Adding a statement piece of vintage furniture and making it the focal point of a room really adds interest. You don’t have to go all out, but can mix old and new from different periods.

The Telegraph reports that small spaces can always be enhanced with a bit of vintage and suggests using an art deco style mirror in an en-suite bathroom for a bit of glamour.

DIY style

If you don’t have the budget for new furniture, you could put your crafting skills to use and create something to hang or put on a shelf. Why not bring the 70s back with a macrame kit to make a plant or mirror holder? You can get inspiration and ideas from a variety of specialist macrame kit suppliers. You could also consider making a wall hanging or macrame coasters for your coffee table.

If you haven’t got time to make your own, there are affordable ways to add vintage textiles with cushions and throws for a splash of colour.

Lighten up

Another option is to look at vintage or antique lighting, as this adds glamour both in the daytime and at night when lit. There are many decorative light features available, from classic chandeliers to art deco wall uplighters.

When it comes to vintage charm, it’s not about how much you spend, but what you like and what suits your personal style. Don’t be afraid to give it a go, as many items can be sourced for very little and you can also upcycle pieces to give them a new lease of life.
