Not only is your home a place of refuge away from the hustle and bustle of life, but it should be a reflection of who you are, what you love about life, and how you see the world around you. Decor themes help to project your sense of style and the type of lifestyle you lead, and they can make home feel very special. Home trends seem to always be changing. What was once considered popular and hip, may now be considered outdated, making it hard to keep up with the trends. Having an outdated decor theme can make your home feel tired, old and boring, but luckily there are a lot of looks from years gone by that are coming back into the trending world of home decor. So if you love some of the vintage styles but aren’t sure what’s popular and what’s not, then we can help you there. Keep reading to see 10 vintage home trends that are in style right now.

1. Art-loaded walls

There was a time when hanging loads of art on your walls was really popular. It wasn’t uncommon to walk into a home and see a wall that was covered in pictures, from family photos to pieces of original art. Large clusters of pictures on a wall wasn’t considered to be overdone or cluttered, however, over time, this look began to die out and simplicity was more of the theme. Well, if you love showing off your family or have lots of art pieces you want displayed on your walls, the good news is that it’s a look that is coming back. It may be considered a vintage style from years back, but it’s rebounded, so get your favorite pictures out and start framing and hanging.

2. Brassy is classy

Brass is back, alas! For all those brass fans who thought brass had gone out of style, now you can start incorporating brass back into your home decor. Brass is one of those metals that is easy to work with and so many things are made from the metal that you can find just about anything in brass, from brass light pendants to chandeliers, tabletop decor pieces, lamps and more. So go ahead and break it back out because since 2016, brass is now a look that has trended back into the home.

3. Black and white themes

There was a time when it seemed like everywhere you went, black and white were the only two main core colors, it was so popular. Well, this is a look that many may consider to be vintage, but the truth is that it just stayed around and is still considered to be a chic way to decorate a room or rooms in your home. There is so much more you can do with these two prominent colors, and many people find the look to not only be fun, but oh so mod.

4. Over-sized furniture

While most people have moved toward scaling their furniture to fit smaller spaces, which is why so many furniture pieces have become more compact and on a smaller scale. However, despite many people getting rid of their large sofas and tables, many others have kept their large pieces of furniture with them year-after-year, maybe vowing to eventually downsize it, but never getting around to it. For those who have held onto those over-sized furnishings, you’re in luck. Now the look of large pieces of furnishings is back, and the look is a vintage trend that is working out for a lot of people who like the comfort of a large sofa, and the functionality of a large coffee table. So welcome back vintage look, in a big way.

5. Avocado green paired with gold

This was a popular 1970’s look that stuck around for a while and died off with the passage of time. Most people from that era remember this color combination and probably can recall the homes that were dedicated to them. The color combo is actually a very nice combination and can be used together in a number of ways, from avocado splashed walls paired with furnishings, window treatments, area rugs, and more, that display the gold tones. For those of you have always felt very behind the times with still having a living room that’s full of these two colors, don’t, because you waited it out and now it’s back. Years later, you are now considered to be “in the trending times” with your vintage decor theme.

6. Non-stainless steel appliances

Before stainless steel poured into homes as the most sought-after look for appliances, you often saw appliances in mustard yellow, cream tones and beige. After a while this look faded to black and white, but now the creams and beige tones in appliances have moved back into homes. Most major appliance manufacturers are creating their lines with the cream colors available too. They’re warm and welcoming and can make a kitchen feel brighter and airier in many cases, as opposed to the look of a colder stainless steel.

7. Shag is back

The 1970’s was a big era for the look of shag rugs. It seems like most everyone can recall at least one room with woolly shag somewhere in their home during the 70’s. You may not have a shag rug from that era anymore, but if you can still remember how good it felt to snuggle into sitting on the floor, or how soft it felt under your feet, well now you can relive that feeling because they’re popular again. Shag laid in smaller areas is the popular way to use the look today, as opposed to carpeting whole rooms, and color choices are more abundant to keep with the today’s trends, but the main fact is, they’re back, so get your groove on, and shag!

8. Colorful front doors are trending now

For decades there were two basic colors you might see on a front door and they were red or brown. The colorful doors had faded away to more subdue colors, but colorful front doors are back in style and you can get colorful again. If you always thought front doors lacked in luster with their dull hues and wished you could show your true colors, starting at your front door, now you can. You can check out the latest color trends for front doors and welcome your guests with a more vibrant front entry. Choose a sunny yellow, turquoise, purple, or other shade.

9. Dinette booths

Do you remember how the restaurant look of a booth at the table merged into the home? Me either, but it happened and it became a very popular look among homeowners. Eventually the booth fell flat and the chair took precedence over the long, wraparound booth at the dining table. For those with larger families and need more seating space, or for those who just love the feeling of sitting in a booth – for a restaurant experience every day, constructing one in your home is now considered to be a cool trend, so don’t be afraid to swap out those chairs for the bench booth look. It’s back.

10. Chandeliers

There was a big chandelier movement back in the 70’s. They could be found in many rooms in any house, however, due to space concerns, like with high ceiling homes, chandeliers were left out of home decor design and ceiling fans and simple lighting elements moved in. Today, chandeliers are making a comeback, and they are a sleek and retro, and can be a beautiful focal point to a room. You can choose from eye-catching designs, to a more minimalist design. Make your room pop again with a vintage looking chandelier and relive the chandelier movement days.

No matter what your favorite vintage style look is, you can find ideas to incorporate in your home. Take a look at the following picture gallery to get more ideas of vintage decor that is trending now.
