Apartment interior is actually different from usual house interior. For those condo dwellers, you have to be able to fit small space, but still make it comfortable and artistic enough without overwhelming it. And when it comes to style and design, vintage will never fail to make it comfortable for you, even more than modern apartment interior. Here are some ideas for vintage apartment look which you can apply.
Instead of browsing and finding your furniture pieces in Ikea, it’s more recommended to find it in your local thrift store. There, you can find more aged and vintage stuffs which you can put in your living room, not only as main furniture, but also as decoration as well. For sofa, one neutral color sofa will be the best choice. Add some throw pillows, also in neutral and solid color as well. Avoid using too much pattern and color. White can be the main color for your furniture. Vanity and shelves in white in vintage apartment furniture will deliver the bright look. Why is it important? Because in small space, you need white to give illusion of larger room. One round wooden white coffee table can be placed in front of sofa, while some shelves can be put opposite to them.
When it comes for flooring, sealed wooden floor is preferable in this case. Wooden rack or shelves for your collection is also a must. Put one huge carpet which may look a bit worn out and aged cover the floor. For the lighting, wooden texture light should be placed in the center of the ceiling. If you don’t have wooden lighting, it’s also OK with wooden tone or deep brown colored shading light.
No matter if it college apartment interior design or spacious interior design, if it’s vintage style, commonly they have one similar look. For curtain, always choose a heavy material which is long enough to cover up your window and let it hang till touch the floor. Choose also mounted lamps which have shades on the wall. Don’t forget to add a huge mirror with complicated carving in golden tone as frame in the center of your wall. Put candlestick on the table, completed with candles as well. Choose one side of your wall and hang some of your best pictures in wooden frame. Yes, you can fill the wall with framed old pictures. Don’t be afraid to show some of your antique collections on your open shelves.
