Furniture may be the bread and butter of most interiors but a well-placed rug will have a surprisingly significant impact on the feel of a room. A colourful rug will lend a welcome dose of pattern and panache to a more neutral space. By contrast, calm down a busy decor scheme with a more simple model. A room full of similar tones, across furniture and the wider decor, can benefit from a rug which helps to break up the space. Recent years have seen a rise in popularity of the iconic monochromatic Beni Ourain rug, although none can deny the timelessness of the world celebrated and richly coloured Persian rug tradition. Fortunately, the Vinterior collection encompasses a vast array of vintage rugs, from traditional to textured, patterned to plain.
With seasons changing, it is a perfect time to talk about colour — rich, jewel-toned colours, to be more precise. Autumn always sees us seeking cosiness inside our homes, and while there are numerous ways to warm up a room, not many have such a transformative power like a bold colour choice.

The most sought after interior style of today must be the eclectic style. A strong desire for authentic, meaningful interiors takes us on a journey around the globe, but also back to the past where we seek guidance and inspiration from the once popular furniture pieces and design styles. Our desperate quest for optimism and self-expression is bringing to focus the Space Age aesthetic to remind us of a time, not so long ago, when the sky was not the limit.
Here at Vinterior, we have a sweet tooth for period homes, and this one surely tickles all the right taste buds. If you are a lover of eclectic style too, yet still find yourself struggling with pulling together a coherent look, take notes from this brilliant space.
We learn all about the fascinating designer behind beloved brand Ercol, who immigrated from Italy as a young man at the beginning of the 20th century and fell in love with furniture design.
Lighting is the unsung hero of interior design. No matter how well you’ve organised your floor plan, how carefully you’ve curated your home collection and decorating touches, without a proper understanding of home lighting design, the results will remain flat. Layering the light is key to well-designed home, yet it is most often overlooked by design enthusiasts.
