In fact, it can be a bit overwhelming to decorate with nothing but period pieces. Instead, mix a few vintage accessories or furniture with new items. This bedroom, for example, makes good use of a pair of lovely vintage nightstands and a pair of old suitcases given new life with a coat of bright blue paint. The bedding, however, is new, although it has a vintage feel thanks to the chenille throw blanket.
If this is the case, the first thing to do is take a look at the wattage of bulbs in your bedrooms lights. If the number is high, try picking out a bulb with a lower watt, like a 40 or 60 watt bulb, you are aiming for ambient lighting, and preferably something that is not shining like a spotlight directly on your bed. We recommends installing a dimmer switch so you can slowly lower the electrical lights as it gets closer to bedtime.
It is amazing how many people neglect bedroom décor when they think about decorating their homes. They rationalize, if I only sleep there, what does it matter what the room looks like? The fact is, the way you decorate your bedroom can help or hurt how well you sleep. Whether it is too bright lighting sources, a lack of cleanliness, or even the color of the walls, there are a ton of factors that can add up to sleepless nights and some you would not expect.
Because decorating with vintage finds means furnishings are often a bit ragged, mismatched, or in need of a bit of love, the style lends itself particularly well to DIY projects, such as the wall covered with old shutters shown here. Let your imagination run wild! The Hawaiian inspired accents in this vintage bedroom add a dash of fun to the space.
