You could interpret ‘vintage look’ in many ways when styling your home, but all that’s really required is a love for all things old which were well-loved. This theme of preloved items full of character runs through the homes featured in Mollie Makes magazine and we can’t wait to show you a handful of them. We hope you’ll be as inspired by the vintage decor featured in the homes of these creatives as much as we were.
Upcycling fan Mieleke Rodermans leads a contented life in her colour-filled Dutch home. This little area of her studio has us mesmerised. The vintage basin, white broken tile mosaic, spot of greenery and vintage posters and trinkets is the perfect place to get creative. Take notes! Photo credit: Henny Van Belkom.

Fashion designer Abbie Walsh‘s home has a theatrical flair and everything inside, even the tiniest thing, has a story. This fairground light was made by one of her friends in Deal, Kent, and looks perfectly dreamy hung beside lace, satin and sequin tops. Photo credit: Kristy Noble. Featured in Mollie Makes 50
Hang botanical vintage prints such as Caroline Rowland‘s above sideboards which not only provides storage, but a surface for displaying trinkets and treasures such as the Habitat lamp designed by model Helena Christensen above and a vintage teapot.

Have you got a copy of Maker Spaces by Emily Quinton?
