Dream Shabby Chic

sweetdreams_banner Dream Shabby Chic by Victoria

I share my bedroom with another person, namely my man, so my bedroom is a long way off from my dream bedroom.  He is not a man who likes girly things or throws or cushions so our bedroom is very minimalistic with teak furniture from Indonesia. The compromise was that I had a ”girls” room, one that wasn’t our spare room or our bedroom that I could decorate exactly how I wanted. 

So I often find myself picking up heavy home magazines, on my commute home, and planning my dream bedroom and here is what I think it might look like:

A chic french heaven of throws, cushions, white washed wooden floorboards, crisp white bed linen with pale pink dusky accents, cherry blossom, fairy lights and oversized mirrors.  And it seems I am not alone in my choice as fashion and home designers are predicting a big trend towards pale dusky pinks for AW2013 and the cultural re-set to old fashioned values means people are investing in traditional style furniture that will last you through to old age.

The colour palette is fresh whites with accents in dusky warm colours. Opt for coffees, pinks and even a warm sage green:

This look is about choosing your statement pieces, such as an oversized headboard, a dressing table or bedside chair, and then bringing the eye to these features by adding fairy lights, billowing lace curtains and strategically placed chair cushions.  It’s seemingly cluttered yet everything is well thought through in terms of position and size.

In one word;  beautiful.

What would your dream bedroom look like?
