Vintage French bedroom decorating Ideas that are affordable! When styling this French bedroom decor back in 2011, I knew I wanted this bedroom to be affordable, dreamy and romantic!

French Bedroom Decorating Ideas
The set included a bed frame and two nightstands. The original color of the bed was dark beige, but I painted it white. For a soft feminine look, I decorated the bed with some faux pillows and crisp white bed sheets. My favorite color has always been the color white, since I was a kid. That being said, as I was selecting a color palette for my French decor theme, I chose French bedroom accents that were as close to white as possible.

French Decor diy Ideas
Let’s talk creative French bedroom decorating ideas. I totally did a DIY on these door panels, which were originally brown wood that I painted white using a chalk paint (Click Here). The white paint really made the contrasting metal designs pop. The doors are light weight and easy to hang on the wall. At the time of styling this room I didn’t complete the diy on the doors. In my room update post, I totally transformed these doors. By the way if you haven’t seen my bedroom tour video on youtube you should totally watch it! Click Here, it will give you a closer look at the vintage panels before I painted them.
Lastly for my other walls adjacent to the bed, I hung only 2 of the silver trio of flowers. This set includes, a sunflower, a magnolia and a hibiscus. I realize these are not really French but at the time of styling this bedroom, I hadn’t quite grasped that I was loving vintage French decor. It wasn’t until my French Office Tour video, I had the epiphany that my true design style was vintage French. That’s why watching my updated bedroom tour will show you how I transformed these walls to reflect a true vintage French look.

For enjoyment, I like to keep yummy snacks and reading materials beside my bed. My go to book at the time was a book called, Get Over Your D@mn Self which I leave on my nightstand. At the foot of my bed I have an ivory tufted ottoman and the most beautiful area rug underneath. A dainty glass jar set filled with my favorite candy and nuts are place on the top of a throw blanket and serving tray which are also on the ottoman. This rectangular ottoman is a perfect hideaway for extra storage pillows and blankets. Although its not in the vintage bedroom decor family, it works for now.
