Recently I have been obsessing with the vintage furniture and the classy look of it (refer image 1). You can always give your existing old furniture a modern vintage look (refer image 2); but there are some options where you can buy pocket friendly vintage furniture and fabric and remake your home.

You can reuse the existing old furniture with dash of colours on the wall.
Within the vintage category, newer pieces, especially those dating from the 1950s to1980s, are generally considered Retro. The difference between Retro and Vintage is that vintage refers to the actual old construction or make, whilst retro refers to the old appearance.
If you are combining different pieces from different eras make sure there are not too many colours or textures or prints at one place. (Refer image 3).It will make the room look larger.

If you are going for the darker wood furniture then try and keep the floor plain and use pastel colours and soft prints on upholstery.
If you like retro vintage furniture with wooden grains in white wash (Refer image 4, 5) then you can use more colours as the furniture will act like canvas for your room. You can add more colours in cushions, rugs and on the wall.

With this retro furniture you can use a whole lot of different prints and colours in rugs, curtains, cushion covers and other upholstery. (Refer images 6, 7)
Nature prints & bohemian prints go hand in hand with retro furniture. Boho-chic prints and fabric with vintage furniture is a match made in heaven (see image 6, 7).
To make your space cooler than ever you can print on some of the furniture like lamp shades or drawer chests with vintage prints and little bit of green in the corner. (See images 8, 9)
If you are not buying vintage furniture then you can always give some of your existing furniture a vintage look with some creative hacks.
