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 a far reaching style that makes it easy to show off creativity, and can not be contained to one simple definition. But in general, vintage style means decorating with furnishings, fabrics, accessories, and colors that were popular decades back in particular, the styles of the 1940s and 1950s. Technically, however, the term vintage refers to any item that is more than 20 years old, but less than 100.
You will soon find that when it comes to vintage furnishings, paint can be your best friend. Even if a vintage piece is scuffed or stained, it is easy to give it a makeover with a bright new coat of colorful paint. For example, the lovely turquoise bedside dresser from Margot Austin shown here. Although there is no hard and fast vintage color scheme, you will generally find that the vintage palette is soft in intensity, uses a lot of creamy white, and gets colorful with mint or moss green, pink, soft blue, palest lavender or buttery yellow.
A flea market painting of roses and an array of old perfume bottles complete the romantic vignette on the dresser. The whimsical chandelier over the bed complements the rooms style. A curtained cased opening separates the master bedroom from the family room. Brown and blue are paired in the master suite, keeping the room restful yet crisp.
