Decorate Your Home With A Chic Vintage Feel

I love vintage. I may say that too much. Oh well, it's true. I'm honestly in love with it to be exact. If I could decorate every room in my home with vintage items I would. Well, all of my rooms have vintage items, but I would love for each one to be completely vintage one day. These beautiful items from some great Etsy sellers will add charm and character to any home. Give your home the cottage style you've always dreamed of with these lovely vintage items.

This is a very charming and beautiful vintage glass door knob that will add instant chic to any home. This would perfect on a bathroom door. I actually bought one that I'm going to use on my white screen door. This can be found in the Etsy shop of BellaDays.

I love vintage linens. They add so much charm to a dresser, bed, or end table. This delicately embroidered dresser scarf from the Etsy shop of RedHenStudios is a must have. Draped over a lovely white dresser this would give your home the perfect touch of cottage style.

Everyone needs a piece of Fenton in their home. I'm very serious. Fenton has produced some of the loveliest and most elegant pieces of glass that I have ever seen. This Fenton daisy and button pattern candy dish from the Etsy shop of AntiqueCellar will add the perfect bit of charm to your home.

If your home doesn't have atleast one piece of white furniture, it needs it. White furniture is less "heavy" than other pieces and will always give your home a cottage feel. I actually have an entire room (my studio) which is done in light blue walls and all white furniture. The shabby glass knobs give this perfectly distressed table it's perfect touch. Find this and other lovelies in the Etsy shop of PerlineDesigns.

Everyone who knows me, knows I'm a sucker for milk glass and hobnail. Which is why I love these vintage white milk glass and hobnail candle holders. Paired with light blue or pink topiary candles these would be so shabby chic. At only $10 this is a steal from the Etsy shop of rosecottageemporium.

Your kitchen needs vintage love too. If you have glass front cabinets you need these. Another beautiful Fenton item indeed. These lovely pink Fenton hobnail sherbert cups scream girlie girl. What better to serve your best girl friends in than these perfect sherberts? Find these and more vintage items in the Etsy shop of jenscloset. Jen has taste, huh?

Isn't this bedspread absolutely gorgeous? Not only is it gorgeous, but it's in excellent condition. It's chennile polka dots give such a cottage chic feel. With just the right amount of pinks and blues this kneedletufted bedspread should be on the top of your cottage style wish list. From the Etsy shop of catnapcottage, this is one of the loveliest (if not THE loveliest) vintage bedspreads on Etsy. Even better, she has 2 available!

If your wanting a vintage or cottage feel in your home, but don't have tons of money to spend check out your local thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, as well as antique stores. Most of my vintage items have come from local thrift stores and most antique stores always have a clearance section and will sometimes take offers. Don't be shy about asking if they will take less, most likely they will and you will have some extra change in your pocket!
