The ongoing trend of incorporating vintage elements in a contemporary home becomes increasingly popular. Some element that connects you to your roots stands out and is the representation of the emotional connection that you have to your past and home. These few elements are making a strong comeback and are just waiting for the right inlet into your home. Here are some things that have caught the eye of home decoration enthusiasts.
Lighting and lighting fixtures
The modern lighting fixtures are taking a backseat and people are leaning towards the more rustic variety of lamps and lampshades. The wrought iron wall-mounted lamps, the jali metal lamps, and even the smaller goblets with jali make for wonderful candle holders. After the yellow light was common, there was a phase where white light made an impact. More people are choosing to get yellow light and revisit the nostalgia of childhood memories. Another element that has found a way into our home is the tealight holder which is also a modified light fixture of the past.
There was a time when wooden or metal trunks were very commonly seen in every household. These were used to store excess items or even groceries. A trunk is now considered cool and hip and is a must-have in your home. You can use it as a center table, a bar, a side table, and anything that you like. Same way, the wooden almirah was a thing of the past and it has made a comeback. Almirah is generally made from a dense variety of wood and lasts for generations together.
Smart and functional choices
When the layout and feel of houses changed, there were many changes in furniture as well. People preferred space-saving furniture with multiple uses. Many people preferred the sofa cum bed over the normal sofa. The concept of foldable, hidden spaces, 2-in-1 started and many pieces of furniture underwent a revolution. One way that people incorporate the best of both worlds is to pick up the designs from older homes and add them to their contemporary homes. The cupboards got a sliding wardrobe design, the TV unit became a chest of drawers, the credenza on the entrance became a vintage table, the cutlery cupboard which was used in the olden times became a bookshelf, and so on.
The master bedroom and bedroom
One of the most private and ornate rooms of the house used to be the master bedroom. That changed drastically when the living room became the focus. The highest chunk of the budget was assigned to the living area to make it not only impressive but also unique. The luxury quotient was taken to the next level by adding plush chairs and recliners in the living area. Whereas in the bedroom, instead of the four poster beds, there was a bed made of engineered wood with additional storage under it. You can choose a fictional combination of both and still enjoy the regal feeling of a king-size bed with a tapestry on top.
These simple touches of luxury can make your home majestic.
