The shabby chic bedroom interior is basically a transformed elegant look of that traditional country room design we used to see in those classic romantic films. This interior is often infused with a French inspiration that compliments the basic design properties of the country interior. Incorporating mostly pastel colors and “old-looking” furnishings will make your shabby chic room remodel get enchanting results. This design inspiration will always be ideal for your daughter’s room or even with the master bedroom. 

Most people consider this interior as a variation of vintage bedroom ideas because most designers make use of prevalently white or pale paint colors for the walls. These colors associated with harmony and serenity often extends to the shabby chic bedding selection that you can actually choose from. Completing the perfect shabby chic look for your room is not as hard as you might think. Delicate color tones of creams, mint, old rose, and the fresh vibe of whites will be some of your to go to color palettes for this project.

While you are contemplating whether to go for it or not, you can browse through the photos that we have in this article to see possible design inspirations that you can actually work with for your own bedroom. Although your own space needs to have your personality, here are some of the basic design properties for the shabby chic decor.

Light and Neutral Wall and Flooring

The furniture and accessories that we will be putting into your bedroom are full of character and personality. In order for us to bring out their best characteristics, a neutral background will be the best way to frame your chosen furniture setup.

Vintage Furniture

Most bedrooms inspired by the shabby chic design always opt for those great looking vintage furniture. The usual four-poster bed and those antique looking cabinets will be great additions when enhancing your remodeling interior. Time-worn furniture is a rage for vintage bedroom ideas not just because they look great but also because they create a timeless and nostalgic character for your bedroom. Some furniture used for victorian interiors can also be used for your shabby sheek room. The most important reminder is to not go full Victorian, one or two furniture pieces will be enough. 

Chic Accessories

Having this interior in your room is a perfect opportunity to show off your shabby chic decor items on your bedroom walls. Try to balance being cluttered and ornate when deciding on the arrangements of your accessories and other room furniture. If you have a lot of decor items, having a list of things to use for display will prevent having redundant items and it will also help you avoid the room from being too cluttered. A great way for your artworks and framed photos to contribute to your desired theme for the room is for them to also have a time-worn wood frame. Your gallery wall would surely be mesmerizing.

Install a Chandelier

One glamorous item that strikes a balance between the vintage and modern feel in your bedroom will be installing a good looking chandelier. Your bedroom’s lighting sets the mood and enhances the feeling evoked by the color of your walls. Some chandeliers may appear to be too grand, others might also be too modern. But before checking the right design, what you first need to consider is the area of your room. Before you decide to install the chandelier, make sure that you have enough room and that your ceiling is not too low. These measurements will affect the size of the chandelier that you can have in your room and would, therefore, affect the designs that you can choose from.

Choose Classic Bedspreads and Canopy

Another thing that defines the shabby chic interior is the linen and bedspreads. As you can observe with the sample photos, most bedrooms are decorated with an elaborate and “lacy” bedspread. Lace is a very common element added to the interior plan because it introduces a lot of vintage flair into your room. Adding a canopy to your bed will also enhance its classic elegance. That shabby chic headboard of your bed can easily be a focal point in your design if you are able to get the right bedspreads and linen, your pillows when dressed in vintage pillowcases will highlight it too.

Enhancing the Old Texture

Knowing that adding old textures will create a character for your room, doing it right will be a vital step for your remodeling project. Leather, lace, and those adorable chunky rugs are great additions that you can actually have apart from the usual decors you incorporate into your interior plan. The aesthetic value of your room will be as good as how functional the additions you put into it. Those adorable vintage-looking cabinets with shabby chic paintworks will be even great because they will surely compliment the entire room.

Going Floral

There’s nothing better that will complement the shabby chic interiors than adding a floral motif into your bedroom. When you put that motif somewhere into your room this enhances the romantic feeling inside. Most interior designers feel that the floral motif is very easy to add in this type of project because of the pastel and light wall colors. Instead of plain curtains, sneaking in some floral drapes will be even better. The bedspreads and pillows can also sport the motif. However, if the floral stuff creates an eyesore, adding a vase of flowers on top of your coffee table will be a great option too.

The shabby chic interior design is an easy choice for a remodeling project. Although it stemmed from trying to modernize farmhouse interiors, this type of remodeling can still showcase the personality that you want your bedroom to be characterized with. Looking for the right inspiration can be hard but once you have it to the point, that room will be as great.
