Dress Me Vintage

Creating a vintage look in your home doesn’t have to cost the earth. Whilst there is the option to seek out vintage or vintage style furniture to kit out your whole home, choosing an eclectic mismatched look can work just as well – giving you your furniture needs without seeming overbearing or being too costly. The key behind the vintage look is clever styling, using soft colours, dreamy whites, delicate patterns and textured fabrics.

At Heavenly Homes and Gardens, we have a multitude of items to give your home that vintage chic edge. From vintage, reworked furniture, to pretty teaware for your kitchen dresser, to all those important home accessories such as pretty drawer handles and glass dressing table sets. As well as having products to add enviable style to your home, we also have tons of tips to help you dress your home vintage. Here are just a few!

Add ornate storage

Choose key focal points for each room, such as a decorative antique French style dressing table or 1920’s screen for the bedroom. Think swirls, baroque features and elegant legs.

Distressed finishes

Nothing says vintage chic like an upcycled piece of furniture with that classic distressed finish. You can either shop our collection of upcycled furniture, or have a go yourself by picking up an old mahogany dressing table from an auction or charity shop, painting it with white or pale grey chalk paint, distressing with sandpaper, and changing the handles for a feminine, glamorous touch. Distressed doesn’t have to mean lots of work for you though, you can just choose accessories such as distressed photo frames, candle sticks or vases to add a vintage touch to each room.

A touch of lace

Lace details are perfect for conveying that vintage feel. We love the idea of hanging a single, delicate lace panel from your bedroom window. To prevent to early morning sun from peeking through the lace in the mornings, fit a plain white or neutral roller blind behind the panel which you can use during night time.

Style up your furniture

Add some charm and character with vintage style items. From our glass dressing table set – which you can decorate with pearls or fill with a few beautiful stems, to our bombay duck china – which you can proudly display on a kitchen dresser. For your shelves or mantlepiece, why not use glass dessert dishes to store single flower heads?
