Celebrating the perennial interest in incorporating vintage flea-market finds into interior schemes, Style Me Vintage: Home is a feast of retro inspiration. With practical information on how to identify and source original vintage homewares, there is also plenty of inspiration on how to style your rooms according to your favoured decade, whether it be the 1920s or the 1970s. Without being restrictive, there's also plenty of advice on how to mix eras and incorporate vintage into contemporary schemes. This is a sourcebook of inspiration to all those hungry for nostalgic design. From ideas for display (fab sixties artwork, kitsch figurines, retro plates and crockery) to larger furniture finds (fifties sideboards, classic fabrics, reupholstered armchairs) see how vintage design can be made to work today.
