Vintage Decorating

In the bedroom you can transform your linens by sewing crocheted lace to your sheets and pillowcases. Be sure to pile plenty of pillows covered with vintage pillowcases on the bed. Quilts and eiderdown comforters will also help you create the  vintage style look. Shop flea markets for some vintage lamps and lampshades. Beautifully shaped lamp shades fit this style as do padded hangers covered in vintage fabric. Hang scented packets of potpourri from the hangers and also create some for your bureau draws. Fill them with lavender potpourri and tie them with pretty ribbons for that really old fashioned look and smell.
