Easy Breezy: Decorating with Vintage Fans

Easy Breezy: Decorating with Vintage Fans

Vintage household appliances are always an interesting addition to room — they add a certain charm and style to a home, no matter the over-all aesthetic you're going for. But, what really seals the deal for decorating with these vintage items is when they're still functional!

Sleeping with a fan on, especially in the summer, is essential in many households. Turn them off during the day to save electricity, but crank those babies at night! If you're in need of a desk fan and don't want to succumb to the ugly modern day interpretations, try a vintage fan.

They're super attractive and often they're still fully functional and really easy to come across. Place one on top of a stack of books on your bedside table or if you have a collection; bunch them up on top of a bookshelf if you just have them just for aesthetics.

Vintage fans are perfect little gems that have form and function on lock down!

IMPORTANT NOTE: As some wise readers have mentioned below in the comments, there are important safety concerns to be aware of when considering actually using vintage fans, rather than just displaying them.
