A Shabby Chic Bathroom
Clean and crisp, often in all white, with splashes of color, found in towels, window treatments, shower curtains and other decorative accessories.
Other decorative accessories are candles in swirly candlesticks, fresh flowers or green plants, vintage hand mirror, brush and comb set, tissue and soap holders and perfume and lotion dispensers.
Shop estate sales and antique shops for porcelain sinks, claw foot bathtubs, time-worn wood vanities, cabinets, and wall shelves, which are great for storing linens and other bathroom essentials.
A crowned wood shelf is perfect for displaying perfume bottles, decorative soaps, bath beads, shower and bath oils.
Whether you choose shabby chic paint colors in the traditional white, or another color such as vintage yellow, sea-foam green or robins egg blue, always choose a paint with a matte finish, shabby chic walls in any room should never have a glossy finish.
Depending on the level of privacy needed in your bathroom, window treatments can range anywhere from plantation shutters, roman shades, white wooden mini blinds to lace or small print floral panels.
Take your time when choosing lighting for the bathroom, as it is one of the most important aspects of the bathroom. Outside of functionality lighting, chose an antique lantern, a small table lamp with a light pink floral design or a beautiful small chandelier for shabby chic charm.
In the Shabby Chic bathroom, mirrors are also very important. Consider hanging antique mirrors over the vanity, in a finish that matches the bathroom decor.
