Many Americans dont know the true difference between "antique" and "vintage" home accessories and decor. Whether its furniture, wall art or a random knick-knack, not all home accessories can be classified as an "antique," even if it at an antique store, nor is everything vintage, or even retro, for that matter. Heres the low down on the differences between "antique," "vintage," "retro," or "collectible" home decor. Any item that is a minimum of 100 years of age is considered an "antique." This applies to furniture, clothing, home accessories, paintings, old farm equipment-you name it. If it at least 100 (but no, you great great aunt does not count,) then it an antique.
Before hanging any art on a wall, try different combinations of arrangements. Use painters tape and brown paper bags and keep rearranging the bits of paper on the wall until you have come up with a great picture arrangement. Always hang prints at eye level and use your hand in between pictures as a guide to space large and medium sized pictures. Mirrors are great to help create the illusion of space. By cleverly placing mirrors on an adjacent wall to a picture or something which is interesting in your room, will reflect the image and add a sense of space. For darker rooms, hang a decorative mirror near a window. The light will then bounce off the mirror into the room portraying more natural much-needed light back into the area.
Its true, by purchasing locally made or made in the U.S.A. products, youre cutting down on the amount of fossil fuels and other resources that are needed to transport these products from their country of origin and into the United States. That being said, it can be tricky to know exactly what to look for. Since the trend is growing, there are a plethora of items you can find that are made in the U.S.A. This includes furniture, light fixtures, various home accessories, clothing and so forth. Of course, as with any product (no matter where it hails from,) you need to take note of quality. For furniture, you may want to consider shaking the piece slightly to see how sturdy it is. If youre buying from an online retailer, you wont be able to do this. Instead, be sure to seek out customer reviews to ensure that the furniture youre purchasing is quality. If it isnt, youll see plenty of complaints to tell you otherwise.
