A vintage bedroom is all about pale, pastel pinks and blues. Avoid bold, dark colors at all cost. These soft colors will give a soft, dreamy and relaxing feel to your new and improved room.
Keep in with the theme; hang a lace panel at your window. This will allow light to stream through as well as giving privacy. The delicate look of the lace will reflect the vintage look of the rest of the room. If you need a pitch black room to sleep in, simply add a white roller blind behind the panel of lace.
Staining your floorboards white will give your room that shabby chic, vintage bedroom feel. This is inexpensive and instantly recognizable. If you miss bits don’t worry, this will add to the look. Need something warm to rest your feet on when you get out of bed? Purchase a rug in the color of your walls in a traditional pattern.
White furniture is key to achieving and finishing your look. However don’t worry if you cannot find a white one. Simply buy a French style console table in mahogany and use the left over white paint for the floorboards to paint the table. Add a vintage old bevelled mirror and you have instantly created a girls only, feminine corner.
Add a chandelier
Lighting is important in any room, but in a vintage bedroom try hanging a small delicate chandelier, it will add a touch of glamour but also be a focal point in the room.
It is all about the finishing touches. Look out for small design features that ooze that vintage bedroom feel. Door and drawer handles will make your ordinary furniture look unique and that little bit more special.
Have fun and enjoy creating your sophisticated vintage bedroom!
