Even if you’re not a fan of vintage design for a whole house, aretro look for a kid’s room is just a classy touch. It never goes out of style (it’s already dated) and it’s really unexpensive to make. Just remember about few things:
1.Find a standout old furniture.
It can be a small wide chest of drawers or a huge wardrobe that will fit all your child’s treasures. Carved wooden beds are in great demand right now. Decorated with a canopy will make a signature vintage mark. Just go and look for them on your nearest flea market or search Ebay or Facebook Marketplace. What you do with your find is up to you – you can leave it in it’s natural shape or you can change it completely by e.g. painting it with bright or pastel colour.
Look below for inspiration:
2. Stick to one colour palette:
Go with white, pastels or bright colous. Mixing these is a tricky job. But if you stick to beige palette (like the example below) and put a main furnite in other colour here: pastel – the effect will ALWAYS be stunning.
3. You don’t have to go all the way
Remember that to create a vintage effect you don’t have to have all the details dating back to 1900. Just one furniture and a couple fo details is enough. Two posters, a hanger, old books or pillows – they will do the trick!
4. Vintage-looking wallpaper is always a good idea!
Birds, roses, magnolias, stripes – these are the patterns that will create a retro look. The more the better. Remember old houses and the rooms where wallpapers were practicaly on every wall? Choose the right pattern and create a unique look, don’t be afraid!
