This kitchen features a small office area and playful dining nook for additional functionality. Traditional walnut cabinetry, a classic wood dining table and a vintage-style light fixture combine with contemporary artwork and a sleek orange banquette for a transitional look.
Part of this kitchen's visual interest comes from its layering of different woods: a dark wood floor and an island finished with oak. Over the island, an unusual vintage pendant light with a brass stripe around its middle is another eye catcher.
As seen on HGTV’s Fixer Upper, this casual dining area is furnished with a rustic wooden dining table with a metal top and vintage-style light blue metal chairs. New hardwood flooring, fresh paint and a modern light fixture add a contemporary touch to the space.
This beautifully-restored farmhouse kitchen mixes vintage style with elegant design. Green cabinets with black pulls give the space a pop of color, with a gas range and custom-made shiplap range hood above. Overhead storage features windows that let in lots of natural light, with vintage globe lights creating a classic, warm feel.
Horns and skulls may not seem like holiday decor, but with the addition of vintage colored lights, these staples of masculine decor can take on a playful, urban vibe. Consider hanging the fixtures near an entrance, wrapping them with a single strands of lights, then using a cloth-wrapped extension cord to add vintage charm.
A bracket portico designed by Atlanta Decking and Fence, and a vintage-looking light fixture add rustic Craftsman charm to this bungalow's curb appeal throughout the year. Hunter green paint is used for the shutters and portico. The homeowners decorated with small trees in containers holding red and gold ornaments and a festive ball wreath.
This living room features a classic craft front door and arch hallway door leading into the connected dining room. A stylish gray paint fits the soft, neutral color scheme creating a bright and inviting room. Yellow tulips add pops of life and color. Vintage country light fixtures mounted on the wall add a warm glow and decorative detail.
A honed granite countertop provides functional seating at the kitchen island in this narrow kitchen. Painted faux-antiqued cabinetry brings a bit of rusticity to the overall refined and spacious feel. Repurposed bricks create a façade on the accent wall while over-scaled subway tile with dark grout is used above Calcutta marble countertops. Vintage industrial lights hang over the island adding drama and whimsy.
Reinvent empty frames as illuminated sculptures with the addition of colored lights. For indoor use, standard vintage-style lights can be used to wrap wall-hung frames, placed near outlets. To help disguise extension cords, consider grouping several frames vertically, tucking the cord behind each frame, then into outlets near the bottom of the wall. For outdoor use, such as a repurposed wreath alternative placed on a front door, it's best to use battery-operated lights.
To give the homeowners a secondary dining area, designers added a small kitchen table to the end of the island. Designers used the chairs the homeowners had already and mixed them with funky lighting and a vintage buffet that was refinished in a royal blue to add a pop of color to the space.
