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.
A bookshelf headboard from Jati Belanda appears to be custom made for this bed with just some simple shelving at the top and a couple of built-in bedside tables on each side.
One of the misconceptions around is that chalkboard paint needs to be only in black. Sure most of the inspirations that we see use black for visual impact but if green or light yellow fit the color scheme and theme of your bedroom you can get them as well.
Go bright green with a couple of matching accent pieces or bright pink while keeping the bedding simple! Using twin beds in a guest bedroom is perfect for the cottage or beach house. And what better way to make it look great than by going along with the beach theme? This room from Decorative Bedroom keeps it fresh and white with some bursts of yellow.
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.
For a coastal beach theme you can really have fun with the decor. Go all out with sea-inspired wall art pieces of coral and shades of blue and other soft/neutral colors. Pottery Barn even has these lovely sheets to go along with your beach look.
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!
The terms ‘contemporary’ and ‘modern’ are often used interchangeably when describing design. It’s a common faux pas and one of which this writer is certainly guilty. In design lexicon the two words have contrasting and quite distinct meanings.
