Nostalgia Reimagined: Modern Twist On A Vintage Design by Elpis Interior

16 Oct 2023

Vintage homes have an undeniable charm, brimming with history, character, and architectural details that evoke a sense of nostalgia. But what if you could infuse these classic elements with a modern twist, creating a living space that marries the best of both worlds? 


Elpis interior’s recent project created an interesting concept that blends vintage aesthetics with contemporary design sensibilities results in a unique and captivating home that pays homage to the past while embracing the comforts of the present.


In this home, you’ll notice that this modern twist often begins with a neutral color palette. Shades of white, beige, and light gray serve as a backdrop, allowing the vintage architectural details to shine while creating a sense of brightness and openness. Bold color accents are strategically introduced through furnishings and decor to add vibrancy and contrast.


Living room

In this cozy white living room, tranquility reigns supreme. Soft, ivory walls envelop the space, basking in the gentle embrace of natural light. Plush, snow-white sofas and textured throws invite you to sink into comfort. The room’s simplicity is its charm, fostering an atmosphere of serenity and calm. A few carefully chosen accents in muted tones punctuate the space, creating a harmonious retreat that exudes understated elegance.

There are ample storage spaces scattered throughout the home and all of them exude a warm, comforting glow. This not only creates a welcoming space but also a functional one.

Dining area and kitchen

In this moody, intimate kitchen, rich, dark hues embrace you, creating an enchanting atmosphere. The focal point is the exquisite wooden countertops, their natural grain and warmth contrasting beautifully with the pristine white cabinetry. Dimmed under-the-cabinet lights cast a soft, amber glow, illuminating a cozy dining nook where conversations linger. With its dramatic palette and tactile textures, this kitchen beckons you to savor moments of culinary artistry and heartfelt connection.


Something that will definitely take you by surprise is this hidden closet. From the outside, this space may not look like much but once you step in, the ambiance is pure luxury. 

Sleek in deep shades envelop you, creating a cocoon of opulence. Dark wood shelving and cabinetry exude sophistication while providing ample storage for your wardrobe treasures. Soft, ambient lighting accentuates the curated display of fashion, making every garment feel like a cherished work of art. Step into this sumptuous haven, where style and elegance intertwine, inviting you to indulge in the pleasure of dressing with intention and flair.



This bathroom is a delightful fusion of nostalgia and contemporary design. The key lies in capturing the charm of a bygone era while incorporating the functionality and aesthetics of today’s bathrooms. Lighting is a key element in a retro-modern bathroom and the designer definitely placed emphasis on the lighting here to create a vintage look.

Warm lighting in a bathroom adds a spa-like atmosphere, flattering reflections, and a soothing feel for a relaxed and rejuvenating experience.
