Modern vintage 

This term appeared only few years ago and has already become quite popular everywhere in the world. In fact, it means mixing old with modern. Sometimes unexpectedly good trendy combinations may come up with a little bit of mixing experimentation. Who knows, maybe your grandfather's antique clock will be in the limelight in your modern sitting room?

Change the color and material

It may really happen that a faded color is the thing which doesn't let you include a vintage object into your room. Actually, it is the easiest way to make old furniture look modern. Try to choose carefully a new trendy color. One more way is to change the main material of a treasured sofa or an armchair. However, you can have it done from a professional workshop. Don’t be scared to pick bright stylish shades, floral and striped patterns, and unusual brand-new fabrics to make it look and feel cozy.

 The right balance

Already existing objects in the room should be in proper balance with inherited art and furniture. A single antique mirror or cupboard will look gorgeous when it is surrounded by contemporary furniture. It is advisable to keep only one vintage piece in each room decorating it with bright clothes, plants or even flowers.

If you are a lucky one who inherited treasured old ceramics, silver plates, paintings, mirrors or clocks, don’t get discouraged. Do your best mixing vintage objects with contemporary ones and exploring new color and textile combinations.
