Vintage Home by Judith Wilson

Book Description

There's an enduring charm to the shabby-chic, Bohemian and ultra relaxed look we now know as Vintage. It's the perfect choice for anyone tired of modern white interiors, and ideal for family living as there is minimal maintenance. Yet opting for Vintage is also a way of life: once you've started scouring for finds, it will become a pleasurable habit hard to break. Best of all, it has become an eco choice: the more we salvage, the better we feel. In short, creating your very own 'Vintage Home' is the perfect antidote to our throwaway world. For anyone keen to escape the wasteland of pared down architecture and identikit shopping, The Vintage Home will show them how to shop cleverly, mix creatively, and put together unique, welcoming and eclectic interiors that are perfect for modern living. Judith Wilson initiates the reader with an exploration of Vintage style's five key looks -'Country Vintage', 'Boudoir Vintage', 'Retro Vintage', 'Urban Vintage' and 'Modern Vintage'. As putting together your chosen look involves a combination of sifting through what you've already got and some leg work, The Vintage Home then takes you shopping in the consumer peripheries of car boots, antique shops and vintage websites. Finally there's a look at each individual room in the house, and at the elements that give a home its sense of style -from radiators and door handles, to sofas, chairs and tables, from lighting to soft furnishings, and from glass and ceramics to paintings and photos. With page after page of inspirational photographs and a wealth of practical ideas, The Vintage Home will show you how to embrace today's new decorative, eclectic mood.
