ENDEARING KITSCH RECAPTURES THE CA­SUAL, CARE­FREE MOOD OF THE 1930s AND ’40s.

1. Run Wild

For­get try­ing to match or co­or­di­nate pat­terns or col­ors. Col­lect en­dear­ingly tacky kitsch—plas­tic hula girls, ce­ramic poo­dles, plas­ter gar­den gnomes—any­thing that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. Let your heart be your guide.

2. Don’t Go Solo

Never buy a vin­tage lamp if it doesn’t have its orig­i­nal shade. It’s nearly im­pos­si­ble to find a match. If the orig­i­nal is in bad shape, just re-cover it.

3. Paint on a New Hue

Unify old gesso frames that don’t match by spong­ing them with paint in the color of your choice. It hides im­per­fec­tions but lets the gold glim­mer through.

4. Add Some Shine

Cre­ate at­trac­tive ac­cents on mold­ings and fur­ni­ture with high-gloss la­tex paint. It goes on like warm but­ter­scotch and is pleas­antly eye­catch­ing.
