If you have enough books you may not even need an actual bookshelf for this to work. Seriously. Just take a look at the wildly creative headboard made entirely out of books and nothing else found on We Heart It.
Of course even if your bedroom is huge you can still follow this trend. Try combining three narrow bookshelf units to make a large one along an entire wall like this arrangement featured on BHG.
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.
House of Turquoise shows you how to create more of a tropical look while Casa Tres Chic takes a different route with a more masculine nautical design. Twin beds also look quaint and comfy when you go along with a country theme. Check out these great headboards from Favorite Paint Colors. Charming and rustic!
Of course mirrors can sometimes be better used than framed pieces of artwork. Check out these small but elegant round mirrors hung above each bed from Zsa Zsa Bellagio. And that chandelier really is a beauty too!
Although they look good in all shapes and sizes there’s something really satisfying about this bookshelf headboard from Potted Store that fits so perfectly next to the window in this bedroom (along with being the exact same width of the bed).
In fact it is the genuinely aged furnishings that seem a lot more at home and welcome in this setting than those that have been treated to get a similar finish. Of course this means that a trip to the nearest thrift store or flea market is the best way forward when shopping for shabby chic bedroom décor and accessories. There are times when you will uncover an absolute gem in a nearby garage as well so always keep your eyes open!
Whether you wish to combine a hint of tropical charm with modern aesthetics or you want to create a guest bedroom that is full of tropical flair green is the color to turn to. A splash of bright or mossy green can turn your boring bedroom into a fun and playful space that reminds you of your recent holiday trip to a stunning tropical getaway.
