tuck cords and cables behind vintage artwork, or add hinges to the drawer of a refinished dresser to stash your TV or stereo accessories. Sources: 1 | 2 | 3
