I love vintage, so, to me, the idea of decorating a kid’s bedroom in a hotchpotch of pretty floral bedding, distressed furniture and jumbled bits and pieces is sheer heaven.

What makes the vintage look even more appealing is that it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive to work. Furniture that has seen better days can be revamped with paint or even wallpaper, while vintage pictures, cushions and mirrors can be sprinkled around for the cutest mishmash.
Take a look at these little havens for inspiration.

The stripped-back, unfussy lines of Scandinavian styling are perfect for a vintage bedroom. Revamp an old chest and chair simply and cheaply with a fresh lick of paint (duck-egg blue, dove grey and sticking-plaster pink are good colours) and replace knobs with pretty glass versions.

Whitewashed floorboards and plain white walls make a great backdrop for vintage pieces. Introduce smudges of pretty pastel with cute artworks, baskets and bunting, and hang up dressing-up costumes for a personal touch.

Sometimes, it really is the simplest of schemes that are the most effective. The powder blue walls, unassuming window seat and layers of pretty bedding in this room create a charming bedroom that the youngest member of the family will love for years to come.
