simply savvy decorating…old world style

I love clean lines, calming colors, linen fabrics, reflective items, and rustic decorative touches that balance darker wood flooring and furnishings. I find that a room that is layered with a variation in colors/tones, textures, and style has more warmth, dimension, interest, and life.  You can add old world charm to your home by mixing simple accessories; such as, vintage maps, old boxes, or flea-market and antique finds.

I recently attended a Designers event at STASH in Memphis and came across a few decorative items that were rustic, interesting, and vintage in style–adding old world charm to any home.  These items grabbed my attention because my home is a combination of a coastal and english cottage. These add a fun element that is vintage and stylish…


An affordable, yet high impact art addition to a home are vintage maps.  We found beautiful maps of the Caribbean and of England on eBay, adding old world art to our collection of coastal prints. It works with any style, like these:


Better Homes and Gardens




vintage glam and boxes for extra charm and warmth…




Adding something vintage, antique, or a global decorative touch does not mean you’re going all out Old World style …but it is lovely!



Simply Savvy Tip: If you have decorative objects that are no longer your favorite, try grouping them with other items in your home to give them new life. It may add an eclectic or global touch to your room.


Take a look at the Simply Savvy Pinterest board for more inspiration, credits, ..and just overall pretty pictures.


Group your decorative items and give them new life and some global charm.
