The shabby chic style is sort of a mix between vintage and bohemian. You have the classic vintage style furniture pieces but mixed in with the free spirit of the bohemian style – like the chipped paint.
The Color Pallet: The color scheme to use to create a shabby chic style bedroom is white plus pastel shades – usually pink, but light blues and greens work well too as seen in pictures (1) and (2).
The Bed: For the bed style, the go to choice will be a French design (3) – while other ideas include an elegant four poster bed (4) (5) or a canopy bed with drapes hanging down. Having a fireplace mantle headboard is a bold statement piece (6) (7). For more headboard ideas check out our post here: Headboard Design Ideas: From Monograms to Fireplace Mantels.
Furniture Pieces and Accessories: Chipped painted furniture is the style to go for as seen in pictures (8) and (9). Regular pieces can be upcycled to the chipped style with just some sandpapering, paint, and sandpapering again.
