A Vintage Bedroom Makeover

A Vintage Bedroom Makeover
by Nikki Pepper

A lot of makeovers make an old room look brand new. This one takes the opposite approach, and we love the vintage-inspired result.

There's nothing wrong with this master bedroom. Sweet, pin-tucked bedding, basic furniture and a hint of the vintage look that the homeowner, Jennifer Vaughn of Memento-Designs, was after. But it was when she teamed up with designer Emily Hewitt of A Well Dressed Home that the room transformed into an elegant, put-together space.

The biggest change in this room was actually the least expensive -- the loosely decoupaged wall. Pages from old books lend the space history, texture and a lovely neutral palette. Playing off of the light colors, the mint and peach bedding and ruffled pillows are old-fashioned without being dowdy. And the lamps and mirrors flanking the bed make the space look much more thought-out than before. No more mirror on the floor!

Recognize that shelf from the "before?" Love that it now fits into the space and is accented by accessories that match the old world vibe.
