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.

Upcycle furniture

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!
