INCORPORATING VINTAGE PATTERNS INTO THE DESIGN
Vintage is in the air y’all! I mean, I guess it kind of always is here at MegMade – but with all the new 2020 aesthetics, vintage is so IN! And it’s not just about the idea of vintage as a trend, it’s all about the mix of classic, traditional and modern all in one – and what better way to incorporate that than adding some vintage patterns? With the longer-lasting furniture, and the well-made pieces now being favored over the trendy, we need to pick some patterns that will look great and last along with it! Today, we’re showing you some of our fav patterns that you just need to try to incorporate into your space.
The funny thing about patterns is that you don’t even realize they have a name! One amazing vintage pattern that you can incorporate into your space is that of Chintz! Chintz takes floral elements and other shapes and patterns within, and make one complete pattern. Indian inspired, this pattern is so elegant but can be the perfect thing to complement the modern elements that are in a lot of spaces nowadays!
Argyle screams the 70s, and you will understand why! Going in with usually two or more bright colors, the pattern mixes overlapping diamonds, usually of different colors, to create this dimensional pattern and movement!
Chinoiserie is a Chinese inspired pattern, but with a European flair. Featuring patterns of many Chinese flowers, and architects, this pattern mixes the best of both cultures creating a very romantic, yet fantasy-style creation!
Inspired by the Greek culture, this continuous lined repetitive pattern is usually shaped into a square and used often in borders and textiles!
Paisley is definitely one of my favorite patterns, that comes back often throughout the years. Usually seen on the typical bandana, paisley mixes floral with the tear-drop shaped, with an upward curve at the end!
This pattern screams tile! Asymmetrical pattern, including 4 half circles on each of the corners, is quatrefoil! Meaning good luck and used in Christian architect, it also symbolizes the four ends of the Earth, much like the compass!
Patchwork is a vintage design, that almost can come from every decade, and can kind of incorporate any type of pattern. I feel that patchwork simply changes with time, and can be updated to match today’s trend! But, it also doesn’t have to be so updated either. When you think patchwork, think color! Try to go for a color design that can complement the space – and it doesn’t have to be overwhelming for it to be bold! Patchwork is bold in and of itself, and no matter what will definitely bring a vintage, cozy room to the space.
