If you want to try out shabby chic is definitely the time and the bedroom is the perfect place to get started! The soothing and feminine bedroom and shabby chic style seem like a match made in decorating heaven.
The ‘Dream Chair’ was imagined and designed for Carl Hansen & Søn by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. A sculptural opus this lounge chair embodies both Danish craftsmanship and Japanese design tradition.
Chalkboard paint is easy to apply takes little extra effort when compared to normal paint jobs and if you are not willing to try out a whole wall covered in chalkboard paint you can start off with smaller sections or even beside decor.
Similar to the first example shown in this article this bookshelf headboard from Made By Mood shows how you don’t necessarily need to put yours up against a wall and instead makes a great solution for a partition.
Most people tend to forget that the bed is indeed the central component of the bedroom and tend to focus far too much on everything else in the room. A vintage bed frame in wrought iron that is cleverly re-painted or a classic bed with European flair seem the way to go in most shabby chic bedrooms.
There is no strict rule that says shabby chic bedrooms should only be draped in white and white alone. Of course as you read on you will realize why white is a great option in most cases but feel free to throw in a bit of your own ‘style twist’ to customize that bedroom with color.
Tadao Ando holds a special high regard for the design approach of Hans J. Wegner and the Dream Chair is his personal tribute to the Danish designer. The chair seeks to “express the same harmonious minimalist expression typical of Wegner’s design.”
Obviously the choice of the bed is also determined by the size of the room and the décor around it as you do not want to put an excessively large and indulgent bed in a small space.
