This is precisely what an accent wall in chalkboard paint does. The popular modern trend is to use it as a headboard accent wall and if your bedroom is already draped in gentle relaxing neutral hues then a black chalkboard wall is indeed the perfect choice.
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.
Got a twin bed? No problem — bookshelf headboards are great for kids’ rooms student dorm rooms and even guest rooms! Just grab a more narrow bookshelf that makes a better fit for a smaller bed like these two examples from Small Rooms on Tumblr and Susanna Carter on Pinterest.
The use of various shades of white also minimizes visual fragmentation in the room and it is a color that works beautifully with French country beach cottage chic or just cottage chic variants of the style. As a rule when in doubt turn to white in the shabby chic bedroom!
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.
The greatest contemporary designs – as with modern designs – are those that truly connect with people. They will likely become the heirlooms of the future.
Those who feel that an accent wall in green or green décor are not their thing can still add the color by placing a couple of potted plants to fill up those empty corners. It is an easy eco-friendly and healthy choice that will instantly alter the mood in the bedroom.
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.
