Last week I took over a friends house to style a kids bedroom two ways – using the same furniture I added items to create a girls and a boys room with a vintage look. In decorating terms, the vintage look has been popular for a while and shows no sign of becoming passé. Modern furniture and decor designers are re-interpreting designs from the past to bring us up to date vintage look items.
Creating a kids room vintage style is really about bringing together a mix of colour, pattern and texture – there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Plain white walls and timber floors are the perfect canvas to add colour and pattern to so think about layering – whether it be the bedlinen, the rugs on the floor or a collection of items on top of a cabinet. Have fun with it.
