40’s Glam for Today



Step back in time and create a luxurious getaway within your own home as you decorate your bedroom in the glamorous style of the 1940s. Vibrant wall colors, tufted bedroom furniture, mirrored side tables and crystal lighting transform any bedroom into a stylish retro-glam retreat. You can find furnishings online and at your local antique store to complete the ’40s look, or make a few pieces yourself with silver leaf and mirrors.

1940s Decorating Ideas

Paint the walls in your 1940s bedroom any vibrant color that you enjoy. Fuchsia, burgundy or navy blue provide a beautiful contrast with the white upholstered furnishings and the crystal chandelier. Tape the walls with painter’s tape and paint large stripes in different shades of your chosen color as an additional decorative touch.

2. Find a white upholstered headboard with tufted with buttons and a matching full-length bench for the end of your bed. An arched headboard and scalloped or curved sides on your bench work best with ’40s-style glam designs. Bedside tables with mirrored tops and silver leaf facing balances the deep richness of the walls with the white headboard.

3. Select crisp animal print or solid color linens to offset the wall colors and full-length sheer white curtains to cover the windows. Add a mirrored dressing table complete with a skirt that matches your bed linens and a tufted bench seat.

4. Create an additional seating vignette beneath a window with white upholstered chairs and a silver-leaf table. Hang a crystal chandelier and add chandelier style lamps to your bedside tables to further enhance your 1940s décor.
