August 17, 2012Sixties Bedrooms For Your Daughters
Those of you who own homes built in the late Sixties and have teenaged daughters may delight in seeing these bedroom decorating ideas. You should be able to duplicate the styles and maybe find NOS linens of the era.
The photos are from my collection of Seventeen magazines.
Be prepared to be blinded by color!
APRIL 1969 ISSUE
OCTOBER 1966 ISSUE
A daybed, beaded curtains, Granny’s pillows, furniture to find in thrift stores.
Bamboo furniture, chartreuse walls and pink, red & white accents. Even window shades!
Another daybed with a homemade spread, fisherman’s netting to hang keepsakes and a shag throw rug.
Brass bed, backrest and a table on casters.
A make-shift window seat from an old trunk, repainted and covered with material to match the shade. The “jewelry” tree is a creative way to display your treasures.
Show these to your daughter and see if they don’t spark an interest in decorating a la MCM!
