A chalkboard wall in the kids’ bedroom is an absolute no-brainer as the little ones will inevitably start writing on the walls sooner or later. Instead of spending a fortune on a bedroom theme and style that is fixed chalkboard walls allow you to usher in multiple themes depending on the changing whims and fancies of your kid.
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.
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.
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.
Décor crafted from natural materials old vintage mirrors that casually sit in the bedroom corner a DIY nightstand crafted from old trunks or creative art pieces that add personality; this is the décor that truly helps fashion that dream shabby chic bedroom.
If you’re lucky enough to have really high ceilings you can take your bookshelf headboard all the way up to the top like this example from a New York apartment featured on Home Adore. You gotta love the library ladder added to this one!
Thinking about redecorating your guest bedroom? If you’re looking to replace the bed you might want to consider going for two twin beds as opposed to the typical double or queen-sized bed — especially if you have the room for it!
In fact it is the genuinely aged furnishings that seem a lot more at home and welcome in this setting than those that have been treated to get a similar finish. Of course this means that a trip to the nearest thrift store or flea market is the best way forward when shopping for shabby chic bedroom décor and accessories. There are times when you will uncover an absolute gem in a nearby garage as well so always keep your eyes open!
