Love a nostalgic look? Check out this creative home decor from the 1950s! This cute and clever kids’ bedroom with corner bunk beds was a cozy space for two.
The arrangement of the space here made the best use of the available area by providing a big clothes closet under the top bunk — and the doors of the closet, covered with cork bulletin board, were just what two kids need for posters, photos and notes.
Don’t miss the adjustable reading lights on the bunks, or the solid wooden pegs for hanging up coats and backpacks. At the end of the bunks, there was a bookcase with two handy bins for storing boys’ treasures.
The giant cork bulletin board, for pinning up maps and pictures, also made a good “airport.” It ran right into the ceiling, so that model airplanes could be hung in mid-air.
A ranch atmosphere predominated, all the way from the red leather handles on the drawers to the colorful floor of Armstrong’s embossed linoleum. It was a handsome floor that can take the beating two “cowboys” give it, and parents appreciated its practicality.
Planning and imagination, based on a child’s point of view, made this room the envy of every youngster in town when it was redecorated back in 1953.
A light tree with adjustable lamps put light wherever needed. Two unpainted chests were finished with durable plastic tops of Armstrong’s Corlon.
