Style Spotlight - Vintage for the Home

Even if you don't already have any original vintage in your home, you might be surprised how much of your contemporary decor takes inspiration from a bygone era. Just like the world of fashion, homeware and interior designers are inspired by many factors and often with vintage influence. Take the recent trend for pampas grass in the home, this was hugely influenced by Mrs Hinch and took off big time on social media as a new and fresh modern look. But pampas grass is certainly nothing new. It was massive in the 1970s and then had a re-surge in the nineties, before becoming popular again today.

Pampas grass - modern trend or vintage favourite?

You may also be someone who loves to have lots of original vintage pieces in your home, whether you mix and match with more contemporary furnishings or opt for a real authentic retro look. Perhaps you like to collect vintage pieces from a specific era or a certain label or enjoy sourcing gifts for a loved one who does. No matter how retro or modern your home, there will always be a place for some original vintage homeware and here at My Vintage we have some truly amazing pieces. Come with me to take a look at some of my current favorites for all budgets as we shine our Style Spotlight on Vintage Homeware...
