Use vintage fabric
Use vintage fabric to create cozy accessories. One vintage curtain panel can yield up to three 20-inch square pillows to accessorize your bedroom.
Mix furniture styles and centuries. Group heirloom antiques with newer pieces for a relaxed, lived-in feeling. Or simply add antique accent pieces, like antique flower prints on the wall.
Try print walls
Try an elegant, timeless print on the walls or curtains of a guest bedroom or bathroom, like a toile print. It adds a coziness and a touch of whimsy.
Choose strong fabrics
Choose a strong fabric for the main furniture pieces and design the rest of the room around it. Bold colors or graphic prints instantly add a homey feel. Mix textures to add warmth and interest.
Add quirky accents
Add quirky accents, such as homemade drawings, paintings, sculpture, or an odd lighting fixture. Use your own special touch to make a unique impression.
Warm up a room
Warm up any room with long curtains, big pillows or cushions, a plush area rug, and comfortable furniture to make everyone feel right at home.
