The kitchen of this home needed to have character like the rest of this vintage home so designers added bright, bold colors and mixed shiny, smooth textures with vintage favorites. The bright blue backsplash was one of the flashy, glamorous pieces and by mixing that with more traditional cabinets, the space gets a touch of the old world and the new.
This elegant kitchen flows seamlessly into the rest of this updated 1940s home. The character in this kitchen, used by adding bright tones and mixing them with vintage inspired elements, perfectly fits the character of this renovated charmer.
A sleek black vanity is paired with a wall-mounted faucet for an urban bathroom design. A pair of small chandeliers flank the mirror, bringing a note of glamour to the space. Throughout the San Diego home, vintage advertisements are used, creating a juxtaposition between the contemporary design and retro artwork.
Built-in bookshelves deliver maximum functionality without sacrificing space. A brass pendant light and picture lights above the shelves contrast with the neutral elements, adding warmth and a feeling of vintage glam.
Perched on the large kitchen island, a vintage vase juxtaposes against the metallic shell trays. Pendant lights illuminate the space, while exposed beams create a rustic environment in the farmhouse kitchen.
One of the ways interior designers add sophistication and timelessness to rooms is by accessorizing with books. Since coffee table books can be pricey, an excellent way to use books as decoration without breaking the bank is to pair high-end books with vintage books found at flea markets, like is done on this table. To maximize an old book’s charm, remove its book jacket to expose the canvas, cloth or paper surface.
Glam accents, like a sunburst mirror and silk taffeta draperies, elevate the vintage finds in this transitional living space. A tight palette of blues, browns and creams ties together the disparate furnishings.
Designed by Emily Mackie of Inspired Interiors, this dining room features a blend of vintage aesthetic and elegance. Rounded, wood upholstered chairs and a dark wood dining table are grounded by a traditional rug, and a gold chandelier hangs above to add a touch of glam.
To make the blues in the space pop, designers added these cool pink and black ottomans. These vintage pieces help to brighten the space, while adding a little bit of girly glam, showcasing the homeowner's personality.
To make what was a juvenile, childish girl's room more appropriate for a growing tween, its walls were painted a deep shade of violet, album cover-inspired art was hung to create a focal point, vintage lighting was installed on the ceilings and the walls, and women's fashion fabrics were used in upholstered accents. Now the designer-caliber room is as appealing to the tween herself as it is to her young parents.
This upscale salon has a Midcentury Modern design that is girly, glamorous and vintage. The blush and cream palette makes the space feel soft and feminine, while the gold accents add a touch of glam to the rooms. Vintage details such as the white chandelier help to add personality to the space.
Every table setting needs a touch of the unexpected. For this rustic-chic table, I chose a vintage brass peacock, found for a steal at an estate sale, to complement the table's theme while adding a bit of golden glam.
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah filled this contemporary living room with vintage-inspired furniture and decor like these gorgeous gold nesting side tables. Accented with mid-century modern accessories, the room is reminiscent of glam '50 and '60s style.
Vintage finds combine with contemporary accents for a room that's modern yet lived in. Distressed leather chairs pair with fluffy faux fur throws and graphic-patterned pillows for a mix of old and new.

“I’ve always imagined spending a snow-filled Christmas in a cozy mountain cabin, so I decided to pretend that’s where we were hanging out when I created this tablescape,” says Katie Nathey of Mountain Modern Life.
“Most of the table decor came from shopping our home,” Nathey says, “such as the vintage Mason jars and candle holders.” The napkins were made out of leftover fabric, and she added liquid gold leaf to glam up thrifted glasses.
