Soon you will find this single wall morphing into the focal point of your bedroom as everything from inspirational quotes to funny doodles start taking shape on it.
Admittedly this is not a style for everyone and you need both an appreciation for the ‘old and used’ furniture along with ample patience to get the right look.
For bedrooms that lack enough wall space a plain old bookshelf used as a headboard is one of the best ways to combine two pieces of furniture into one.
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.
Two twin beds placed up against a wall can serve as an inspirational canvas for hanging wall art. This room featured on Sabbe Spot shows you don’t have to keep it symmetrical when it comes to hanging lots of different pieces!
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.
Cabinets are similar to bookshelves and can also be used as headboards for LOTS of extra storage space! Here’s an adorable project from Kate Honebrink featuring an upcycled cabinet as a headboard for a kids’ room.
If you’ve got a lot of books why not just stretch your bookshelf headboard as far as you can? Here’s one featured on The Design Files that has little book cubbies built around the whole wall of a bed.
Just repeat the color in the room using vivacious bedding accessories nightstands or even a couple of lovely vases and you have an inviting bedroom that is both energetic and relaxing.
The exquisite (and at times artistic) inspirations on display today will surely convince you about bringing chalkboard magic into your bedroom.
The headboard is one of those features in the bedroom that makes a big impact and can often define the style statement in the remainder of the room. The headboard choices for a shabby chic bedroom are truly diverse and it is often reclaimed wooden paneling or an old shutter or barn door that seems to do the job!
Unlike a real headboard designed for a bed your bookshelf doesn’t necessarily have to be the same height and width as one. In fact the taller and wider it is the more of a statement it will make! This first example from Domino is a short one but extends out about a foot from each side of the bed.
Here’s a different example from Cote De Texas which places a mirror above a rustic dresser in between the two beds with a pyramid-like shape of wall art hung above each.
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.
Painting the walls might be the easiest way to add green to the bedroom along with bedding and accessories in a matching hue but think beyond the obvious if you want a truly captivating room.
