One of our favorite ways to make over our home decor is by incorporating vintage pieces into a modern design scheme. We’re sharing our favorite looks from gorgeous spaces that used vintage decor and nailed it. Scroll on for all the inspo you need to keep your home unique and fresh.

Drawer Dresser

1. Dresser: Take it back to the ’60s with this dresser. The best thing about this piece is that it has room for more eclectic pieces. Decorate it with vases and lamps for some extra pizzaz. (via Trendey)

Wooden Crates

Desk

6. Desk: If you’re hunting for a new desk, a vintage one can easily upgrade the look of your space. It’s not only functional, but eye-catching too. (via Vintage Revivals)
