Like all things vintage but not sure how you can get the look at home? Be inspired by these ideas!
1) Use old fashioned grills as partitions
The minimalist master bedroom gets a touch of nostalgia with old-fashioned accents such as a recycled metal grille gate and lace drapes, which also serve as a screen for the walk-in wardrobe.

Accordion gates now stand in place of a solid wall that once zoned a bedroom from the stairway entrance. This grungy feature adds to the retro-inspired common area and kitchen.
2) Old items can be upcycled to serve a new purpose
Sewing machine legs, bought from a vintage shop, have been fitted to create a nostalgia-tinged table.
