If you are looking for vintage decorating ideas, Pottery Barn, a member of the Williams-Sonoma, Inc. portfolio of brands, introduced its stunning Fall Home Decorating 2017 Collection, which has a wonderful collection of vintage style decor.
“Our customers are at the core of everything we do, and we exist to inspire and serve them. Last year, we embarked on a journey to dive deeper into understanding what our customers love about us and what we could offer to make their Pottery Barn experience even better,” said Marta Benson, President, Pottery Barn.
Their fall collection reflects these new insights, representing an evolution of the brand to embrace a wider range of aesthetics and price points, as well as a fresh approach to storytelling in their marketing to help them attract new customers.
In this collection, Pottery Barn introduces seven different aesthetic perspectives for customers to discover and explore in their new Shop by Style Category:
Artisinal Vintage is all about finding beauty in imperfections. The collection incorporates vintage-inspired florals, relaxed styling, and romantic touches. It’s inviting, romantic and nostalgic.
Coastal: Coastal Design provides a breezy, laid-back vibe with hues of blue, whitewashed woods and beachy accents.
Farmhouse Industrial: Farmhouse Industrial blends rurally based elements, hard-working metals, rustic woods, and playful accents with barnyard whimsy. It starts with fresh whites, distressed finishes, and industrial accents, then layers on classic patterns.
Global Chic: Global Chic transports you around the world with bold patterns, found objects and eclectic styling.
New Traditional: New Traditional gives new life to time-honored designs with tailored upholstery, burnished metals, and pops of color.
Polished: Polished Design is glamorous with tailored seating, luxe details and a healthy dose of shine.
Relaxed Rustic: Relaxed Rustic captures Provencal warmth with weathered woods, warm hues, contrasting tones and natural materials. Transport yourself to the countryside with materials and decor inspired by nature.
I fell in love with the Artisinal Vintage collection, as it has a timeless elegance, rich patterns, soft textures, beautiful finishes and is incredibly elegant. I will be providing a link at the bottom of the page to the styles remaining in the ‘Shop by Styles’ category as soon as possible.
Artisanal Vintage: Embroidered Pillow Covers
Give the room a touch of tranquil sophistication with pillow covers in dreamy hues. This romantic color palette lets you mix and match to your hearts desire. A range of colors makes a pillow-mix must-have.
“The fall collection is an exciting portfolio of inspired and differentiated style statements that expands the reach of our brand. Artisanal Vintage articulates one of the new brand aesthetics and is inspired by the beauty found in imperfections,” said Monica Bhargava, Executive Vice President of Product Development and Design, Pottery Barn. “Timeless, vintage, stylized florals and paisleys in classic silhouettes are counterpointed with reclaimed woods, industrial metals and burnished leathers. Subtle drama is created using a directional new color palette in tonalities of soft blush to deep plum and layering linen, velvet, and embroidery creates texture and depth. It’s a twist on timeless romance.”

Modern lines and feminine detail make this sofa ideal for softly styled spaces. Mix up timeworn materials to create a beautiful contrast.
Artisanal Vintage is a style of decorating that was coined by Pottery Barn’s design team. It’s a gorgeous laid-back look that evokes a sense of nostalgia – but still feels super fresh. Vintage style prints are making a comeback, and their version effortlessly mixes timeworn materials for beautiful contrast.
The look is at once textured, nostalgic, muted, matte, inviting, romantic and finds beauty in imperfections. The collection includes dreamy fabrics in washed florals, rumpled styling and metals with an edge. Head to the flea market or reach for family heirlooms to add the perfect finishing touch as well as mercury candleholders, faux botanicals and hurricanes. Try grouping votives in a rainbow of romantic colors, and toss a treasured floral quilt over the end of the bed or the back of a sofa.

Pottery Barn’s Tips to Achieve the Artisanal Vintage Look
1. Lay a foundation with distressed wood and patinaed furniture.
What’s a room without a little soul? Furniture with distressed finishes and chipped paint makes spaces feel as though they’ve been built over time and lends an air of authenticity. Opt for backdrops and pieces with a natural patina – a beautiful sheen produced by age, polishing and use.
2. Give it an edge with industrial elements with matte finishes.
Incorporate metal accents to keep the space from feeling too rustic or sweet. Matte black chandeliers, floor lamps, and wall sconces bring just the right amount of drama, while galvanized metal furniture and decor makes a casual statement.
3. Soften the space with loosely styled fabrics in muted hues.
Pretty doesn’t always mean perfect – so rumple it up. Drape, strew and layer vintage-inspired floral quilts, pillows with frayed edges, and plush faux fur to keep the room from feeling fussy. Dusty, subdued hues of blush, mauve, and purple have a calming effect and can be mixed and matched to your heart’s desire.
