chairinspireDecorating with vintage pieces can sometimes be a challenge. You want to incorporate a particular look, but you aren’t sure how to get it. Or you want to use a vintage piece – but you aren’t show how to use it.

We rounded up a few fabulous ideas from Pinterest for how to incorporate vintage chairs into your home. Here are our favorites:

1. Use different colors, sizes & styles of chairs at your dining room table.
We just love this look. It is eclectic but if the chairs are selected properly and with a creative eye, it creates an eye-popping look and an interesting focal point.

2. Reupholstering a piece that looks dated. 
Sometimes what makes a vintage piece look “old” or “outdated” is just the worn out fabric or no-longer-stylish print. Recovering or reupholstering a dated piece in a modern fabric gives it a fresh new look fit for any stylish home. We love a floral or stripe print fabric!

3. Fluffing up your piece with coordinating pillows. 
We have a whole blog post about how pillows can give a room new life, read it here.

4. Using a vintage armchair in an unexpected way. 
Like as a desk chair, or as an accent to to a display of wall art – especially if the colors coordinate.

We hope you found some inspiration from our ideas – for more photos of chairs we have in the store click here and for more inspiration on how to use them in your home, click here.

We are open Saturday 10am-6pm & Sunday 11am-5pm, we hope to see you this weekend!

Pillows are an inexpensive and easy way to change the look and feel of a room. We have a fabulous dealer who sells amazing custom designed and handmade pillows, when you are in the shop next time be sure to browse his selection. We wanted to share with you three easy ways to decorate with pillows – try them this weekend!

1. Add Color to a Neutral Room
If you have a neutral sofa and neutral painted walls adding a bunch of color coordinated pillows can totally change your space. By bringing color into the room using pillows and small accessories, it gives you the option to easily change your color scheme and look. We recommend using several shades of one or two colors, like the orange and pink pillows on the beige sofa above.

2. Coordinate Existing Pieces
Pictured above is a bright yellow bedside table and on the bed are two bright yellow pillows, one a pattern and one a solid. Pillows can really help you pull together color elements in a room and create a cohesive look.

3. Fill Empty Space with Pillows
Sometimes you might find an blank space in a room, not big enough for a piece of furniture but big enough that it feels empty. Stacked pillows are a great way to fill that space, you’ll see pictured above pillows stacked next to a fireplace. It warms up the space and gives it a nice texture.

These are just three easy ideas to get you inspired to decorate with pillows. For more inspiration, check out our Pinterest board. As always, we welcome you ideas in action – if you have a spot in your home you’ve decorated with pillows, we’d love to see it! Email it to us at info@evolution-home.com.
