If you think about a bedroom with a bohemian vibe, you will often picture a room full of colorful items and bright colored walls.
That is indeed the most common bohemian design out there.
But, as the bohemian spirit is more about soul freedom and harmony in life, you can easily have a bohemian design in a minimalistic way, only focusing on vintage neutral colors.
This will add a bohemian touch to your bedroom, minimalistic, yet very beautiful and creating a peaceful vibe.
Along with neutral colors, pastel colors are vintage colors that are perfect for retro bedrooms.
They are able to bring light and color to your bedroom and therefore create a very serene and restful ambiance.
Pastel pink and blue especially can never go wrong together and will allow you to create a beautiful contrast.
You can still opt for a monochromatic bedroom and use the different shades of only one color if you have a hard time choosing your pastel colors combination.
You might be surprised by the numerous shades a color has and how they will amazingly blend together, making your retro bedroom look really good. We recommend using blue as we think it is the most soothing color for a calm atmosphere.
You can also choose a patterned wallpaper for your retro bedroom using pastel colors.
This makes it very easy to pick your other furniture as your wall brings enough color into the bedroom.
You can even DIY your wallpaper and paint it yourself.
Or, you can simply opt for white walls with white furniture, and only add some pastel color to your sheets. Again, pastel blue is our favorite.
Apart from the colors, you can also have a retro-themed bedroom, depending on what you are a fan of. If you like racing, then this room will totally inspire you.
If you love science, a science-themed bedroom will definitely reflect your interest and give you a comfortable and inspiring atmosphere to study, as well as relax.
As teenagers, we had the perfect retro bedrooms as we all loved hanging posters reflecting our interests. And if you are a melomaniac, you know that your bedroom has to reflect your enthusiasm for music and look like this.
You don’t have to use lots of colors in your bedroom in order to have a hippie theme. As you can see, a peace sign and colorful flowery sheets are largely enough!
And what is better than flowers, if it is not more flowers? Your retro bedroom can look really good with only a frame composition of flowers’ pictures and flowery sheets.
If you are into art, think about using some Van Gogh’s sunflowers’ prints, they will look awesome.
Brown shades are vintage colors that look very classy, especially when combined with some plants. Your retro bedroom will look more elegant than ever, with ever little effort (Except for taking care of the plants, of course)
Using lighter shades of brown will make your retro bedroom more joyful, and create a very cozy atmosphere, especially combined with big plants (preferably plants that will help you breath better and enhance your sleep)
Whether yellow is your favorite color or not, a retro bedroom based on this color will, without a doubt, make you smile.
This color’s warmness can only bring bright thoughts and sunny feelings.
Pink is also a color to consider in order to create a perfectly girly retro bedroom.
In this picture, they used a pale pink to have a soothing vibe.
Pink and Yellow
For a happier bedroom, bright pink will do. We love pink as it can be combined with almost any color. Our suggestion here is to combine it with yellow, as it will make your retro bedroom even more joyous.
Pink and Orange
Bright pink and orange combination is really underrated as they are so close on the color wheel, yet this retro bedroom will make this color combination your new favorite.
