Decorating Ideas Using Vintage Purple Posy Motifs
For an enticingly soft and sentimental bedroom look, consider decorating with purple posy motifs. Use antique and collectible decoratives to create something uncommon and unique. Here are ideas for bedroom décor with vintage purple flower memorabilia.
Bedroom Décor Using Purple Flower Vintage Textiles
A good way to start this decorating scheme is with vintage textiles. Bed coverings, pillows, curtains, and scarves all are possibilities. For instance, you might make a cozy chenille bedspread from the 1950s the focal point of the bedroom and source of colors compatible with purple. A sensational spread, such as one with a pale lavender background, featuring a strutting peacock amid deep purple, pink and yellow flowers, would be an example. You could also use a traditional antique quilt with an appliqué floral pattern, or a depression era yo-yo quilt, made of gathered circles formed into a floral design featuring purples.
Vintage curtains and valences are other ideas. Maybe 1960s cotton canvas fabric panels with a blue and purple floral pattern, or 1950s bark cloth curtains with purple background – white and pink lilies. Older valences, such as one with a floral pattern, trimmed with an eyelet ruffle, could serve as a springboard for other fabric piece ideas in the room.
Collectible dresser or table scarves are other possibilities. For instance, you might find and use a flower basket shaped crocheted doily, adorned with three-dimensional purple flowers. Or a set of embroidered scarves featuring southern belles in a floral garden with garland carrying bluebirds. Some vintage textiles may be hand painted, such as pillowslips decorated with delicately done designs of periwinkle hydrangeas with matching crocheted trim.
Bedroom Décor Using Purple Flower Vintage Lamps
Antique and collectible lamps decorated with purple posies will add soft light and a sweet touch to your room. Maybe you’ll find and use an antique hurricane glass font lamp with rich purple and pastel pink blossom design covering it. Or a old pitcher shaped white milk glass lamp decorated with a purple and yellow bouquet design. Miniature vintage oil lamps, such as clear glass pieces with hand-painted tiny flowers are another possibility.
Bedroom Décor Using Purple Flower Dresser Items
A collection of vintage purple flower ceramics and figurines can add fun and cohesion to this decorating scheme. For instance, a couple “lady head vases”, planter shapes popular in the 1950s and 60s, or other figurines with purple flowers. Along this line you might find and use a vase shaped like an old-fashioned miss with purple flowered bonnet and bow under her chin, or a “Lefton” full figure of a Victorian lady in an off-the-shoulder dress with full skirt adorned with purple posies.
Other shapes of figurines, old trinket boxes, and pin dishes might work well also. Vintage shoe-shaped figurines, filled with flowers, delicately painted floral design porcelain dishes, or intricate brass and cloisonné pieces are examples.
