Shabby chic is all about combining vintage-like designs and pre-loved bedroom furniture in your bedroom, to create a scruffy, yet sophisticated look. Basically, this style is meant to create a relaxed and comfortable ambience in a room, while still giving it an ancient feel.
ANYTHING GOES WITH SHABBY CHIC!
This means that you can slot in almost anything you want without straining your resources. If you’re stuck for ideas on bedroom colours, why don’t you try pastel colours such as, white, blue, light green or even pink? But, don’t limit yourself – try other colours as well!

If you would like to go all the way with your shabby chic theme, here are some tips to help you out…
DON’T OVERDO IT
Old furniture and bedding is fine for an authentic shabby chic look. But, be careful not to overdo it. Remember, the idea is to give your room a stylish, yet, effortless look, not to make it look disorganised and untidy. Ideally, anything you slot in should only be slightly worn, and if you don’t have such items with you, you can easily get them from second-hand stores.

BRING THE CENTERPIECE INTO FOCUS
Your bed is your bedroom’s centerpiece. So, for the ultimate in shabby chic, you may want to attach a unique headboard to your bed frame. Once you fix it, you can distress it, then, paint it to blend in with the other items in your room. A few accessories, like cushions and throws, with a Middle East design should complete the look.
Shabby chic design is a great way to give your bedroom a new look. And, the best news is that it need not cost that much, if at all!
