Creating a vintage appearance in a modern home is an art form all of its own. Here, we take a look at the different rooms in the house and how you can master the craft of incorporating rustic wooden furniture into your home to bring this trend to life. 


Living room

From a simple freestanding floor lamp to a statement television unit, your living space is an ideal place to make your mark with a rustic wooden accessory. Using stand out pieces against a neutral background will create a unique and stylish look, it also means that accessories can be altered and changed to create a range of looks without the need for redecorating. Try smaller accessories such as picture frames or vases to complete the look. 


Known as the heart of the home, the kitchen is a great place to play around with trends and designs as this is where you're likely to spend the most time. As a space for entertaining, it's a chance to go all out and impress by using quirky space saving ideas and look good doing it. Incorporate a fitted wooden spice rack to your kitchen wall, like this example on Etsy to create a useful storage idea and unique wall feature. For more permanent structures, add some wooden shelving units to maximise space and create a rustic feel or for more temporary options, use wooden place mats, hanging quotes in vintage frames or a statement clock. 



A signature oak table makes for the perfect desk space for any professional looking to achieve a stylish yet practical environment in their home study. Pair this with quirky calendars and vintage pin boards to create a motivational space that allows for creativity and productivity. 


Both elegant and old school, these wicker-lined boxes at John Lewis can bring a subtle touch of rustic to your interior scheme. Create a nautical theme with driftwood accessories to continue the rustic feel or use modern storage solutions to align the modern and vintage themes. 



Whether it's a stylish fitted wardrobe, matching bedside tables or a classic, opulent dressing table, add a touch of rustic style to your bedroom to create a vintage throwback look. Ensure any furniture you choose creates a relaxed and chilled out environment where you can unwind.
