I love when Vintage features from interior design of the past are updated and included in today’s homes. Here’s a few examples of what is “back-in”, allowing us to borrow from yesteryear to emphasize the charm of any size space in your home

Wallpaper is back, having left our design ethos years go. Used in living spaces and bedrooms, with a variety of colors and patterns it allows you to customize the space! Choose peel and stick for easy DIY installation.

Cozy is back, with smaller well appointed spaces featuring small kitchens and dining nooks or open plan dining for condos and smaller homes fulfills the needs of budget conscious homeowners.

Linoleum is back. Think bathroom checkerboard. It’s water-resistant, perfect for bath and kitchen. Paired with vintage inspired brass or metal faucets and fixtures and a claw foot tub; the old becomes new.

Still - shag carpet is still not the best choice, though updating vintage design with newly minted vintage options makes for a fresh turn on old design.

5 Tips for Using Neutrals for Interior Design

Using neutral interior design colors adds unity and tranquility to a space.

1. Types: Warm Neutrals - Black, brown tan, gold. Cool Neutrals - White, ivory, silver, gray. Keep warm with warm and cool with cool, adding splashes of color.

2. Use Texture, patterns and tonal variations in wall art, window treatments, upholstery, wall coverings, tile, flooring, rugs and accessories, keeping them complimentary to add interest to your space. Think .

3. Brighten up white walls with silk or seagrass wall coverings for an elegant look. Use drapes to match your wall color and contrasting furniture like iron wood, acrylic; keeping your choices consistent.

4. Your decorative base point is the wall color, so keep your paint selection somewhere between 30-50% lighter than the rooms decor to build deeper tones there.

5. Even pinks, low saturated blues and pewter can also be neutrals along with dark charcoal and graphite gray.
