Guest Post from Arcadian Home - Vividly Vintage

It's no secret I have a love of interior decorating and inspiration. I love looking at blogs like Design*Sponge and Arcadian Home Blog (and Pinterest, of course!) for ideas. Today we have a fun guest post from Mari from Arcadian Home Blog and there are so many beautiful ideas here! Enjoy. 

Hi, all! It's Mari here from Arcadian Home Blog, a lovely place to find lots of decor inspirations. I'm so happy to be visiting For the Birds to share a post about charming vintage style. Vintage elements are seen in a myriad of forms, from Mid-Century buffet lamps to kitschy decorative objects and everything in between. Vintage style comes in such a wide range of looks, we often see qualifiers such as vintage modern, vintage chic, industrial vintage, retro vintage. My personal favorite is the phrase vividly vintage used to describe colorful vintage spaces. Today, I've brought along images of eight rooms that illustrate appealing vividly vintage style. We hope they will inspire your own interior projects. Please enjoy!

Vivid Vintage

A color palette of pink, purple and mauve is beautiful in this vintage dining room. Pops of white bring a great contrast to the space.

In this eclectic vintage dining room vivid table decor, lovely fresh flowers, brings deep color to the design. Pale molded plastic Eames chairs and charming landscapes add pretty softer hues.

A vividly vintage little dining space filled with morning light, and the kitschiest of kitschy found objects, has a happy lively vibe. A tulip table surrounded by traditional dining chairs all dressed up in leopard is the perfect spot for tea and conversation.

With formal architectural bones, this colorful living room is a charming mix of modern and traditional vintage furnishings and decorative accessories with contemporary artwork.

An attic bedroom turned amazing closet needs only a few vintage pieces, found objects, wall art and a red floral arrangement to give it a vividly vintage look.

A long red velvet sofa is the focal point of what is perhaps the most vivid of our eight vintage spaces. The aged wood flooring and exposed brick are amazing.

With lots of eclectic style, a neutral living room goes bold with colorful touches. A glass pendant light and vintage portrait add appealing Bohemian style to this chic design.

Just what every vintage kitchen needs: a cool SMEG refrigerator. This one in brilliant orange adds a vividly vintage vibe to an updated contemporary kitchen decorated with retro found objects.
