Vintage style bedrooms are back in fashion. This timeless look is a great way to create a cosy and inviting atmosphere whilst adding an air of sophistication.
In fact, according to Vogue magazine, vintage and secondhand furniture retailer Chairish enjoyed a sixty percent increase in sales during 2020. The vintage style is very much here to stay. Follow our top five tips to help you get started.
1. Choosing a Colour Scheme
When it comes to creating a vintage style bedroom, it’s important to choose a colour scheme that will help to create the desired look. Go for earthy tones such as beige, cream, and light grey which can be easily complemented with deep rich colours such as navy blue and burgundy tones. If you want to add a focal point, add a bright colour such as yellow or pink.
2. Adding Textiles
Textiles add texture and depth to the bedroom. Sometimes it is hard to find exactly what you are looking for. Choosing crochet blanket kits is a fantastic way to get the colours and style you are looking for. Create a quilt or throw by using a crochet blanket kit, such as those seen here: www.woolcouturecompany.com/collections/blanket-and-cushions-crochet-kits. This is a sure-fire way to create a cosy and inviting look, and can be customised to suit your needs.
3. Antique Furniture
Antique furniture is a great way to add a vintage touch to your bedroom. Look for pieces that have a classic and timeless look. Handles and knobs can easily be changed to suit your style. Odd furniture that can be upcycled is also a great way to complete the look.
4. Vintage decor
Carefully placed artwork adds the finishing touches to a vintage style bedroom. Classic prints or paintings that go well with the colour scheme will never look out of place. Mirrors with vintage frames and surrounds will help to create the illusion of a larger space, making it brighter.
5. Accessorise with prints
Patterns of print help to finish off the look. Choose floral designs on lamp shades or bedspreads that can complement the room. Using floral patterns on lampshades and curtains brings the design together.
Creating a vintage style bedroom can be a fun and rewarding project. With the right colour scheme, carefully selected furniture and prints, a room can easily be transformed into a timeless space which will be enjoyed for years.
