If you love the vintage, retro look of childhood bedrooms gone-by but don’t want to go the full antique, these modern-vintage takes on classic and traditional designs of the past are a great place to start, combining a dash of nostalgia, a sprinkle of whimsy and spoonful of contemporary, all seamlessly intertwined.
