Check out these 10 Rooms That Prove This Vintage Accessory Can Feel Thoroughly Modern, from Apartment Therapy
Who doesn’t love a good record player? They’re functional, stylish, and keep popping up in home tour after home tour.
If you’re worried about adding one to your own place without making your houseguests wonder if they’ve been transported back to 1962, fear not.
The rooms below prove that these babies can look just as cool now as they did way back when.
1. Antique-Inspired Corner
Placing an antique-inspired record player on a trendy storage cart helps combine past and present. Plus, as this home proves, there’ll be plenty of room for record storage down below.
2. All White Everything
Sticking to an all-white color palette keeps this setup, from Kate la Vie, looking nice and fresh rather than stuffy and dated.
3. Sweet and Simple
Keep it simple. Minimalist spaces, like this one from The Crafty Gentleman, always look more modern.
4. Plant-Filled Oasis
The best way to automatically add life to a space? Plants and more plants! Green friends—along with peaceful-looking art and a pop of pink—surround this record player and keep the room, from A Beautiful Mess, current.
5. Simple Storage
We’re big fans of the record station in this playful, stylish home. A low storage system leaves room for eye-catching, contemporary art above.
6. IKEA Cult Classic
We love this stylish home‘s spin on an ever-popular IKEA shelving system—it really does provide all the record storage one could need.
7. Fun and Funky
In this home, funky white sculptures and acrylic magazine bins appropriately contrast with the record player’s wooden base.
8. Vintage Vibes
Vintage-looking art and accessories will pop against moody walls, which are having a major moment as of late. The record player and guitar fit in perfectly in this home.
9. Bold Boho
We can’t get enough of accents like macramé plant holders, jute rugs, and boho pillows, and we love how the record player in this living room seamlessly blends in with these popular pieces.
10. Sunny Corner
Classic pieces like bar carts and midcentury modern side tables are just as popular in now as they were decades ago. Embrace these throwback pieces and style them using contemporary accessories like succulents, candles, and a more modern-looking record player, like this couple did in their Chicago home.
