Vin­tage charm

Pretty pas­tels and flo­ral fab­rics cre­ate a com­fort­ing feel

Style at Home (UK) - - Contents -

Be in­spired by Sue’s char­ac­ter­ful vin­tage look and steal some ideas to try your­self. Much of the back­ground colour in her cosy cot­tage has been kept pale and muted in soft shades of cream, ivory and pale grey.

An­other of Sue’s clever tricks is to bring in colour and pat­tern us­ing cheery fab­rics, soft fur­nish­ings, art­work and ac­ces­sories, teamed with colour­ful painted fur­ni­ture and quirky up­cy­cled finds. Com­bined with the rus­tic wood floor­boards (dark wood would look over­whelm­ing) the ef­fect is light and rest­ful.
