Create a Vintage Look With Color

Create a Vintage Look With Color

To give your home an authentic vintage look, choosing the right color palette is important. As well, depending on the era your home was built, you may want to reflect that history by selecting paint colors, accessories and vintage art and decor in colors that accurately represent that time period.


Vintage style and color schemes can create a light, airy look with a touch of romance. Along with extensive use of white and off-white, accenting ornate architectural details with pops of bold, vivid color can create a striking and authentic vintage look.
