Just like with fashion, interior design trends always make a comeback, and sometimes they’re even better than the original. With transitional style being one of the most popular right now (mixing vintage pieces with modern touches), it’s easy to embrace vintage elements without having to completely renovate a space from top to bottom.
Dating back to ancient Egypt, no pattern is more nostalgic and iconic than the classic checkerboard. Today’s modern version can easily be installed as a DIY project, is visually interesting and completely versatile. A black and white checkerboard pattern paired with a sleek, modern bathtub and modern fixtures is the perfect way to combine old and new.
While freestanding clawfoot bathtubs have greatly evolved over the years–both in style and affordability—it has paved the way for the modern pedestal and deep soaking tubs. Redesigning your bathroom with a freestanding bathtub as the main focal point is a modern way to update the space without having to renovate everything.
Wallpaper & Paint
If completely redoing the floor or swapping out a major fixture, such as the bathtub, is out of your budget at the moment, consider grabbing a vintage paint color and giving the walls a fresh coat. Pale vintage blues and greens—even mustard yellow—are dominating in popularity at the moment. Another way to add vintage flair is with large, bright and ultra-bold vintage-inspired wallpaper.
