Forget the stresses and strains of modern life and escape to a pretty vintage bedroom with tons of retro appeal. Feminine and completely charming, a vintage bedroom is also easy and surprisingly inexpensive to create.
Our decorating tips will make light work of recreating a traditional vintage bedroom through classic colour schemes, delicate accessories and homemade extras that will give your bedroom a personal and unique touch.
Vintage style isn't about having the latest trend or must-have technology, so why not consider making some of your accessories and soft furnishings yourself? This can also be a fun way to decorate a room, with greater satisfaction at the end. Start by making a lace blind. Hanging a single lace panel over your window is such a simple but effective way of achieving that sort-after vintage look.
Once you are feeling more confident in your creative skills, you can try something a bit trickier, such as stenciling a wall panel behind a dressing table or chest of drawers. This is a great way of creating a focal point in the bedroom and will double as a great place to hang jewellery and trinkets. You could even try making a decorative headboard out of card - so much more affordable than the real thing and just as pretty!
Don't forget bedroom lighting - it can be a key ingredient in creating a cosy atmosphere in the bedroom and should be one of the first things you plan into your scheme.
Finish off your vintage haven with some classic French-style furniture, which you can paint white to match the rest of your room. Don't forget to consider traditional extras such as painted floorboards, worn rugs and dainty soft furnishings.
Creating a vintage look in your bedroom doesn't have to cost the earth. Soft colours, delicate patterns and textured fabrics bring instant vintage style to a bedroom.
Hang your favourite pictures in vintage style frames from Next or add a vintage clock from Not on the High Street.
