If I happened to be rich, I would buy a house and decorate it with elegant antique furniture and decors. It would serve as our vacation house because the house where my husband and I would live is modern. Yes, that´s right, my husband and I have different tastes when it comes to home decoration.
He likes his house to be absolutely modern while I like mine vintage with a hint of modern.
Did you see my dream bedroom design? Take a look at the beautiful antique bedroom furniture I´m day-dreaming.
Although I´m not rich, I´m still lucky to have a house with three independent floors. My husband and I live in the ground floor, my mother-in-law in the second floor, and the attic is vacant. The attic has a bedroom, a living room and a tiny restroom.
Last month, inspired by my cat, I decided to move my home office to the attic. It´s wonderful to have my own place, my own cave, which inspires me to be creative. As you can guess, I decorated it the way I wanted – vintage with the ambiance of modern.
You can read the entire story + see the pictures at my Happy Sis blog, I Moved My Home Office to the Attic.
Today´s post is inspired by my attic home office. Here are twelve gorgeous items, furniture and decors, that you would surely love if you´re an antique lover.
Remember that your place does not have to be entirely antique to invest on these pieces; you can use them as accents to a modern interior design. My flat, for example, has a modern look but I used some vintage jars and porcelains for display.
