Vintage Inspired Bedroom (A Well Dressed Home)

Being the vintage lover of all things that we are, we are truly inspired by this master bedroom make over of Jennifer’s of Momento Designs.   She worked with her friend, Emily of A Well Dressed Home   to achieve this fabulous retreat.


Look at the unusual wall treatment.  Just wait until you see what they did with the vintage inspired bird cage.  Click the link above to read the whole story.

Raise the Ceiling: A Romantic Bedroom

Another space enlarging touch for a small bedroom is to be creative with fabric by drawing the eye up to the ceiling.  Love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens.  This instant canopy made with swing arm curtain rods and fabric really makes the whole room pop!!

The romantic and elegant chandelier also draws your attention to the ceiling.  Loving the one pictured with its cottage feel.  Here’s one I found at lampsplus.com which may be a good alternative.

or this swag one that plugs into the wall if you have no electrical skills or would like to drape over a side table..

Whether you use sheer fabric for a more romantic, wispy look or you coordinate fabric with existing furniture or drapes in the room,  this space enlarging idea is a winner in my book.  Here’s another space saving idea for a bedroom headboard we posted today.  Have fun!

Shelves to Headboard: A Space Saving Idea

Many of you who own older homes have the same problem I have – small bedrooms with every nook has to be maximized.  Here is a handy idea from Better Homes and Gardens  of turning book shelves into a headboard which not only provide much needed storage but also act as a piece of art.

These units could be found by looking in thrift stores or here are some already painted white available at Target.  A couple of these would do the trick!

Fill it full with books, pictures, artwork and what-nots for a very impressive focal point in your bedroom.
