Those looking to combine a Bohemian look with shabby chic style can opt for throw pillows and bedding in brighter colors while a French country or beach cottage chic styles demand far less color. No matter what flavor you veer towards remember that color is secondary to texture and finishes in the shabby chic bedroom.
We often hear homeowners complaining about adapting a new feature or trend as many are afraid that it simply might not work in their home. If the same is true for chalkboard walls in your bedroom then start off with less obvious and expensive alternatives before settling in on a final look.
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!
Green in the girls’ bedroom coupled with pink works surprisingly well and it elegantly complements other colors such as brown and orange as well. Working with more than 3 or 4 bright colors in a room requires great care perfect planning and a hint of ingenuity that lets each hue stand out while blending with the overall look. While it does sound like a risky proposition get it right and you will have a playful kids’ room that is a visual treat.
While some homeowners prefer to leave the chalkboard wall in the bedroom largely untouched and give it a more curated refined vibe others love the eclectic presence it has.
Regardless of which camp you fall into there is little doubting the fact that shabby chic has made giant waves in the world of interior design over the last two decades. Today the elegant style is more popular than ever before and homeowners are increasingly gravitating toward its charming appeal.
Painting the ceiling in green can be a fun alternative and by leaving the walls white you will still have a neutral and versatile backdrop that will beautifully showcase wall art and sculptural décor additions.
Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
