Antique all the way
Posted on December 08,2017 | By admin2
If you’ve grown up in your ancestral home, then you would carry lots of memories with you. And not just about the people of the situations, but also of the many things that adorn your home. That ancient mantelpiece or the large wooden chest of drawers, bureaus and cabinets, ornate mirrors, decorated headboards and bedposts, and so on. Not to forget the linen and furnishing that go with them. And when you move into apartments or villas later on in life, you’d want to have some of those with you, too.
Contrasting with today’s minimalist white approach is the ethnic home décor. It never goes out of fashion. You just need a few days of planning and organisation to get it right. And, of course, you can keep adding pieces as years go by.
Even colours have a large influence on the feel of a home. Browns and reds, beiges and maroons, all earthy shades… they add to the beauty of the space. Create a calm and soothing space that reminds you of bygone years that you now miss.
Look for pieces of antique furniture and artefacts when you travel. You might find something that pleases your eye and also looks good in your home. Pick up velvets and brocades and team them up with textures back in the house.
Clocks, bookshelves, desks and armchairs seem to be usual favourites. Lamp shades and wall hangings also top the list. Ceramics and vases that have been in the family are great options.
If there’s a historic piece of art in your home, place it aptly keeping in mind the walls, background colours, cushions and tables in the room. If it’s a storage unit, you can place it in the bedroom, living space or in the lounge.
Children’s rooms and play areas can be done up, too. Give a classic touch by having handcrafted fabrics, maybe something passed down from your parents and grandparents. Balconies and terrace gardens can have quaint pots, fountains and other relevant accessories.
Wall textures are often overlooked. But they are one of the first things to be noticed when someone enters your house. Dress up the wall with patterns and motifs that go with the general theme. Use paintings and artwork wisely across rooms. A beautiful space is a happy space!
