How to Add Vintage Style & Charm to the Bedroom
We confess, at Vintage Style Living, we love the charm and simplicity that vintage style adds to the bedroom. We’ve found # illustrations of our points to show you visually how to add vintage style and charm to your bedroom.
Vintage portraits offer tons of style and appeal but they also come with a fairly hefty price tag. A more affordable alternative is to use vintage black and white photography. You can pick up vintage photographs on all kinds of subjects from people to landscapes that will be of interest. Invest in nice frames and matting to really make them stand out. This wall display is a perfect illustration of the impact vintage photographs can have.
Prop a large vintage mirror up against a wall in a bedroom and you achieve at least three things. One, it will reflect a lot of light and anything beautiful in your bedroom. Two, the mirror reflects everything in your bedroom, including you. Who doesn’t love an oversized full-length mirror to decide if the outfit you have on is as perfect as you think it is. And three, an over-scaled vintage mirror will certainly provide the WOW factor. Our case in point:
Don’t forget that your ceiling is a surface too. Add wallpaper, ceiling tiles or a decorative paint treatment and top it off with a stunning chandelier. You’ll get instant warmth and personality.
Rugs add warmth as well as personality. They offer a punch of color and design to what can be a somewhat boring surface.
