As we alluded to earlier green and white is a smart combination that works well in a modern bedroom and balances energetic overtones with a serene backdrop. The amount of green you use here depends on the size of the room and the amount of natural light that floods into your bedroom. Smaller bedrooms with too much green might seem both overwhelming and visually cluttered.
Contemporary – in a literal sense – is not specifically limited to any one particular style yet it is often attributed to design and architecture deemed fashionable modish novel and smart.
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.
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.
Chalkboard paint is easy to apply takes little extra effort when compared to normal paint jobs and if you are not willing to try out a whole wall covered in chalkboard paint you can start off with smaller sections or even beside decor.
And instead of walls you can also turn to the headboard closet doors or even the bedside table for chalkboard beauty. Decor clad in chalkboard paint can be moved around to a different room if needed making them far more resourceful than those accent walls.
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.
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.
