Vintage-Style Bedrooms

Loved for their soft and charming aesthetic, vintage-style bedrooms show no signs of slowing down in popularity. Pastel colour schemes, delicate accessories and floral prints are often seen in vintage-style bedrooms, and are key to its traditional and timeless appeal. What’s more is, creating a vintage-style bedroom is relatively easy and inexpensive.

So, if you’re choosing a vintage bedroom, it’s important not to forget about dressing your windows in the same style. Thankfully, this guide is here to help you achieve a full vintage look.

Colour schemes

To achieve a fully vintage look, choose a base colour of whites or creams. If you’d like to add a pop of colour, dusky pinks, faded reds, duck egg blues and mint greens fit in perfectly with vintage style.

Regarding the window frame itself, many people will choose a white or cream frame as this is a certified on-brand colour for vintage style. Wooden frames work best as they’re more traditional, rustic and vintage looking, but you can always choose uPVC windows in a woodgrain finish or aluminium windows if you’d prefer.

Curtains or blinds?

When it comes to choosing a curtain or blind for your vintage bedroom, there are many options available.

Generally, curtains are the most popular choice for this theme. Choose floor-length curtains if possible, particularly in light, flowing fabrics. From there, you can add decorative curtain poles in brass or cream and finish the curtains off with a tassel tie for a truly vintage look.

Vintage textures like lace or net curtains are especially fitting with the vintage style, as the delicate material will work perfectly with the rest of the room. If you’re not a lace or net fan, you’ve got the option of soft, pastel colours or vintage patterns like florals or polka dots instead. If you’re a light sleeper or just don’t want sunlight seeping through to your room while asleep, you can easily add a blackout lining or blind to your window too.

Alternatively, if you’d like a blind for your bedroom window, choose a roller blind in a vintage-style floral or polka dot pattern. A standout roller blind will also help to make your window a real focal point of the room.

Window dressings

There are plenty of things you can do to achieve a vintage look when dressing your windows.

Vintage style isn’t about new, ultra-expensive modern items, so generally, you’ll want to keep your window frame as bare as possible. If you do wish to add some accessories, a candle or pretty plant will look perfect in a vintage-style window frame.

If you’re lucky to have a large window with a window box, this is a perfect opportunity to dress it for a vintage look. Add floral cushions, pastel throws or fairy lights to make the space extra cosy.

With vintage-style interiors, the key is to keep everything homely, cosy and soft. Use florals and pastel colours, and introduce warm additions of light for a truly vintage bedroom window.
