One corner of this home's living room was turned into an attractive dining area with the addition of a white tulip table and chairs in bold black. Using not just one, but two walls to make a gallery of vintage art and photographs helps define and enclose the space.
Call it a mirrored mirror -- this mirror within a double frame of mirrored tiles edged in wood reflects nicely on an artistic lamp with rectangular white shade on a marble-topped vintage wood credenza. A striped throw, in colors to match the wall art, in a woven basket puts coziness at easy access.
Modern art flanks the TV and rests atop a custom white oak console by Honea Woodworks in this casual family room. Throughout the space, wood accents balance cool white walls and concrete floors. The adjoining dining room features the homeowners’ collection of vintage '60s furniture.
One of the most important factors in giving a room personality is the proper selection of art. This doesn’t require spending a lot on gallery works, but rather a keen eye. This gallery grouping was made by searching local flea markets and vintage stores for a mix of colorful and neutral pieces ranging in shape, size and subject matter. After spacing them out on the floor, the collection was hung on the wall with a consistent amount of space left between each piece.
An orange marble coffee table is the centerpiece of this bright sitting area. Vintage car-themed art, a brightly striped throw, and colorful pillows stand out against a brown tweed sofa, hardwood floors and white walls.
Inexpensive painted trays, which were popular in the 1950s and 1960s and are still made today, can bring a farmhouse motif to a kitchen, breakfast nook or adjacent area. Small silhouettes often are bargain-priced at vintage and antiques shops, or you can make your own by printing silhouette-style clip art and placing it in small wooden frames.

The black accent wall and pastel wall art provide the perfect backdrop for this vintage gold bar cart display. Designer Notes: "My bar cart was super easy to style.

"It's the place where I stock my favorite mixers and showcase my vintage glasses and fancy plates. Fresh flowers are a must to add beautiful aroma and color. The finishing touch for me is the painting above. It's like the cherry to my bar-cart cocktail."
