Setting The Colours 

One of the very first important decisions that you must make when designing a vintage bedroom is the colour scheme that you will use throughout.

There are certain colours that suit better than others, such as washed out pastel colours in comparison to bold and bright tones – remember, vintage and traditional style interior design will focus on typically ‘weathered’ shades to add a little age to your space.

It’s a good idea to add a touch of glam to your bedroom as per any good vintage spot in the form of colours like silver or gold, but try to layer these shades rather than going overboard.

Using Traditional Features

There are several different traditional features that you may want to consider using inside your vintage bedroom design, as they can really add to the authentic traditional look and feel.

First of all, a real hit that was very popular in the past (therefore the perfect fit for vintage) is panelling. A wall-panel lined bedroom can be the ideal vintage sanctuary, as there are many typical wooden designs to completely revamp your space.

A dressing table or vanity unit is another must have item to properly complete your authentic design!

Shop Smart 

One of the worst things that you can do when trying to create the perfect vintage bedroom is to head down to your local budget home store to invest in several ‘vintage style’ items.

It’s almost impossible to achieve an authentic vintage look without purchasing real traditional items, as there’s only so much that a new product can bring to the table in terms of aesthetic value.

It can often be far more affordable to actually seek out a second hand vintage item rather than purchasing brand new, and you an utilise many platforms including internet auction sites to identify the best pieces. 

Search for your local charity shops or antique stores and make it a habit to frequent there often when they re-open after Covid… They often have the most incredible pieces which only require a small amount of re-vamping to fit perfectly in your new vintage bedroom.
