Decorating with a vintage style has become increasingly popular in recent years. Window treatments with a vintage flair are a great option for recreating an authentic vintage aesthetic, which should always be a throwback to past eras of interior design.
As prints and colours are some of the most effective ways to create a vintage look, it makes it easy to find blinds that fit within this style. After all, blinds come in so many colours, patterns, and textures that it’s surprisingly easy to achieve stylish vintage décor throughout the home.
Let’s take a look at some great vintage blind options:
Custom Wood Blinds for the Classic Vintage Look
Wooden blinds look great in virtually any era, so you can take certainly take advantage of this when looking to create a vintage style. Available in many colours, it’s easy to find that ideal vintage tone for your décor.
Better still, add coloured cloth tape for a wonderfully vintage contrast. For instance, natural wood tones paired with rich coloured tapes (such as burgundies, dark reds and greens etc.) makes the vintage blinds really pop out, making it one of the focal points of the interior design.
Roller Blinds for a Blend of Modern and Vintage
Looking for a vintage blind option with a modern twist? Look no further than roller blinds. Popular in the mid-20th century, these blinds offer a more modern take on the vintage look, with a range of colours, patterns, and fabrics available.
There are many ways to create a vintage style with roller blinds, with many great retro patterns available from retailers. Think 60s and 70s patterns, with vibrant colours and bold pattern shapes to produce that authentic look.
Roman Blinds Offer a Subtle Vintage Flair
Much like roller blinds, roman blinds have a wide range of styles available. The softer fabrics create a much more subtle and elegant vintage style, with many great patterns and colours to choose from. Floral patterns offer a sophisticated vintage look that isn’t too bold, although going for more vibrant colours and designs are ideal for a more daring vintage décor.
Taking it a step further, London Blinds create a wonderfully vintage style. This unique style of blind is like roman blinds, although made from a softer fabric and features inverted pleats. These pleats help to create that retro look to great effect, working especially well when paired with curtains.
