Material and texture

The interior should look as if it was designed several decades ago, and therefore it should really reflect the fashion and trends of the past decades. The most common vintage style in interior design is called “Romantic Soft” which includes items older than 30 years, but younger than 60 years. As the materials would have aged, the texture should be dry or freshly painted to maintain a rather outstanding look. Usually the furniture should not include junk, but real rare legacy pieces.
