This look is a crowd pleaser for anyone who loves their modern home comforts but wants to inject some character details into their loving spaces. This trend ideally works in homes that already have some interesting features, such as exposed beams, original floorboards or panelled walls.

This trend can equally be re-created with a considered balance of old and new pieces that work together in harmony. Reclaimed wood is the core material that holds this look together – look for unique pieces that show plenty of grain and texture, rather than items that are perfectly finished.

An extension of cottagecore, this trend embraces the iconic 19th century movement, born out of the industrial revolution. The movement aimed to reform how things were made and reverse the damaging effects of machine- dominated production, increasing the value of hand-made, decorative pieces. This trend is gaining real momentum as people are appreciating the value of handmade and decorative styles.

Antique, repurposed, salvaged and retro pieces all have their place in a vintage scheme. The key is to reference the look, using strong colours, favourite pieces and a less-is-more approach for a vibrant, cohesive aesthetic. The key to this approach is to provide plenty of contrast.
