Creating a Vintage Inspired Feature Wall

Since moving to our new house nearly two years ago and doing a full restoration, we’ve filled the house with beautiful furniture and decorated every room. However so far we have neglected to really put anything up on our walls.

I had started to frame a few of my favourite things and put them on the wall in our living room a few weeks ago, but the wall was definitely lacking something dramatic to set it of.

So when I was contacted by online interior store Out There Interiors and asked if I wanted to review something from their shop, I couldn’t resist this painted resin stag head.

The rest of the wall features a vintage sewing pattern, some vintage fabric, a vintage handkerchief, some 1950s sheet music, some antique haberdashery items and some pretty paper all in plain white frames. The stag’s head is a fabulous modern take on an old-fashioned interior item and I think it looks great with the vintage things I decided to frame.

I absolutely love my new stags head, and the way it contrasts with the other things on the wall. It also ties in the rest of my living room which mostly has cream accessories. The quality is fantastic and as it fastens to the hall with a simple picture hook it was easy peasy to put up too. I’d really like to get some tiny fairy lights to hang round the antlers, to finish off the look.

You could easily recreate this look by gathering bits and bobs and a stag head of your own, and create something very individual.

I was really impressed by the selection of vintage style home wares available at Out There Interiors, and spotted lot’s of other items which would look great on a vintage inspired feature wall. I have put together a few of my favourite statement pieces which would look great in any vintage lovers home…

Row 1 

Vegas Alphabet Lights (all letters available) – £285,

How amazing would it be to have your name up in lights?

Distressed Coat Hooks – £19,

These would look great with vintage decorations of jewellery hanging on them.

Antique Finish Combination Frame – £105

I’d love to use this to display old family photos.

Row 2

Large Red Wooden Wall Clock – £265, 

I just love this, a big clock is a great wall feature.

Multi Coloured Combination Frame – £149,

This would look really cute filled with vintage seaside postcards.

Raw Metal Industrial Cabinet – £145

I’d love this on a prominent wall in my kitchen to display vintage pirex and pans.

Row 3

Narrow Distressed Plate Rack – £75,  

This could be filled with pretty miss-matched vintage china to make a wall really stand out.

Large Wooden Jewellery Cabinet – £59, 

I would mount this on the wall and fill it with vintage pearls.

Distressed Magnetic Display Board – £85

This is great for displaying little notes, pictures and postcards.

 They also sell a fantastic range of furniture and other fabulous home accessories. Check out their website here.

      Of course! I love the Queen, and she’s wearing Norman Hartnell! 🙂

    That is such a terrific focal wall. I love the stag’s head that you selected. I’d never hang a real animal head on my walls (not judging those that do, it’s just not my cup of tea personally), but one of these beauts would make it up there in a flash!
