In Heritage Style, Selina Lake celebrates the new nostalgic mood in interiors, using vintage and inherited furniture and other accessories in a fresh, original fashion.

Our homes are more important to us than ever before, and heritage style harks back to the reassuring comfort of traditional interiors. Paneling, wallpaper, floral fabrics, and heritage paint colors provide a backdrop for house plants, artworks, and contemporary crafts, while upholstered and wicker furniture, pretty decorative detailing, and plump throw pillows feel warm, welcoming, and familiar. It’s not only a comforting style, but also a sustainable one, built around pre-owned and vintage pieces sourced at online auctions or on Instagram and given a new lease of life in modern homes. Heritage Style shows how to create a home that feels both modern and nostalgic at the same time—inviting, easy to live in, and full of intriguing personal touches.
