A Shabby Chic Bedroom

Shabby chic is a fun home decorating style. It's almost as if you are trying to give your home a haphazard look, slightly worn out, a little bit mis-matched, traditional with a twist. Originally seen in European country homes that were expensive to keep up, shabby chic was borne out of the necessity to keep home decor costs to a minimum.

Certain design elements are associated with shabby chic: fringe and tassels, different types and patterns of fabric used in the same room, distressed surfaces, and flea market finds.
 
It seems easy enough to get this look on your own, on a budget. Shop the remnants table in your local fabric store to get the different textured and patterned fabrics, and make pillows and window treatments yourself. With a little bit of sewing, you can make a shabby chic bedroom haven of your own!
 
View the gallery above for a few additional tips and tricks to help you get this look on your own.
