The Aura of Vintage Homes  

By Arushi Sakhuja  
Thoughtfully curated design elements are what truly make a home, regardless of passing trends. While some people gravitate towards contemporary, modern homes and others prefer art nouveau, some are drawn to vintage designs. However, the beauty of vintage homes is that they are timeless and never go out of style. Yes, it may remind one of yesteryears, but it is not outdated.

Just like retro is returning to the runway, it has even seeped into the roots of interiors. There is a revival of retro styles from the ’60s and ’70s which are making a comeback. Some vintage styles have stood the test of time and there’s something about the elegance, characterful old-world charm that never really makes it old. Bold patterns, psychedelic colours, geometric shapes, spacious floorplans, naturally illuminating spaces, high ceilings, wooden accents, and chandeliers imbue the interior with an opulent, old-world flair. In a world filled with modern constructions, geometric lines and the lack of curvilinear opulence, vintage homes remain a timeless classic.

Years later, we saw an uptick in the popularity of this design trend. Vintage styles in the present day are synonymous with wooden furniture, botanical wallpapers, statement accents, antiques, geometric patterns, graphic art and mouldings, but with a revival in a new avatar. Think bold interiors and furniture, and home decor accessories, which embody comfort, beauty, and timelessness. While this new approach to classic interiors is more flexible than its traditional counterpart, it has the same elegance and charm.

Vintage homes continue to captivate and charm homeowners with their retro and classic aesthetics. These timeless trends add a touch of nostalgia and sophistication to any living space, making them popular choices for those seeking a sense of enduring style.   
Today, vintage design is an approach towards using antiques to give a home or room a sense of history while creating a new space by putting together age-old pieces in a modern aesthetic. Individuals often associate this trend with comfort, beauty and simplicity. Along with being functional, people want their homes to be uplifting and comforting. The rise in the popularity of vintage trends has also led to the revival of traditional craftsmanship and the reinventing of craft-based production to stay relevant.     
Vintage home trends   
Vintage homes can mean different things to different people. To narrow down the most popular categories, they may be broadly classified into mid-century modern styles characterized by clean lines, organic shapes, and minimalist forms, effortlessly blending functionality with elegance. The Victorian era aesthetic champions opulence, sophistication and grandeur. This trend uses elaborate chandeliers, intricately patterned wallpaper, and richly upholstered furniture. Another vintage trend that has re-emerged is terrazzo which adds a touch of retro charm to floors and countertops. Not to skip Art Deco influences on contemporary designs and pastel hues, reminiscent of the 1950s and 1960s, have also stood the test of time.
