In this Swedish home, the home owner has a passion for vintage, and it all ties together in a simple white scheme with touches of browns. The top photo of the entryway shows a pealing console table with vintage luggage on the shelves. It's dressed up with a chandelier and elaborate wall sconces.
The dining area includes a painted farm house table, and industrial chairs. While the living room uses a vintage bench as a coffee table and a wonderful old cabinet for display and storage.
If we start with the entryway, this primitive wood sorting table would make a wonderful console table. This sold at a Copake Auction in Copake, NY for $80 off an auction estimate of $40 - $60. This is painted a chic gray, and measures 60 inches wide.
I love this vintage metal medicine cabinet. This would be a terrific piece of furniture in the living room, used for storage and display. It has lots of drawers, a shelf, and three drop front doors. This is circa 1900, and sold at a Kamelot Auction in Philadelphia, PA for $850.
I love the rustic look, and with just a little courage you can have a chic home for not too much cash. Think about adding something glamorous for contrast, like an elaborate chandelier or a pair of sconces.
