If you’re like most people, you probably find yourself wanting to spend more time in bed during the winter months. So why not create an ultra romantic shabby chic bedroom to dream away the dark hours?
Probably the most important element in a shabby chic bedroom is soft ruffles, along with pastels paired with white.
The palest pink blanket hides beneath white ruffled linens that make the bed look like a soft cloud. In addition to romantic bedding, be sure to include some rustic, vintage elements to the space like old shuttered doors and distressed wood panels that create a headboard. Textured pillows add a bit of color.
A textured sisal rug gives the bedroom a bit of texture. Consider elements of whimsy too, like the paper butterfly cutouts on the vintage makeshift headboard. The wood and textured rug help balance the feminine ruffles and pale colors.
A closer look at the bedding reveals ruffles on the bedspread, bed skirt, and pillow shams. A beaded lamp adds a bohemian vibe, which is totally appropriate for a romantic shabby chic bedroom.
Shop flea markets and second hand stores for vintage furniture that can be refinished. It’s also a great place to find wall art that isn’t outrageously expensive.
Tucked in a corner is a French style chaise paired with a vintage wrought iron lamp. Any piece of white wrought iron is perfect for shabby chic style. Note the beautiful vintage linens hanging at the window.
