Modern design and architecture is for the most part timeless classic and iconic. Revisionist in nature modern vehemently opposed decorative styles; it was – and continues to be – progressive enlightened and avant-garde.
You can either constantly change the message on the walls decorations around it and the images it holds or opt for a chalkboard wall that is less dynamic and far cleaner. As we alluded to earlier this is a bedroom addition that well and truly reflects .
Vintage and antique finds are the lifeline of shabby chic no matter which subtle twist you wish to incorporate into the style. Distressed finishes are always welcome here as décor with an aged worn-out look helps give that touch of authenticity to the bedroom.
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.
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!
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.
A similar and comparably creative example from Juvenile Hall Design shows books open and attached by their covers to the wall above the bed with one simple shelf for a lamp and a plant! That’s one DIY project that might be perfect for any extreme bookworm.
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.
