The actual definition of what classified as vintage, retro or collectible can vary from person to person, from dealer to dealer. Fortunately, there are a large group who feel the terms apply as follows: The term collectible can refer to an item of any age between 0 and 99 years, as once it reaches 100 years of age, it is an antique for an intents and purposes. A variety of items can be deemed collectible from mid century modern styled furniture to a movie figurine produced in the 1980s. Meanwhile, the term vintage refers to items that are typically less than 25 years of age. However, in some circles, vintage can also refer to items that have circled back into fashion, including those that are more or less than 25 years of age. The term can also be used to describe items from the 1960s into the late 1970s, making an official, wide-spread definition of the term a bit difficult. A number of home accessories from the 1960s to the 1970s are re-surging in popularity, including wall art such as Andy Warhol prints.
When you know what you want, youll need to set up a budget. Be sure to divide that budget up accordingly and have money for everything in that particular room. For example, in the living room youll need furniture, wall decor, table decor, throw pillows, floor rugs and other home accessories to complete the space. Bigger is better when it comes to choosing home accessories, so keep this in mind. Chances are, you dont want your space to look cluttered. By choosing a single large home accessory, such as a large hammered metal vase, rather than choosing several smaller home accessories, youll create a cleaner, less-cluttered look.
Before hanging any art on a wall, try different combinations of arrangements. Use painters tape and brown paper bags and keep rearranging the bits of paper on the wall until you have come up with a great picture arrangement. Always hang prints at eye level and use your hand in between pictures as a guide to space large and medium sized pictures. Mirrors are great to help create the illusion of space. By cleverly placing mirrors on an adjacent wall to a picture or something which is interesting in your room, will reflect the image and add a sense of space. For darker rooms, hang a decorative mirror near a window. The light will then bounce off the mirror into the room portraying more natural much-needed light back into the area.
