Achieving that “traditional” bedroom look

Many homeowners justifiably spend a good deal of time debating how exactly to furnish their bedrooms in a way that reflects their personality and domestic aesthetic. Choosing the right window treatments, for example, can be a tricky process that understandably takes time and consideration. Regardless of the outcome, there are a few steps that everyone who is decorating their bedroom should take before making a final choice. 

According to Better Homes and Gardens, expansive textures and draperies are the hallmark of a "traditional room." There are many definitions for this phrase, but for the purpose of this article, let's look at it from a Victorian/early 20th century perspective. Tones should be gilded, leaning towards silvers and golds that catch the sunlight on nice days but also give the room a glow even at night. Additionally, you'll want to hew toward fabrics that are alternatively thick or gauzy, depending on the feel of the room.

Flowers are also a great way to enhance the traditional look. Porcelain vases with chipped floral patterns are perfect for small bedrooms, tables or a desk. Wood paneling is also a welcome addition, giving the room an earthier tone that blends with with whichever color scheme you opt for.

Custom window shades are the ideal choice for those seeking a traditional feel, as homeowners will have a greater degree of control over the final look of these draperies. Reach out to Bazaar Home Decorating today to check out our amazing services and get started on improving your home decor!
