Holiday Home Interiors by Style: Vintage

Nowadays, there’s next to nothing that you can’t do with a Allens Caravans holiday home interior; the key is to incorporate your personal touch and really make it your own. However, with so many different styles to choose from, how can you possibly pick the right one for your interior?

Although it’s true that you’re a bit spoilt for choice, your personal preference plus budget will help to narrow down your options and give you a realistic mindset as to what you want to achieve with your interior. For example, do you want it to feel comfortable and cosy or would you rather opt for a more sophisticated or state-of-the-art approach? Whatever style you choose it’s important to bear in mind the financial and practical side of things.

For instance, if you want to add a touch of class to your holiday home, it doesn’t mean you need to replace the furniture completely. Little things can make a big difference when it comes to interior design so consider what would be most practical for you in both the present and the future.

Other factors you need to consider are space and feasibility in terms of how realistic your final interior vision is. However, you shouldn’t be put off by the list of things to keep in mind. In fact, revamping your holiday home interior is an exciting experience and can completely change the ambience of the space. It also provides a great opportunity for you to incorporate your personal style into your home away from home.

So without further ado, we have created this holiday home interior series to provide you with advice and a few ideas on what you can put in your holiday home according to your chosen style. This week’s style is… vintage!


Ah yes, the vintage style strikes again! Vintage interiors are becoming increasingly popular, not just in holiday homes, but in properties and caravans all across the country. It’s a great style to choose as a lot of its features are cheap and cheerful, making this particular interior style ideal for those on a tighter budget. In addition, quite a lot of vintage-y items can be made yourself; this will also help to save money and make your holiday home just that little bit more personal – it’s also a great way to get the kids involved in something new!

If you want to do little things to achieve the vintage style you can:

•    Save a few jam jars, wash them out and pop a few small flowers inside. You can also tie a ribbon of your favourite colour around the top of the jar to give it that special something.

•    Turn an old mug into a bathroom soap holder – you can also paint the mug beforehand to make it a little more personal.

•    Use an old record as a side table top.

•    Use old novels and books to make a collage of your favourite quotes, pages and pictures.

•    Find an old tree branch and turn it into a mini shelf (note: you may not be able to overload the shelf with weight).

•    Hang fairy lights around the door frames.

•    For a seasonal idea, you could purchase a few sprigs of holly and pop them in frosted glass jars for a Christmassy effect.

•    Use mismatched tea cups to create a mini herb garden for your holiday home’s kitchen.

•    Create a lace dream-catcher and hang it above your bed.

These are just a few ways you can incorporate the vintage style into your holiday home without going overboard. Why get some more inspiration from our website or better yet get in touch and show us your vintage style holiday home.
