Looking for unique decor ideas for your bedroom? Make your bedroom both stylish and functional by embracing more vintage elements. Yes, a vintage style bedroom leads to an old-fashioned yet classic look that can’t be replicated. Decide what era you would like to recreate and dive on in!
Here are a few elements that every vintage style room needs:
Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of a vintage style decor is that you don’t have to purchase new or trendy furnishing pieces. Instead, you can use older, handed down pieces and repurpose them so that they are fully functional. You can shop at thrift shops, flea markets and garage sales for local treasures. Breathe a new life into old or neglected pieces such as window shutters or dressing tables. We’ve seen old doors revamped into a headboard. The sky is really the limit.
White Walls or Floors
If you really want to recreate a vintage vibe then you should paint it white. Whether it’s the walls, floors or both whitewashed floorboards and walls gives off that antique feeling. Opt for whites with warmer undertones such as a buttermilk or vanilla as opposed to stark white.
Go for the Delicate
If you’re interested in a vintage boudoir look than you should select lots of frilly fabrics, distressed furniture and pretty yet muted colors like a pink and pale peach. Use lace bedding and a vintage patterned rug. Lots of floral prints and patterns work best with this look.
Don’t Forget the Dressing (Table)
A vintage bedroom isn’t complete without a dressing table. Whether you steering towards a Grand Victorian handcrafted from wood or a distressed repurposed desk you can use the surface to showcase your jewelry, perfume, and pictures.
Be sure to implement vintage accents to really achieve an old school look. Ask your older family members if they have any tokens from their past that they are willing to part with. An old-school typewriter can be a great accent accessory. You can create a nightstand table out of stacked vintage suitcases.
Have fun taking your bedroom back to a different era. Post photos here if you have done this yourself!
