You can create a unique bedroom by mixing new with vintage as we did in our new beach house. Our primary bedroom has personality by using collected, vintage pieces with updated, new furnishings.
Our new bedroom is large! It’s not really finished as I’d like to add a larger rug and bench. But let me give you a tour…
Mixing New With Vintage Such As This Antique Bookcase and French Engraved Prints
This is the left side of the room. We bought this 1850’s marble-topped bookcase in Paris. It used to be in our dining room. We used it with the Anthropologie Primrose mirror and four engravings of scenes of Paris. The table lamp is a few years old from West Elm.
Entrance To The Ladies’ Loft
To the right of the bookcase is the entrance to the screened-in porch, AKA Ladies’ Loft. You can read more about the Ladies’ Loft here. I love it out there!
New Upholstered Bed
Those are our old bedroom chests with new linens by Serena and Lily and a vintage rug from Turkey. I think we could use a bench at the foot of the bed. I added texture in the same tones as the chests with the affordable rattan round mirror.

Luxe Well-Priced Curtains
The striped cotton curtains soften the windows and I was surprised by the “luxe feel” for the price.
The walls are painted Benjamin Moore Simply White with China White trim.

PS. Here is our bedroom with a new lumbar pillow from Pillow Fever.
