This small living room has great shabby chic vintage style. The coffee table is a great reuse of a common flea market find. Vintage signage adds graphic interest.

Bedroom Lighting

Natural linen cloth is used as casual slipcovers for wingback chairs in this charming vintage living room. Large science charts from Belgium create a big impact by filling up the wall space. The beige shaded light fixture was also a nice added touch to illuminate the large Belgium science charts.

Vintage toys are a delightful accent in a vintage style kids' room. The collection of Steiff toys on the white painted armoire add so much charm to this simple room.

Ceiling Light

This small kitchen, lit by a single retro ceiling light, is big on vintage style. The open shelves display a collection of bowls. A vintage table replaces an island as an additional work surface.

This combination living room and dining room pop with pink accents. Pink is used to unite the two different functions that share this small space. Love the pink dining room chairs.

A small desk can be the basis for a home office no matter the room it occupies. Vintage accessories, like a rotary princess phone, and a vintage floral print fill the small space with vintage style.

Vintage fabrics decorate this small eat in area of a kitchen. The vintage cottons add a riot of pattern and color to the small space.

This is a lovely vintage bathroom. Love the vintage paper wallpaper alongside the rich wood of the twin vanities and the simple wall sconces above the mirrors. Classic white subway tiles complete the vintage look.
