Go vintage in the kitchen


If you're considering giving your home a bit of a revamp this year, no doubt you'll have done your research into what's popular in interior design at the moment and will have found out that the shabby chic style - which looks to eras like the 1950s for inspiration - shows no signs of stopping. But did you know that one of the easiest ways to get the vintage look at home is by investing in an easy-to-clean tablecloth?


By putting one of these on your kitchen table, you'll immediately change the look of the whole room - with hardly any effort and without having to spend a huge amount of money, which is definitely a win-win situation! You'll find that there are lots of different styles of tablecloth that reflect this vintage look, so make sure you shop around to find the right one for you.


Flowers are obviously a huge part of the shabby chic trend, with beautifully retro designs on pale pastel backgrounds - and these would look lovely in any home. Alternatively, you could go for something a little different and buy a tablecloth with birdcages and birds on it. Paisley is also a very popular motif that you can buy in a variety of shades, but one of the best patterns to emerge in recent months is vintage bicycles. These look lovely on cloth and you're sure to get all sorts of compliments rolling in if you do decide this is the right choice for you.
