The Paola bedside side table is the inspiration for this inspo board. I love the distressed finish and the proportions. Because of these features I felt the need to go down a Shabby Chic interior style direction with the other pieces, keeping it neutral but adding a bit of glam as well.
The Focal Pieces
The bedhead or bed frame is the focal piece of any bedroom, in this Shabby Chic inspo board I’ve chosen the Hamilton bed head in white and rattan as the focal piece. I like how simple and striking it is. The rattan panel are natural feature through the pattern, colour and material.
To accompany the Hamilton bed head is for me the star of this shabby chic inspo board, the Paola bedside tables. There’s lots to love in this piece from the material, oak, I love oak. Then there’s the distressed effect, essential for that authentic shabby chic appeal and the handles. The metal bronze drop pulls. Such a small piece that adds a top notch finishing touch.
In Shabby Chic interior design it’s not uncommon to find a gold accent, it’s certainly a colour that is associated with French interior design, that why I’ve included the Cordell table lamp. There are a few features to appreciate in this piece from the gold body to the white cotton shade. The gold is subtle but certainly elevates this inspo board.
Then we have the Clarette round mirror. I love how this mirror looks like porthole and I love the embellishments, again subtle but classic. Be mindful with the placement of mirrors. Feng shui principles refer to the strong energy or chi of a mirror, so don’t use them if your bed faces a floor ceiling built in wardrobe with sliding door mirrors.
My Favourite Pieces
Actually I love all the pieces in this shabby chic inspo board, each piece is striking in its own right but together work seamlessly.
