Add a vintage flair to your living space

When it comes to design, old is always new.  Whether you are in the mood for eclectic, traditional, vintage modern, mid-century modern, shabby chic or just about any other style, classic vintage pieces can be easily found at flea markets, garage sales, antique stores, and even the attic. These great additions to your space help express your personality and style while honoring the past. The secret is in the balance.


Here are a few ways to infuse the past into your home to give it an antiquated feel.

Stay Unique
Fill your home with vintage pieces that define you and your personal style. Don’t shy away from bright colors, as they balance your palette and pull together the space. Rich dark colors on the walls and furniture creates the perfect backdrop for vivid, contrasting moments throughout, so you can greet your guests with comfort while presenting decor that is undoubtedly your own.

Lights, camera, action
Old movie posters are a great way to bring vintage aesthetics to your living room. You may want to pick a few of your favorite classics like Gone With the Wind or Casablanca, or you can choose a foreign film that has great artwork. You can check online vendors like Amazon or look through eBay for people selling their private collections. Frame your finds in an antique frame that matches your faux wood blinds or pick a slick new one that mixes the old with the new.





Go Boho
Are you drawn to all things eclectic, colorful and unique in both your fashion statements and your home? Boho chic means using a little creativity and whatever one has on hand like mix-and-match fabric patterns, antique mirrors, specialty lighting fixtures, brightly hued candles and travel-themed accessories. Creating a boho chic decor is fairly simple, and the result is an eclectic decor with a bohemian stylish flair.

Rust is a must
Many times if your decorations get rusty that isn't a good sign, but if you go antique shopping sometimes finding old appliances that are covered in rust gives them a timeless feel that can complement your home. Unfortunately, rust can cause a mess so you may want to put any antiques on some decorative lace, or perhaps reserve them for great lawn ornaments.

Incorporating vintage decor to your living space can also be great for your budget. Who doesn't love a beautiful bargain?

Solar Shades that Beat the Heat: A Customer Story
By Julie Roseman

Have you ever been in a restaurant where the sun hits you right in the eyes? You are squinting to see what’s on the menu while your stomach rumbles with hunger. Today's Customer Story shows you how one business is beating the heat.

For restaurants and business owners, solar screen roller shades are the perfect solution to prevent glare and block UV rays. By blocking the sun's glare, solar shades help reduce the sweltering heat and prevent the need for high levels of air conditioning.

Chris Fitzgerald, Co-owner of Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint -Edgewood in Atlanta, Georgia, was looking for relief for her customers, "Today was sunny and hot and while the temperature on the thermostat was still high, the solar shades were helping. And regardless, it helped remove the intense glare which is great.”

Fitzgerald chose Payless Decor's Advantage Solar Shades in Tabby Chocolate for the large windows in the restaurant's front entrance. With a western exposure and no window treatments, it became a problem area for staff and customers alike. “It was so hot and the glare was awful so we had to do something,” said Fitzgerald. “We had a custom blind guy come and give us a quote, but we couldn't justify the cost.” Payless Decor's affordable prices on custom solar shades fit their budget and they are very satistfied with their purchase.

Solar shades are ideal for restaurants, offices or anywhere the sun's glare is a problem. Shop our selection of solar shades - available in a wide variety of colors that exactly match the color selection of our Advantage Solar Sliding Panels line that allow you can create a beautifully coordinated room setting. Payless Décor can help you filter the light and keep out some of that heat!!
