Welcome back for another post in my “how to” home improvement and vintage style series! Today I am going to be sharing how to add historic charm and character to your home. There are some easy ways to transform your entire home, even if it is brand new. I personally love historic homes, and I am not sure I would ever want to live in a newer home. Others may love the look and charm of historic homes, but not the leaky pipes, drafty windows and creaky floor boards! Of course all of these things can be repaired but sometimes it is just more cost effective to buy a newer home. That doesn’t mean your home has to look modern. *This post contains affiliate links.

Hello everyone! As promised I am working on bringing my readers more posts on vintage decorating style. Vintage decor is more popular than ever, and it can be incorporated into your home in so many easy ways. Even if your house is modern, vintage elements can still be worked in to add some cozy charm. Vintage decor and collectibles are great for making your house have a unique feel, and for giving it lots of character. Many vintage items evoke the countryside, and the farmhouse or cottage look, which so many people love. There is just something so homey and welcoming when we are surrounded by the timeworn items of yesteryear. *This post contains affiliate links.

Recently I was going through my blog and thinking of new ideas for exciting posts for 2018, and I noticed that I didn’t have very many posts in my Vintage Style category last year. Because vintage decor is my forte, I decided to really concentrate on bringing my readers more posts pertaining to vintage style, and also expanding the category to include posts on vintage decor from eras that I may not personally use in my home, but appreciate for the historic value. This year I have challenged myself as a decorator to begin to broaden my decor horizons to include other types of popular styles such as Hygge and modern Boho Chic which is all the rage. *This post contains affiliate links.
While embracing trendy modern design may sound contradictory coming from someone who is vintage fanatic, many modern styles essentially are based on mid-century, 1960’s “Mod” or 1970’s Boho (Bohemian style) decor, and those styles often reflect earlier time periods as well. Even those of us who prefer shabby chic and French Country styles can incorporate some 1960’s junkin’ finds which can translate into a modern boho chic look for an updated vintage style.
