Whichever style you're decorating a room in, it is important to colour coordinate as much as possible in order to provide a sense of cohesion. Here, the key furniture pieces in the bedroom are the same shade of cream, allowing for experimentation with the two different coloured walls.
House To Home
When a bedroom is decorated in a cosy, welcoming way, the lighting must also reflect that style. To this end, the light fixture hanging over the bed, designed to look like a bunch of flower petals in keeping with the rest of the room, will dissipate light softly throughout the room.

Attic conversions can offer good opportunities for those looking to adopt the shabby chic style in their homes. The raw materials, such as boarded walls or floors and windows are already present, and the relatively blank slate that it should become once it has been cleared out means you can put your own design stamp on it.
Never underestimate the impact that a statement piece can have on your shabby chic bedroom and the royal blue wardrobe here stands out on its own terms, immediately drawing the eye towards it, but also coordinates well with the pale blue of the walls, curtains and pillow.

Although shabby chic is often characterised by non-matching pieces of furniture that nevertheless work well together, this doesn't rule out pieces of furniture that do match from being used together. The chest of drawers and wardrobe in this example clearly match, but the understated design and neutral colour tones mean that they can match and still be effective within a shabby chic aesthetic.

Window seats are popular shabby chic features, perfect for curling up with a book and a cup of tea on lazy afternoons. Whether your ideal seat is a small sofa next to the window or a nook built into the windowsill itself, see if your bedroom would benefit from incorporating one.

Much of the colour contrast in this room comes from the dark, rich shade of the floorboards, which helps to warm the temperature of the room, along with the mustard coloured walls. If you're lucky enough to have a fireplace, positioning the bed next to it ensures that you will feel the benefits on those cold winter nights.

Four-poster beds are a little kitsch these days, but that doesn't mean your bed needs to dispense with a frame altogether. This minimalistic shabby chic room includes a white frame over the pink-and-white bed which provides a point of interest upon entry and can be used to support drapes in the future if needed.
