6 Vintage-Inspired Homes That Exude A Timeless Appeal

Love all things retro and old-school?

In this article, we showcase 6 vintage-inspired homes that exude a timeless appeal.

You know what they say… old is gold!

1. This Hipster-Looking Apartment

We love a home that’s got character – and that’s definitely the case for this apartment that’s part industrial, part retro.

Here, the raw finish of the walls goes perfectly with the old-timey decor, such as the desk fan and the upcycled signboard.

2. This Living Space That Gives Us Kopitiam Vibes

Want to recreate the look and feel of an old-school kopitiam? A round table + stools will do the trick.

Display some trinkets from the past (old pots and pans, biscuit tins, tingkat boxes), and it instantly feels nostalgic.

3. This Stylish Mid-Century Inspired Home

Mid-century furniture (characterised by clean lines, gentle curves, and organic shapes) are a great match with the vintage aesthetic.

To amp up the retro factor, pick bolder colours like yellow and green, instead of sticking to a neutral palette.

4. This Luxurious-Looking Home

If we had to distill the essence of this home into a single phrase, we’d go with “luxury meets vintage”.

This home is undeniably opulent, with its marble floors and chandeliers. The tufted sofa is also a focal point – while this style of sofa first became popular centuries ago, in the Victorian era, it’s still very much a classic today.

5. This Tasteful-Looking Retro Home

Too much antique or old furniture can easily make a room dated, but that’s not the case here.

The key lies in picking pieces that are slim and streamlined – you don’t want pieces that are too bulky, because it’ll make your home look stuffy and oppressive.

6. This Retro Yet Modern Home

Chinatown Modern Vintage ($40,000) by Honeycomb Design Studio

We love how this room is styled – while there are pieces that are undeniably retro (the mosaic tiles, the room divider), the room still has a contemporary, fun vibe to it.

It’s all about mixing it up – don’t be afraid to juxtapose vintage or antique furniture against more modern pieces.
