Shabby chic bedrooms have a charm all of their own. They combine the warm colors and textures of bygone eras with a sense of mystery and elegance. This is one of the more popular trends in decorating your home these days. You can add some very classic touches with shabby chic furniture, linen fabrics, light and airy furnishing pieces, and a few accent pieces like shabby chic lamps and candle holders. Shabby chic furniture and furnishings can add a certain mystique to any bedroom.
Some of the best shabby chic bedrooms are those that have a sense of mystery. You can create this type of atmosphere in a bathroom with a very feminine, yet country French look or even in a library type room with a rustic vintage look. It’s all about the personality of the owner. In a bedroom that has a certain mystique, something as simple as a patterned bedspread or an embroidered comforter can add a great deal to that charm. If you don’t really care for these older style pieces, you can still create a great atmosphere with shabby chic curtains and throws, bed skirts, and lampshades.
The shabby chic style is a bit nostalgic. So if you love the old vintage photographs of your grandparents or great-grandparents, you can use those prints or reproductions on your walls as centerpieces or even framed art pieces. You can turn a normal photograph into a one of a kind work of art. You can use shabby chic collage paper and fabric scrapbooks to display these pieces around the bedroom.
If you are more interested in the feel of shabby chic, than perfumes and colognes make a great addition to your decor. You can find so many different types of shabby chic perfumes that it will be impossible to choose just one. Colognes are available in a variety of classic masculine scents like musk, tobacco, leather, and amber. You can also find unique scents such as patchouli, Mandarin, and rose. You can even get perfumes in the holiday flavors which include cinnamon and nutmeg. For those who like to wear classic Cologne scents, you can use aromatherapy essential oils.
Fabrics have always been an important part of any bedroom decor. A simple bed sheet set can go a long way in adding that look of shabby chic to your bedroom. You can find just about any fabric in the shabby chic collection. You can go with anything from brocade to velvet and even flannel. Don’t forget the throws and curtains that match your shabby chic bedding. Try using fabrics in shades of gray or off-white for a very sophisticated look.
Shabby chic furniture is another essential for creating a shabby chic bedroom. Try to avoid the signature mission style furniture that comes in bright, lime green colors. Instead, go with wrought iron or some wood that is aged in an aged fashion. Wrought iron is great because it will balance out the lime green color of the furniture. You can also use wicker on the dresser and mirrors for a shabby chic look.
When you’re shopping for shabby chic bedding blankets, it’s all about the details. One of the most charming details in shabby chic fabrics is the sheath. This is very reminiscent of a silky satin fabric. Look for sheath covers that come in many different colors such as white, cream, green, and cream tones. Sheath covers look fantastic with shabby chic curtains and other in vintage, shabby chic fabrics.
There are so many ways you can make your bedroom cozy and inviting. With shabby chic fabrics, you can transform any bedroom into an inviting, romantic haven. If you’re looking for a great way to update your bedroom, shabby chic bedding blankets and other vintage fabrics are a great place to start. Go for more sheik-like styles to add that extra touch of elegance.
