What is a vintage bedroom?

You've probably seen the term come up before, but maybe you don't quite know what it means. The word is used to describe furniture and accessories that are at least 30 years old. Because the items come from a period when they were not produced in multiples, they are all unique items from the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties. A vintage bedroom has a cosy, old-fashioned and unique atmosphere and we are happy to tell you how to create this living style!

What materials fit in a vintage bedroom? 

You can go in many directions in terms of materials in a vintage bedroom. You can use various types of wood, both dark and light. Rattan also looks good in a vintage living style, as does velvet. 
If you want to prevent your vintage bedroom from looking old-fashioned, you can combine old furniture with new. You can do this by using some more modern materials here and there, such as metal. You can go in many directions when decorating your vintage bedroom and that's what makes it so much fun!

Choosing the right colors

A vintage bedroom has many options in terms of color use. For example, the 60s mainly had bright colors such as yellow and green, and the 70s again had busy patterns and motifs with floral prints.

You can create a vintage bedroom with earth tones, pastel colors or natural tones such as olive green and blue. It is important that you decide in advance which color palette you want to go for, that will make decorating your bedroom much easier.

vintage furniture 

This is arguably the most fun part of creating a vintage bedroom: picking out vintage furniture! This will therefore mainly be furniture that has already had a whole life, furniture with a story. Pay a visit to the thrift shop: there is a lot of special furniture to be found! Vintage furniture often has obvious signs of wear, such as scratches and faded colours, but that is precisely what makes this living style so attractive. They are often unique pieces with round shapes, graceful edges and a robust appearance.

Recycling accessories

When a bedroom is nicely decorated, you will immediately notice that it is much more fun to spend time in it. In a vintage bedroom it goes without saying that you also opt for vintage accessories. Cushions, rugs, lamps and some other gems, such as an old record player. You can find it all in, for example, the thrift store or on the market. Finally, you can add plants to your vintage bedroom.
