A bed and bookshelf headboard from Simply Grove takes a different approach by positioning one side of the bed against it as opposed to the head of the bed.
The spirit of this style is all about comfort eco-conscious décor choices and a blend of vintage and antique finds with modern touches. With many different variants and an ample room to showcase both your creativity and DIY projects this is a style that lets you display your personality while transforming the bedroom into a calming retreat.
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.
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.
Of course you can even add just one chalkboard accent wall here and fill the rest of the room with loads of color and fancy decor. But chalkboard walls are not just for kids’ rooms alone and even teen bedrooms can benefit greatly from their presence.
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.
Regular everyday bookshelves are perfect for this idea but to step up your style you can get even more creative with different styles and even custom-made units if you’re willing to go that far. For example a very rustic bedroom theme from A Beautiful Mess Antiques uses an old weathered bookshelf with lots of old books to match the lovely country bedding.
Chalkboard walls are not just for kids alone and they provide you with a perfect canvas that adds color and pattern to your bedroom without much fuss. While traditionally chalkboard walls have been relegated to the kitchen and the home office the idea of giving the bedroom a touch of chalkboard charm is definitely catching on.
