Per the calendar gurus, July 12th has been declared the official day to celebrate simplicity. However when it comes to vintage, the Vintage Unscripted team believes every day is cause to revel in the simple side of design.
It’s 1990. You’re watching TV and you find yourself at the intersection of surreal and plaid. And so many characters and so many subplots that you needed a diagram to keep up with the twists and turns. Yup. Twin Peaks, iconic serial drama. It’s back. Starting tonight on Showtime, 18 new episodes returning us to the mysterious Pacific Northwest town 25 years after Laura Palmer was murdered. Written and executive produced by David Lynch and Mark Frost? Yup. Returning cast members? Yup. Get the look? Yes please.
Want to decorate your home with things you won’t find in the mall? Looking for something fun to add to an outfit that will make you stand out in the crowd? The solution is simple: THINK VINTAGE.
And the best news is you don’t have to make the change in either your home or your wardrobe over night. You can do it in a subtle way over time and within your budget. Before you know it, your style will be the talk of the town.
Add “unique” to your style with vintage accessories like these found for you by the Vintage Unscripted team:
Hop to it! It’s almost Easter! Time to dress up your front porch, steps, or patio with a touch of Spring!
Here’s a quick round-up of some clever ideas for decorating your entry way for Easter.
Grab a vintage basket or two, fill with live moss or floral moss, then add eggs. You could use colorful plastic eggs, as shown here, or spray paint the plastic eggs to match your color scheme (metallic paint like gold, silver, and copper would look very posh)! If you have an old piece of vintage barn wood, use a piece of chalk and create your own “Fresh Eggs” sign.
Galvanized buckets and pails make a perfect planter for Spring flowers! Fill with tulips, daffodils or other flowers for a bright Spring-time look. Tuck a rabbit figurine into the bucket among the flowers for an extra special touch. Attach a sign to the bucket and you have a welcome display!
Vintage Rubber Boots
Find a pair of vintage rain boots and turn them into planters or vases for your front porch. A bouquet of forsythia will brighten any entry way! Position your boot vases near several old wood pails or baskets filled with Easter eggs or more flowers, such as tulips, and a rabbit figurine or two for a fun Easter look.
Keep your eye open for vintage figurines such as rabbits, chicks, and birds – they are perfect for tucking into baskets filled with flowers and Easter eggs. If you have a large rabbit statue or figurine, set it on a bench on your front porch or even on a step leading up to your front door – it’s sure to put a smile on the faces of all who visit you at Easter!
