Give your home romantic touch all year round
WITH the Christmas and New Year celebrations now behind us, it is time to look forward to the next prominent date on the calendar: Valentine's Day.
Whether you love it or hate it, there is no escaping this time of year. However, it does not have to be all love hearts, boxes of chocolates and cringe-worthy cards, especially not when it comes to interiors.
Vintage design is elegant, feminine and draws on the past where every item looks as though it should tell its own story.
By taking inspiration from yesteryear, you can create a sense of warm nostalgia that will bring depth, meaning and comfort to a scheme. The key with this trend is to respect the reasons these designs were so popular the first time round. It is important to bring vintage into the 21st century without losing its charm.

Luckily, modern day design houses and even high street chains have taken an interest in vintage chic, paying tribute to this much-loved and never forgotten style by introducing vintage-inspired collections for everyday homeowners.
From floral prints and frills to antique finishes, vintage is all about creating a lavish environment that welcomes you with open arms.
If you've got the time and budget, you can invest in large, grand pieces such as arm chairs, chaise lounges and large furniture items. Many stores and designer outlets offer truly wonderful vintage pieces that will bring a sense of character to your home.
But if it is an authentic addition you are after, why not visit a vintage fair or trawl the local antique and charity shops for a one-off.
Simply introducing floral cushions and reupholstering your existing chairs with a vintage style fabric will give any room a fresh new look. This theme relies heavily on the accessories you include, so keep an eye out for vintage style mirrors and candelabras to help set the scene.
A vintage theme will give your home a romantic feel all year round.
