In the bright and colourful home of interior stylist Jenny Branson, vintage furniture, Chintz fabrics and heirloom finds live in a curated & collected way to create what I qualify as the perfect vintage modern home.
I love her take on mixing vintage and new: ” To fill a modern home with purely modern furniture just feels lazy to me, just as the vintage and antique furniture of the past might not provide the storage and functionality we demand in our lives today. Modern pieces can be wonderfully dramatic in period properties. Equally vintage items can add character and interest to modern new-builds. The key is in the mix. Adapt your old items to modern life – a glass display cabinet as kitchen storage, vintage chairs as bedside tables, wing-backed chairs re-upholstered in modern fabrics – and make sure you only invest in new pieces that work with your lifestyle.” – Jenny Branson.
