A shabby chic look is often associated with vintage items, sepia-colored tones, piles of wood, and basic beads, although the two are NOT the same style. The look is rather dainty and delicate with a feminine touch…which can be feminine or manly, depending on how you use the style. This style is friendly and comfortable and borders on cottage chic. This style may or may not be best suited to a home office – the look would be a shame since so many accessories and desk organizers are required to fit this style. BUT it can be quite stylish in a bathroom.
Whatever your style may be, a chandelier fitting your space is always a surefire way to add height and style. Large light fixtures hanging over the lush, decadent tub may be difficult to find, but if you can get your hands of some brass fittings that would look glamorous in a bathroom setting, the look will be right up your alley. Especially at night when you’d like to really get into the mood of the great day.
Antique or antique accessories.
Antique or antique accessories make a huge difference in the overall look of a bathroom. They’re more than a binding point; they are an integral part of the room. When you have an item of high sentimental value, it naturally becomes somewhat of an afterthought. Save that special piece for a special occasion just to really draw the eye.
Wall Mounted Organizers.
Mounted organizers are a great way to add organization in a small space, while allowing it to mirror the form of the room itself. As opposed to hanging pieces of art or other non-maintenance objects from the ceiling, mounted organizers allow you to take advantage of height which could serve as a design element or even a focal point.
If you are lucky enough to have vertical drawer dividers in your bathroom (as opposed to horizontal drawer dividers), split the drawer space in half, as this is an excellent way to add visual weight to the space in a creative way.
Create a Gallery Wall.
A gallery wall is a great way to decorate your bathroom, if you want, and it can also be a very simple way to create a focal point in the bathroom for a reason of its own. A gallery wall can be anything from a small wall featuring art, a landscape, or a small shelf holding a favorite magazine, among others.
Since it can be a very simple wall treatment, a gallery wall can even mimic the look of other spaces very well by being wall-to-wall. Using matching frames or spread out artwork is often a very easy way to make your pieces stand out; however, if you want to make the décor itself the focal point, at least split the space down slightly (but not so much that you can’t use the gallery wall for that purpose).
Gallery board / hanging space.
A gallery wall or a wall that is wall-to-wall and is made of furniture is generally more interesting than one that is simply wall-to-wall. In this case, the addition of a framed piece of art creates a more casual, relaxed vibe to the entire gallery wall than if the artwork itself were vertical.
Furniture is a fantastic resource to instantaneously change the look of a space just by hanging it on the wall, whether it’s a corner, near a door, on a wall, on the other, or it’s merely an accent wall. The pocketing feel of a floating piece, such as an ottoman, chair, or even floor lamp will instantly freshen up and brighten a space, and it’s also an easy DIY project.
Décor is so important in a home that might look like too-high or too cool sometimes. Such things have been quite successful in attracting attention and building up what should be perceived as an aesthetic “story” of a space, even where all the visual tissue is present. In other words, a space can be beautiful and interesting and have good structural lean, even if it’s not obvious of what that is physically happening inside and what is in fact just a physical setting or floor plan.
