I confess. I'm in love in traditional classic interior decorations. Which partly explains my choices in my own living room and dining area. For example, I prefer my wooden dining table over the modern acrylic or sintered glass furniture (for now). Haha!


It's because my idea of interior beauty is that which got to do with comfort and style and soft colors. The ones with cushions, and curves and classic. Those factors when weaved together creates a homey ambiance, for me.


And that's what I found from the showroom of Ashley furniture homestore in Glorietta 2 Ayala Mall. I'm fat with love in this store. Their vintage casual showcase is quite lovely, that which can elicit an ohhh's and ahh's and wowww's with heart eyes and puppy love smiles! LOL!





Impressive, right? To achieve such looks, I think there are things to consider.

1.  Lighting. Ever notice how inviting and warm welcoming are the showrooms of furniture in home stores? It's because they got the right amount of luminescence that brightens or softens the room. At home, it can be achieved by adding or updating old lights with new ones or stylish versions. How cute it is to have those old glass lamps. Or those bird-cage styles.  Or you may brighten up your room with lampshades, light colored curtains and opening more of your windows to let the natural light comes in.

2. Wall Paint. One of the basic things I always see in TV shows about home styling and decorating, is that they change the wall paint to achieve the look that they plan to have.Try Secrets of a Stylist in Colors, and the first step that they do is paint the wall. While at home, this one could be practical. Try one side of the wall which will serve as highlight to your room.

3.  Accessories. This one is achievable and practical, too. It can be any small stuff like chair pads, throw pillows, vases, plants, photo frames, artworks, rugs, etc. Just as I've mentioned in my curtain tips post, it can be changed occasionally to create entirely new look.



4. Declutter. When you have kids, or dogs or cats, what's the disaster rating of your living space in any given day? Haha! Well, that's something that we can't move out from the house but other stuffs can be. Hence, a day of organizing and cleaning is one effective way to achieve homey looks like those photos above with furniture of somethings like those from Ashley's.




5.  Accent chairs. If I may suggest, investing on one or few pieces of furniture that are interchangeable to any other room, such as accent chairs, is one of the practical ways of creating this vintage casual style. Gone are the days of all matched sets. The new trend in styling is having accent chairs and versatile pieces. A stylish one can transform any room into vintage casual.




Ready for your space's improvement? I hope that my layman's photos could help. Or go swing by their store and have an inspiration.

Live well!
