This vintage bedroom decor from the 1930s — which could have been for a guest bedroom or a mother-in-law’s suite — had decor elements unique to that decade: an intersection of art deco style and modern decor.

The curved white cabinet doors were a very art deco detail, as were the curved details on the wood furniture and red chair. 

Still, this room had a lot of attributes that would be welcome in a home of any era. There was a built-in bookshelf by the head of each bed, with a light that both illuminated the shelves and acted as a reading light.

The small white bench in the middle of the room was the seat for the dressing table between the windows. A narrow table served as a desk, and also a barrier separating the sleeping area from the entrance into this room.

Most of the furnishings in this room — including cabinet doors, the bedding, and the fuzzy carpet — were all white. The walls were dark grey and medium grey, the darker color also appearing on the padded leather-look square tufted upholstery added where the bed met the walls.

On the floor, an embossed plaid linoleum featured all the space’s colors applied on a beige background. The two narrow windows had brown Venetian blinds, trimmed with red and white ribbon that ended in red bows on each side.
