Reuse, Refurbish, Combine Vintage with Contemporary

Old classic paintings with gilt frames sit alongside large bold contemporary artwork. Recycle, repair and reuse furniture and reupholster in contemporary geometric fabrics, and use a mixture of pattern and texture. More is now more, rather than less is more.

Accessorise a space to give it a new feel. Use contemporary coloured glass vases and bottles, patterned lampshades and if you don’t have your own heirlooms, source from an antiques shop rather than buying new, such as this stone bust.

Wallpaper is BACK! More on this in the next issue.
