Looking to add some vintage style to your modern bedroom? Do you love to mix of modern and vintage decor? Then you will like my blue and white bedroom decorated for summer. I mixed rustic with modern, vintage with brand new and heirloom pieces with Ikea bought. And it works!
Summer bedroom in blue and white. Good day dear friends. I have been playing with something old and something new, something bought and something blue……
The scene of my shenanigans: the bedroom. The props of my play: new and old bedding.
I told you that I had been on a little shopping spree and most of that was spent at my favorite store in the world: IKEA. Of course I went in for something prosaic as a protective floor cover and came out with a ton of other things that where just too cute to leave behind, especially for that price….

One of those things was some new bedding. I honestly can’t say I needed it, but after I started working on our bedroom (two years ago already and still not finished Oy!) I enjoy it so much more and I love decorating it.
This blue and white striped bedding, ticked all my little boxes. It is summery, even a bit beachy, it feels super soft and it had a very friendly price tag. Who can pass that up.
This brand new bedding does have a bit of a vintage feel to it. The blue ticking stripe bedding definitely brings back memories of days past. And the white sheet with matching pillow cases has some lace details the look vintage too.
As I was putting my new linens on the bed, for the first time I thought it needed a little extra something, something. And then I thought of this vintage crochet bedspread I found a couple of months ago. I hid it from the man because I know this is one step too far from him. But I tried it on anyway.
I think it looks so nice. I love it. The soft blue colors, the crochet pattern, the love that went into it. I could even happily drape this over my couch or simply fold up in a nice pile and stare at it. It is in perfect condition and held up great in the wash (so it now smells nice too).
Mixing modern and vintage styling
I love how this mix of vintage and modern, old and new turned out. Whenever you are mixing styles like that you have to remember just a few simple rules to make it work. Make sure that something is echoed in the opposing elements. In my modern and vintage mix bedroom styling, the color is what holds the different elements together. There is a mix of styles, of age and of patterns but the consistent use of blue and white in the same color tone brings it all together.
The rustic backdrop of my repurposed wood headboard is echoed in the industrial metal look of my bed frame. And the color white on my modern bedside tables is the same white as on my vintage chair with a postal sack reupholstering.

Oh and what do you think about me trying to do the whole crumbled bed look? I think it looks quite inviting. If it weren’t so very hot right now I might jump right in.
Don’t you agree that my brand new bedding looks great with the vintage bed spread? Do you like the crumpled look or do you prefer the neat and tight hotel room look when it comes to bedding on your bed?
Let’s talk bedrooms……

PS That headboard just screams for a custom-made garland or bunting don’t you agree? I have been eyeing and spying for the perfect garland to make and I came across a golden oldie that I really love. The colors are not really my style but I LOVE the design. What you think would a beachy version of this pocket banner garland work? Let me know and I’ll get right onto it.
