Vintage Bedroom Design Ideas
In the case of vintage bedroom design ideas, the word vintage refers back to the period of time around the 1940’s and 1950’s, and designing your bedrooms with a vintage style will certainly take you back in time. Vintage decor will integrate traditional and nostalgic features into your home, and includes a wide range of style designs from countless different periods in time.
If it is your intention to design a vintage bedroom, the first thing you need to do is decide on a time period that you would like to use as your theme. You will also need to decide on a realistic budget for your project. The size of your budget will vary depending on the time period you choose. For instance, Victorian furniture is going to cost you a lot more than say bedroom furniture from around the 1940s or 1950s.
Here are a few tips on how to create a vintage look without spending a fortune.
Shopping around for vintage bedroom design ideas can be a lot of fun. You will need to make a journey to your local antique stores and discover what treasures they have to offer you. You can be creative here, there are no specific rules.
For example, an antique desk would probably make an excellent dressing table, and just a few vintage prints can change the whole ambience of your bedroom. Flea markets are also a great place to find vintage bric a brac, along with thrift stores and garage sales, where you are likely to pick up items very cheap. An old lampshade from a past era can create a lot of style on a bedside table.
Shop around for bed linens and attractive items that have a vintage feel about them. If you can source some vintage linens, you could actually design your own bedding, pillows or soft cushions.
If you want to design a vintage American 1950s style in your bedroom, look for some colorful fabrics to make bed linen and soft cushions, and hang large prints of pop icons or film stars from the era on the wall, such as Peggy Lee or James Dean.
If you like the idea of a 1920s theme, go for art deco and modernism for your bedroom design, or incorporate fake animal hides which were extremely popular around that time. Imagine leopard print bed linen or even printed cushions.
If you are prepared to take the time to really develop your vintage bedroom design ideas and search for the specific items you need, you will be able to create an original bedroom theme that reflects your own personal taste and you will love it!
