    Up Your Style Quotient With Vintage Bedding

    The term vintage may evoke memories of your grandma’s house. However, the truth is that the best vintage bedding design can be anything but old fashioned. Dating back to the 1940s and 1950s, the design style reflects the looks that were popular during the economic boom following World War II. This prosperous time in history was showcased in the home design styles, with the period featuring bright hues, bold patterns, and luxurious furniture and upholstery. At Latest Bedding, we’re passionate about helping homeowners create eye-catching bedroom looks that reflect their unique taste and style while filling them with joy. Considering a master bedroom makeover this year? Keep reading to discover some of the most exciting looks currently available in our online shop. 

    Why Shop Vintage Bedroom Sets

    Vintage bedding and decor might promote feelings of nostalgia. However, that doesn’t mean this style is dull or passe. On the contrary, going vintage can help your home stand out at a time when a majority of decorators are choosing Scandinavian or minimalist stylings in the bedroom. The key is to abandon old-fashioned options like doilies and porcelain dolls in favor of styles that sing. We’re talking about everything from bold-hued sheets to fresh floral comforter sets and pillows in playful fabrics like velvet and faux fur. So what exactly counts as vintage in the bedroom? Read on for details. 

    Characteristics of Vintage Decor

    A broad category, vintage decor includes a wide range of furnishings and bedding options. However, there are a few elements that separate this trend from the competition. Expect vintage furniture to feature plenty of wood and upholstered fabrics. Additionally, this style is deliciously soft thanks to the flowing lines and soothing color palette. The end result is romantic but classical. Here are some qualities to look for when selecting bedding that boasts vintage flair:

    Muted Hues

    Those looking to recreate a vintage look in the modern day may want to opt for a more muted color palette. This decor style is characterized by soft shades like pale blue, sea green, dusty pink, and light yellow. Along with evoking the memory of days past, these colors are great for making your bedroom feel calming. If you haven’t been getting enough sleep of late, more mellow bedroom decor can help you rest easy no matter how stressful the day. 

    Playful Patterns

    Of course, vintage bedroom design doesn’t have to feature solid shades. You can conjure the feel of days gone by while celebrating your favorite prints. Florals, stripes, and polka dots are all common in vintage decor. However, you can incorporate bolder looks as well. We love the idea of adding a pop of leopard print to your room in the form of a pillow or throw blanket. Just don’t go overboard. The goal is to keep your room tasteful and classic while being memorable. 

    Tasteful Texture

    Texture is a crucial element of any bedroom style, and vintage designs are no exception. While velvet is a classic choice - think upholstered headboards and throw pillows – you can play with other textures as well. Chenille, cotton, and even faux fur can be beautiful additions to a bedroom. We especially love a velvet pillow decorated with brass buttons. As a bonus, these delightfully soft fabrics are great for cozying up with that special someone.

    Sleek Metallics

    Speaking of brass, metallics are a great accent for your vintage style bedroom. While gold and bronze may be classic choices, daring vintage designers don’t hesitate to incorporate some rose gold and even silver. Want to make your space even more striking? Opt for matte black in your headboard, bureau, or nightstands. You can even incorporate some metallics in your throw pillows for added fun.

    Dated bedroom decor is unlikely to fill you with joy. Luckily, today’s vintage prints are anything but ordinary.

    Anna Multi 200 Thread Count 100% Cotton Percale Duvet Cover

    A duvet cover fills a key function in protecting your duvet from dirt and oil while providing a soft surface for your skin. One of the benefits of choosing the Anna Multi 200 Thread Count Duvet Cover is that it’s reversible.

As a bonus, this crisp percale cover is sure to keep you cool year round. 

    Joli Jour Multi 200 Thread Count 100% Cotton Percale Duvet Cover

    Speaking of fresh florals, the Joli Jour Liberty design is hard to beat. Crafted from 200 thread count 100 percent cotton percale, the cover incorporates chic anemone flowers along with classic stripes. With a color palette of blue, greige, and tan, the design evokes feelings of calm while keeping your vintage bedroom modern. We love the way the bed looks when you put the floral side face up and fold the top over to reveal a foot or so of stripes. Note that shoppers can pick up coordinating throw pillows and shams for an added cost.
