A vintage-inspired bedroom has a romantic, sentimental look. Pull your grandmother's cherished pieces out of storage and use them to create a charming bedroom style. Pair antique items with candy colours and airy fabrics to keep the look fresh and inviting. If you don't have authentic vintage items, use realistic-looking replicas, or make the decor pieces yourself. Design the bedroom around your favourite vintage-inspired coloured or use a beloved heirloom piece as decor inspiration.
