OK, I'll admit it. I went into this book as an easy get it out of the way review. What I found was a really cool book for those choosing to style their home in vintage. I was shocked by how much I enjoyed this book.

This book, in the 90 pages I had, was thorough. Complete with:

1) example photos
2) Tips for shopping
3) Room/decorations examples/tips
4) Period inspirations

For those interested in this style of entertaining, it is a must buy.

I really enjoy the "Style Me Vintage" series, I find them very interesting and intriguing to peruse. This one is really targeted towards European/British market so I doubt I would find it useful if I were wanting to "style my home" vintage with the tips from this book, but they would still be quite useful. I like the pictures and ideas, definitely interesting and worth having a look if you have a thing for "vintage".

I'm a vintage eclectic type person, and this is chock-full of great tips for sourcing vintage pieces and using new materials to create your perfect "vibe". 20s-70s, more than just furniture, it includes wall decorations, kitchenware, and decor placement, as well as colors schemes and tips for dating pieces. Very cool!

Quite an informative book about vintage style, although I found the mix of styles in some of the photographs to be a bit muddy. A lot of that is down to personal taste I suppose, but to me they looked like the 'Before' pictures you see in makeover articles!

Despite my own complete lack of interest in developing a personal style, I still find a lot of joy in flipping through style books. I'm also a huge fan of vintage items, even though it's not something I'm drawn to for my own clothing or home. Paging through any well-formatted and photographed style book will always interest me, as does historical fashion and home decor. So the Style Me Vintage series is a perfect way for me to spend an hour or two of free time.

Both of these books are incredibly

I just don't get it. I got this book from the library because we have a lot of antique malls near us and I thought I could get some ideas about updating furniture or artwork. But this book adopted whole periods into a room. for example, a 1920s kitchen. I don't like throwback style. I prefer updating antiques or incorporating them into a room with different styles. The only thing in the book I liked was that she used old office furniture as bedroom drawers. It had the look of old library drawers ...more

After reading through Style Me Vintage: Home, I can say that I am ready to kick up the style a bit in my home!

I enjoyed the way the book was laid out, taking the reader through six decades of vintage style. The photos are engaging and the tips are quite helpful. I was able to narrow down my particular vintage style tastes thanks to the explanations and pictures that accompanied each decade.

All in all - a great book!

It gives ideas and fabulous inspiration for ecah decade chosen so that the reader can recreate the looks with ease at home. It gives tips on where to get the items and what to look out for that makes that period stand out and unique. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is an absolutely beautiful book. I have an older home and love vintage style . I am just clueless how to go about it. This book has fabulous ideas through the 1920s to 1970s. She gives sources and advice as well as lovey photos on how to acquire the look you want.
