From luxe to homespun, antique decorating can come in many forms. Check out these three ways to decorate using antiqued/distressed elements:
Walls that look as if they’ve been around for years have vintage charm to them. Recreate this room with a distressed stone slab wallpaper and contrast it with luxurious fabrics and patterns like silk, velvet, and paisley. Here, the upholstered headboard and pillows create softness that balance out the shabby-chic walls.
Warm & Cozy Cottage Nook
Create a warm and cozy nook for reading with trompe l-oeil distressed brick wallpaper in an off-white hue and layer upon layer of plaid fabric. Top off the look with an antique bench and a few personal mementos for provincial allure.
Antiqued or distressed walls can add warmth to an industrial space that has angular lines. Mix old and new/soft and hard together with antique dining chairs covered in a flocked damask fabric and satin drapes.
