Reclaimed Antique doors from Havelis in India used as wall sculptures express individuality and uniqueness as well as provide grounding energies. End Tables and chests created from old windows with brass work, bookcases using arched door frames and eclectic carvings, the old woods and rustic patina give the old farmhouse character.
Use vintage patchwork tribal tapestries and authentic handloom throws, abstract mandala and midcentury printed wall hangings, transform a wall without spending too much money. Accent walls add a lot of character and are easy and fun. Create a dressed-up wall with vintage arched windows that carry the tribal tapestry behind it. Rustic woods, antique barn doors, vintage textiles carry the old-world charm. Distressed woods mixed with iron and brass gives the mid-century effect, as well as bringing in a little farmhouse chic. Industrial look is the biggest trend, showcasing an edgy warehouse look with raw unfinished wood and metal surfaces.
Whitewashed cabinets, soft neutrals and cooler distressed blue consoles influenced by Scandinavian decor take on a new meaning. Chakra carved consoles, floral carved armoires studded with brass and iron carry the story from the living room to the bedroom. Bold carved art on accent walls create a focal point, personalized old vintage finds and objects that can’t be found anywhere, creating headboards from old Indian doors, a coffee table from reclaimed corbels that belonged to a Haveli, the eclectic creativity is what the millennial is known for.
Comfortably classy bigger, deeper chai tables with sari toss pillows strewn across the floor, a great place to invite friends and watch TV, millennials are collectors of unique Art as well.
