Designer Sharon Callis is here today to show us an important element of the vintage style that is her signature – rich color.
This royal burgundy is a great example of the rich, saturated colors that can give a sophisticated air to vintage style design. Paired with the contrast of the detail of crochet ribbon, like Sharon did, it provides an especially lush look.
Tone on tone is a great way to use damask without the pattern being overwhelming. Here, the burgundy damask provides visual texture and enhances the theme while still remaining subtle.
