The right materials 

Dark and warm woods are the basis for a vintage living room, but can be combined well with other materials and styles. Mainly natural materials do well in a vintage living room. Of course you don't want your living room to look old-fashioned, so feel free to add some more modern furniture. For example, you can add a touch of industrial with furniture with metal accents. Velvet is also a material that fits well in a vintage living room.

Choosing a color palette

There are plenty of color options to decorate your vintage living room with. Pastel shades fit well in a vintage interior, just like olive green, blue, mustard yellow, gray and earth tones. 

First consider carefully which period and style you want to go for, choose suitable colors and only then start decorating your vintage living room.

Furniture for a vintage living room

Furniture with a story. Furniture that has lived. Those are the kinds of furniture that suit a vintage living room. It is often furniture that has clear signs of use, scratches and faded colors, and that is exactly what makes vintage. They are often unique pieces, as they come from a time when furniture was not made in large numbers. Think of a velvet sofa, small side tables on narrow legs and furniture with graceful edges and rounded corners.
Beautiful vintage furniture can be difficult to find, but a visit to the thrift shop can be very beneficial. There are beautiful treasures to be found that can complement your interior wonderfully. And of course, if it looks too old, a lick of paint and you're good to go!
Old, second-hand decorationsIn terms of decorations, you can go for real old classics, such as a record player, typewriters or an old-fashioned radio. Again, the thrift shop is the place to go for vintage gems. You can also go here for decorations. Decorate with beautiful lighting, pillows and throws. If you don't want to make it look too old-fashioned, you can combine old and new, as said before. You can go in many directions with it! And last but not least, plants. Plants give your living room so much more atmosphere and this certainly fits well in a vintage interior!
