Vintage Modern

My friend Paris posted about this interior design website called Sproost. You can take a test that defines what your style is, and mine was right on! I have a deep passion for going to thrift stores, yard sales, etc. and finding treasures. About 95% of our apartment is made up of things I've found at these kinds of places. We even have furniture that people just left by the dump that I stole and gave makeovers to. I love anything with a history!

Vintage Modern

Flea Market, anyone? You know you are drawn to modern furniture and interiors, and yet you don't like a space that feels cold and sterile. And who could blame you? That's why Vintage Modern is so appealing to you. Though the backdrop of the room, the walls and windows, are many times white or monochromatic, the furniture and accessories have the color, shape and texture to bring the warmth into the space.

The great thing about Vintage Modern is ease of mixing different styles in the one space. You can have a new modular sofa mixed with a great pair of chairs that your grandmother purchased in the late 1950's. The new and old work appear as though they were destined for each other. Even if you don't have time for swap meets and garage sales, so many of the mid-century pieces were so great that they have been remade and mimicked year after year.
