Vintage inspiration—it’s a sweet “new” take on romantic decor! Deep red may be the ultimate valentine color, but there’s no reason you can’t take a softer approach: think old-fashioned postcards with faded sentiments, nib-tipped ink pens, or dangling lockets encasing sepia photographs. Opt for off-white and ivory over stark white; then add highlights with soft pink and purple or antique gold. Decorate with vintage home decor featuring rose clusters, scrolling ribbon, and heritage-style lace.

Make the powder room feel like a place for primping and preening with a shapely wall shelf and blossom-embellished vanity accessories. Play up the vintage ambience with faceted glass perfume bottles, an antique jewelry box, a bud vase, and a hand-shaped display form to hold rings.
Give a parlor-like atmosphere to your favorite sitting space with a hurricane lamp and pastel canvases depicting heart topiaries. Let the afternoon sunbeams dance across all the vintage accessories you choose to display—a letter opener, lace curtains, crocheted pillows, or a lady figurine.
Serve up those dishes that have been passed down through the years; whether you use your most-loved dinnerware or those pieces reserved for special occasions, lace table linens will make it an elegant affair. Hang a mirror collage (with a heart mirror!) above a buffet table to add dimension.
Whether your style is all-out retro or transitional with touches of the past, mid-century home decor is for you! According to Architectural Digest, the movement blossomed from early 20th century Modernism; characteristics of mid-century decor include simplicity of design, organic shapes, and emphasis on function.
You might be wondering how to incorporate this style into your home. Here are a few suggestions:
- Display an abstract metal wall sculpture with rounded, mod shapes.
- Swap out traditional magazine racks or accent tables for sleeker styles.

Is your home decor looking lackluster—or simply missing that je ne sais quoi? Perhaps what it needs is a marriage of modern and vintage panache. The Art Deco style is the cat’s meow! Popular in the 1920s and ‘30s, this aesthetic remains one of the most appealing styles in architecture and home decor. Bold color duos like black and gold and clean geometric lines reflect the Art Deco sensibility. Stark, repeating motifs of triangles and rays also hark back to the period.
If you yearn for a more romantic look, select home decor with intricate details, swirling curves, and ornamental beauty. These shapely pieces will lend an Art Nouveau quality to your decor.

This look is all about peacock feathers! A jeweled stained glass lamp steals the spotlight, while feather-patterned sheer valances and table linens provide a cool-toned backdrop. Glitzy peacock canvas art shimmers from the wall.
These peacocks will love to rest on your table – while dressing it up, of course. Intricate cutwork and embroidery make this topper stunning on its own, but you can also enhance it with a decorative peacock centerpiece and swirled acanthus orbs.
A proud peacock waits from this canvas for your arrival. A resplendent entryway is as simple as a captivating canvas, mirrored table, mosaic glass accessories, and Old World-style wall accents.
Peacock decor will bring out the regal quality of your favorite bedding. A grand peacock presides over the room from the wall. A peacock rug festoons the area underfoot. Top off your nightstand or side table with a peacock lamp, figurine, or even candleholders.

Let a flower garden bloom on your wall! A floral wall art collage is perfect for large wall spaces like the area above the sofa, and the look is perfectly customizable. “Collect” a bouquet of metal wall art blossoms in your favorite hues, and display them however you like on a wall.
In both looks below, we chose a 26” dia. mirrored flower as the focal point, then arranged other metal flowers around it. For a little extra glamour, we selected a couple flowers with gem accents.
The first look is perfect for spring; a pretty array of pinks, purples, and blues are softly complemented by ivory and aqua. An openwork console table, stained glass lamp, petal pillow, and floral canvas complete the lovely arrangement.

The second look is wonderfully transitional, reflecting both Old World and modern styles. Metallic tones blend beautifully with cream capiz shell. We placed a storage cabinet and geometric candleholders beneath the wall art display, but the decorating possibilities are endless.

The color experts at Pantone have unveiled the Color of the Year for 2019: Living Coral! This cheery, vivid coral has a golden undertone, making it both joyful and comforting. According to Pantone, Living Coral reflects optimism and playful expression.
How will you infuse your home with the color coral? Naturally, coral can be used to punch up any coastal decorating aesthetic, and it will certainly pop among cool blues and whitewashed hues. If you’re looking forward to spring, seek out floral and butterfly decor in coral tones. Of course, you needn’t adhere to a decorating theme; decorative pillows in coral can provide that desired energizing effect, and if you’re feeling especially bold, let coral curtains amp up a neglected window.
