A vintage style bedroom is not as big a luxury as it might look like. Though vintage style things can be quite expensive, a tight budget must not stop you from giving your bedroom that vintage look you always wanted.† A little creativity and imagination will go a long way. After all, money canít buy everything. Here are some tips to turn your boring bedroom into the vintage style bedroom of your dreams:
Mix n match colours: To create the old world, shabby charm in your bedroom, mix and match and miss match, yes you read it right, miss match colours and patterns in your pillows, carpets, accessories to perfect that look. Let conventional notions of style and colour not bog you down.
Create delicate patterns: A vintage style bedroom is not so much about anything as textured, soft fabrics and patterns. So, if you are planning on getting a dark coloured bed sheet, buy a lighter, softer shade instead. A peach or beige hue is perfect as it gives that clean and careful look.
Get round edged furniture: You must discard those furniture with sharp, masculine edges and go for furniture with soft, round edges. You do not have to splurge on a new set of sofa or study table to achieve that look. All you have to do is go to your attic, pull out some furniture that has none of the pointy edges that would spoil the whole look. Then, you need to paint the furniture with a soft, feminine colour. Make sure you donít use colours that are far from subtle. After painting it, use some sand paper and remove the paint off of the edges to give your furniture the worn out look of the old times. Get the right flooring: Get wooden flooring for your room, preferably in a light colour. Add a subtly patterned rug to perfect the cozy look.
Use milk paint: when everything else fails, use milk paint to achieve the perfect vintage look. It gives the dried off look that is reminiscent of the old world charm that will give your bedroom the vintage look you need. Follow these simple steps to get the old world look right. Like we said, some creativity is all you need.†
