More is always more!
Vintage-style evokes images of an endless treasure trove full of surprises and this could influence the way you decorate your space. Take inspiration from this maximalist bathroom scheme, which incorporates retro furniture, distressed walls and a gorgeous pink roll top bath. Choose your accessories carefully and consider how they make you feel within a space.
The nature of vintage is that it existed in the past, therefore there can be an element of shabbiness to your vintage-inspired scheme. Start from the ground up and opt for a distressed rug, which are super on-trend right now, or if you're lucky enough to have original floorboards, these would be the perfect base for your look.

Take pleasure in hunting for second-hand furniture in thrift shops and take the time to upcycle it yourself. Not only will your furniture be truly vintage but you can design your piece to suit you and your home. A great trick is to paint your project first, let it dry and then go in with sandpaper to distress the corners.
Make it your own!
Don't forget to make your vintage scheme your own. At the heart of vintage décor is personalisation and bringing together pieces from the past that you love. There are no guidelines or set shopping list in order to achieve this, so let your imagination run wild to put together an inspiring eclectic room.
