How does one revive a vintage style in a way that caters to present-day sensibilities? The trick is to find the balance in an eclectic mix of the modern and the golden all-timers, for a look that is as lovely as it is comfortable. An older, more traditional look doesn’t have to mean too over the top. Just combine a few vintage or vintage-inspired pieces with newer and modern accessories or furniture.

Elegant long-drawn curtains sweeping the floor or old sofas upholstered in an intricately patterned fabric can also be used. The idea is to keep the romance alive with pretty molded tables and chairs. Textures have precedence with time-treasured favorites such as velvet and satin.
