Who doesn’t have a toaster? But who really loves their toaster? Why shouldn’t it be a stylish piece of design in your kitchen? So we loved seeing the new De’Longhi Icona Vintage collection inspired by De’Longhi’s classic Italian heritage. With beautifully curved silhouettes, each product is accentuated by 1950s inspired colours.
To celebrate the launch, De’Longhi has partnered with stylist Jason Grant who shares here his top tips on how to bring classic elegance to any home.
1. SMALL CHANGES CAN MAKE A BIG BANG
It’s always exciting to add new appliances to your home, especially if it is an elegant piece from the new De’Longhi Icona Vintage range. Sometimes, it only takes one purchase to trigger the decorating bug!
2. MIX OLD WITH NEW
Just because you have a sleek, modern home doesn’t mean you can’t add a vintage twist. The elegant curves of the Icona Vintage range work perfectly with the smooth lines of a new kitchen. With a range of colours, you are certain to find the one that works best for your home. My favourite colour in the Icona range is the ‘Anita’ sky blue – it looks stunning on a modern white marble bench top.
3. ADD A PERSONAL TOUCH
It’s fun to add your personality to your home. I love to express myself with quirky vintage finds. I don’t like things to be too “matchy matchy”, so I’m always mixing new with vintage. I’m a fan of anything handmade too!
4. COLOUR CODE
Choose classic, elegant colours that you can update with accents; remember by layering vintage tones, you can add depth and interest to your home, while maintaining a common thread of colour.
5. SPLURGE A LITTLE
There are certain items we should spend more on – think lighting or even some quality linen napkins.
Modern? Classic? Shabby chic? What’s your interior decorating style?
