Reinvent your home with a vintage meets pop look

Ease into summer with a look that’s bold and modern but with a few cheeky winks to the past

 

Sure, minimalist styling and chic metallic palettes are everywhere, but sometimes all your heart wants is some eccentricity - something bright, cheerful, and upbeat that stands out gloriously.

Don’t be fooled by conventional wisdom that says old and new are at loggerheads with each other. Show of your favourite antiques in unconventional ways for a result that’s both edgy, yet cohesive.

80:20 - When you’re going for some cheeky touches, forget one quirky piece – try five. But have a soothing piece at the centre of the look. In this case this traditional chair is flanked by a photo gallery and bright sculptural and geometric art and even a cool pendant lamp. Yes, you can totally get away with using a neon green, a cool cerulean and a daffodil yellow in the same space.

 

Reuse and upcycle - This look is all about confluence. Revive a decadent damask as upholstery or luxurious leather pouf as a footstool or even stack old encyclopedia with a tray on top as a side table. The trick is in how you breathe new life into a piece. Give it a fresh coat of matt varnish, a cool wash of paint or augment it with something modern.
 

Relief works - When working with a bold, big theme like this one, a great trick is to use nature for some visual relief. Punctuate the creativity energy of the space with white blossoms or a plant to offer soft contrast and balance.

 

With a look that’s as inclusive as this, you need never choose between the past and the present again. Instead bring them all to the fore in your own unique way.
