The spaces below make great use of combining the kitchen space and eating area into one room. It's an especially good idea for small spaces or smaller home floorplans. since it cuts out the need for another whole separate room. It also means no one is cut off from the crowd while cooking.This design combines sitting space at an island and a dining table right off the kitchen for an area with plenty of seating.
Putting them in a modern frame can keep family history alive or celebrate a past era without overwhelming the overall room design.Antiques with a timeless cultural feel to them. like oriental ceramics or Victorian teacups. are best served in a modern-looking curio so that they are on display in an updated way.
After that. tackle your accessories. A good place to start: group accent pieces in threes. Try three colored glass bottles on your entryway table. or use only three pillows on your living room sofa.Once you're done rearranging what you have on hand. take a step back. and use your sense of perception to suss out how the room feels.
The most direct approach for decorating with antiques is an overall retro design. The photo above shows some creative ways to place old retro pieces. The worn luggage in the corner adds a traditional travel theme; old centerpieces highlight the coffee table; classic art adorns the walls; retro floor lamps add to the vibe.Also. remember fabric styles and opt for retro patterns like large. ornate flowers.
