Create an affordable vintage bedroom

On August 28th, 2008 by .

  • First choose the wall colour. Opt for a pale blue or green. Farrow & Ball and Dulux have some great colours
  • Create some affordable and bespoke artwork for the wall. The pictures below were very easy to make. Buy three small canvases, rip out some vintage style images from magazines (fashion pages always look good). Lay them on top of the canvas and paint with PVA glue as this will act as a clear sealant. When the glue is dry, hang the pictures in a row of three vertically or horizontally
  • Invest in a fabric dressmakers dummy. These look fantastic in the bedroom and if you can afford it, the older the better. Not only do they add a vintage touch to the room but they can be used to hang a favourite dress or all of your necklaces
  • Buy some old fabric rose lights (anything other than fabric can look tacky). Hang them over a bedstead, round a wardrobe or over a windowVintage bedroom, Pippa Jameson Interiors

Add some bright coloured accessories to a plain white bathroom

On August 28th, 2008 by .

Moroccan tea glasses make great toothbrush holders and will brighten up a plain white sink.  If you have a small side table in the bathroom then cover it with a striking runner.  Keep a note book in the bathroom as not only will it add a splash of colour but also come in handy when you remember all the things that you need to do whilst relaxing in the bath!

Transform a tired looking room with some funky wallpaper. Wallpaper is an in-expensive way to add a bit of style and colour to a pale room.  vThis particular style is from B&Q.

Start by choosing a wallpaper that compliments the tones of the existing accessories.; I would suggest taking a sample home to see if it works within the room. Wallpaper the chimney breast, a whole wall or simply wallpaper one strip as shown in this picture.

Wallapers Direct stocks a lot of wallpaper suppliers such as Graham & Brown, Wilman, Sanderson, Cole & Son, Villa Nova, Harlequin, Linda Barker, Morris & Co, Julien McDonald, Monsoon, Crown, Brian Yates.
