Pastel hues have gone on to rule the world of fashion and design in the last few years and here is your chance to try them out in the bedroom as well. Pastels and shabby chic go like hand in glove and it is an approach that never fails. Gentle pink watery yellows and elegantly cool greens help punctuate the antique decors and give them a colorful new lease on life.
Modern materials consist of steel concrete glass and plastic but they also include wood and varied ‘softer’ materials. In Organic Modernism complex woodworking techniques were combined with sculptural and organic forms (famous proponents included Danish designers Kaare Klint and Hans J. Wegner).
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.
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.
If you love white want a bedroom that has a touch of femininity and wish to discard the glossy modern alternatives then shabby chic is indeed the way forward. White is the preferred choice in most shabby chic bedrooms as it sets a relaxing backdrop that lets your vintage finds and antique accessories shine though.
For bedrooms that lack enough wall space a plain old bookshelf used as a headboard is one of the best ways to combine two pieces of furniture into one.
You can also have some real fun with the bedding. BHG shows a couple of twin beds with cute designs on the sheets plus trees and owls on the decorative pillows. Or why not keep it simple in the country? These two beds feature crips white bedding from Crate & Barrel with a bright green wall behind them.
Contemporary bedrooms are all about a neutral color scheme that is elegantly accentuated by pops of color. These colorful additions can often be swapped out with ease to alter the appeal of the room and its color palette with changing trends and seasons.
