The 10 vintage inspirations of Mélanie

The 10 vintage inspirations of Mélanie

Falling in love with old things, adoring bargain hunting, discovering a rare pearl, furniture and vintage objects give us real little pleasures every day. And since the 50s / 60s decided to be trendy again in our contemporary interiors, we do not hesitate to invite them into each room of the house. To help you, you too to adopt it, I deliver you through 10 inspirations, my favorite decoration addresses, my favorite atmospheres and my essential darling objects.

A place: Slize


Rose Cadillac Indus' style and kitsch atmosphere, here is the winning recipe from the Slize meter pizzeria. I like the retro posters of Sylvester Stallone and Jacques Chirac which rub shoulders with old moumoute chairs and old clocks. In addition, we feast on slices of pizza with truffles. Yum ! 52 avenue de la République, Paris 11e

A destination: Nantes


Jean Sébastien Evrad A lover of vintage style, Nantes is your next vacation destination! Strolling through the small streets, you will discover a multitude of retro shops such as Atelier du Petit Parc, Viviane Vintage or Maison Simone. Go for it!

An object: a triptych mirror


Past + Present This old barber mirror is making a comeback in our interiors and has found its place with me in my hallway. Reissued at AM PM or Conforama, we still prefer a version in its own juice unearthed on a garage sale.

An atmosphere: a Scandinavian style living room


Dulux Valentine When we talk about vintage style, we imagine ourselves directly in a living room with a Scandinavian look, and it is not for nothing. We love their light wooden furniture with fine and elegant compass feet and their warm materials. In a more contemporary version, I like the use of yellow, very trendy this season, on the wall or on the bench.

A piece of furniture: a row of teak


Atelier du Petit Parc Aesthetic and practical, the teak sideboard has everything to seduce us. Coming from our friends in the North (Denmark, Sweden ...), it has made a place for itself in our contemporary interiors. In the living room, the dining room or in a large entrance, it slips everywhere. We adopt it!

A brand: Red Editions


Red Editions If you do not have the courage to walk the flea markets every Sunday morning to find the rare pearl, know that there is re-released furniture that plays very well the game of vintage style. Love at first sight for the 120 sofa from the French brand Red Editions, which offers furniture inspired by the 1950s.

One color: water green


Dulux Valentine Soothing and soft, the water green goes very well with a vintage style interior. Light and refined wooden or decorative furniture with an industrial look, it adapts to both.

A designer: Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Office We know their famous RAR rocking chair reissued by Vitra, made at its creation in fiberglass. More than 60 years after its release, it hasn't aged a bit and is still available in many colors. We get one as soon as possible!

An exterior: a garden with a retro feel


Tricia Fountaine Old apple crates transformed into flower pots, old zinc watering cans used in vase; in a vintage style garden, we play recup 'and it works. As a table, we divert an old cable reel and we hunt for a few wrought iron chairs.
