Interior design isn’t just about creating a home design by following the latest trends. It’s about what you really love and what suits your home. This is especially true if you have an older home.

Here’s what you can do to touch-up your old home and bring out its best features.

Celebrate stained glass

If you’re lucky have beautiful stained glass windows, paint your walls white to let them act as art and color.

Use in-window shade

One characteristic of older homes that’s really unique is its vintage trim. In-window shades, as opposed to hanging drapes, are an excellent way to leave vintage window trim exposed.

Use drapery to conceal awkward windows

Older homes often have unusual window placings. A full wall of drapery is a perfect solution for this. It subtly cleans up the look of the room without blocking the light altogether.

Combine vintage and trendy designs

Using vintage set pieces in a living room, combined with a large flat screen TV, a computer and a plush sofa is a good combination that will give your home a unique character.
