Finding the perfect color scheme for a vintage home is so tricky! You don't want your pad to look like a time capsule (Or do you? I don't. But I can see the appeal, I suppose.), but you definitely want to honor the style of the house. I've been rounding up color inspiration from vintage magazines and ads to get some ideas for our home, because we have quite a bit of tacky color to cover up! This time I'm thinking about some earthy color schemes. I think any of these would work well in our modern age, don't you? Which one's your favorite? I think I like the sunny one best (two images down), but just don't know if I have the guts to go that bright in our house. Ah, decisions, decisions!
