Vintage Holiday Finds

Thanks to our fall intern, Holly, for putting this blog post together!

Now that it’s officially December, here at CurlyRed we are giggling with joy about the upcoming holiday season. Family, friends, giving, Santa Claus, cookies, snow, there really is nothing like the holidays.And what makes this time of year even better? Holiday design! Some of the most interesting and visually appealing designs are actually holiday themed.

We’ve noticed that many of this year’s holiday-inspired designs, whether it be package design, holiday cards, gift tags, holiday album covers, etc. actually stem from design work of the past. A design trend this season is taking a direct influence from classic vintage design. The use of delicate patterns, flourishes, traditional typography and even sometimes imagery from those time periods seem to be everywhere we look this season.

And we certainly aren’t complaining. We can’t help but fall in love over and over again with this design trend. There’s just something about the vintage look that makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside. While fresh, colorful holiday designs have become exceedingly popular over the years, it’s nice to know that the old-fashioned vintage aesthetic will remain a design classic forever. With this in mind, we bring to you this collection of vintage-inspired holiday designs. These designs are the perfect inspiration to get you in the holiday spirit.

Have you found any really great vintage-inspired design this holiday season?
